Re: EOBD System Engine Control System

it all depends why its on really. you need to have the diagnostics code read on it and we'll be able to give you a better answer

Re: EOBD System Engine Control System

Hi mate and WELCOME TO THE FORUM!

Yea, as above, it means that a sensor in the engine has sensed that something is wrong. When it does this, it stores a code in its memory. Connecting the car to a fault code reader or diagnostics machine should give you a clue as to what it is. It could be a simple fix, or it could be something more in depth, but i personally wouldnt be put off buying the car untill you know what the fault code is.

Hope that helps,
Alan
