I think you mean you have the Check Engine warning light displaying once you have started the engine.
If this warning light is displaying when driving the car there is an irregularity with the engine operation.
You need to take the car to the dealer or other competent service business so they can hook up a scan tool to the vehicle and see what fault codes the computer is generating and what other irregularities are apparent with the engine operation.
Don't delay getting it checked out or the onboard computer could send the vehicle into "limp mode" as an engine safeguard measure if the problem gets worse.
There are multiple causes(dozens) for a CE warning to display and it needs to be properly diagnosed so the correct repair can be undertaken. Even relatively small and easier to repair problems can still cause a CE warning to display such as a vacuum leak or the failure of a sensor unit. So get it checked out ASAP.
Basically, it means the check engine warning light didn't light up when it should. Perhaps a burned out bulb?
Every vehicle has a "system check" that happens every time you turn the key on. Most people don't know it is happening right before thier eyes. So if you go out and get into your car in the morning and you turn the key to "on" but then don't go the rest of the way to the "start" position there are several warning lights on. The check engine light is one of them. All the system is doing is running power through the light to show it is functional.
It doesn't mean there is something wrong, it is just showing that an error "can" be displayed if an error existed by the light being on. Try it next time. Turn the key on but dont start the engine. If your check engine light is off, then that is what they stated in the report.
get the computer failure codes, also may be one or more of your transmission shift solenoid sensors. any one of transmission sensors could cause this. they are a lot less expensive. re-post with failure codes
I to have a 1988 Daimler 3.6 vanden plas. I would greatley appreciate if some one could let me know about any information on this model, ie; what made the vdp different from the standard daimler 3.6, production numbers and origional cost. In regards to your question, my daimler also said it had fuel failure. I put some injector cleaner in with the petrol and the warning hasnt come up since. As for the circuit 2 failure, it could be numerous things, but start with checking the fuses in the left side fuse box. It could also mean that a light bulb or other elecrical item has a broken circuit somewhere.
