Fiesta EMS warning light - linac eng
I don't see any engine management warning light on the dash of my 1.25 fiesta. How do you know if the EMS detects a problem with a transducer for example?
Can you read fault codes without expensive test eqpt?

There isn't one and yes you do need specialist equipment.

How old is your Fiesta? My 2000 model has an engine management light at the top left of the instruments. It comes on for a few seconds before starting the engine.

It's unlikely to indicate a minor fault but if it flashes while driving then the car should be seen to quickly.

It's a 97 model. I think they changed the dash design shortly after. If it doesn't have one it's a bit daft really. I'm sure I could probably tell if it wasn't running OK but I'm sure many wouldn't and may drive on causing damage to CAT etc.

Engine management lights did not become a legal requirement until Jan.2001.The electronics system could be interrogated before that but did not store fault codes.

Not all fiestas have the engine warning light unfortunately. Ford being a bit tight, but it does have diagnostic equipment onboard. models up to 2000 did not have them fitted. certain basic models mainly. especially a lot of endura's didn't have them as well.
