    Vito115cdi Duel liner
    Hi All,
    I have a Vito 115cdi dual liner, its a 2004 with 72000 miles on the clock.
    For the past few months I've mainly been using it at weekends but the orange engine light has come on, I know that I'll need to take it to the local dealer, hopefully I can get some answers here first to help tackle them as I've heard they prefer dealing with cars not vans (also I'm limited to dealer garages-joys of Island living).
    The van is driving and running fine and seems not to have any issues also I was told that the light could be on as all it needs is a good long run to clear it?? It's not due a service for another 4000 miles.
    Hope someone can shed some light on this for me.
    Thank you.

    If the engine light has come on it could be due to either:

    Fuel tank run dry
    In the injection system
    In the ignition system or
    In the exhaust system where the emission limit may have been exceeded.

    Hope that helps
