Hi All,
I have the dreaded error message on dash on start up
'Engine Fault' no lights on the dash, car drives as normal.
Had the car 'code read' by independent and 2 possible issues. Fuel pump (which I have now replaced, but no difference) or Fuel Pump Relay. Where is this located please ? Cannot find this anywhere. Not under the bonnet main fuse box. Main Dealer was useless. Had no reference circuit diagrams and said if I brought the old one in they could order it.
Many thanks for any help

My engine management light does not come on to warn me of any issues.
The Grandland 1.5 turbo diesel has a host of issues and no engine management light or warning. Drives fine but has a white smoke coming out of exhaust, a rough ammonia smell.
Plus my exhaust manifold needed replaced, the error showed up inside a vauxhall dealership once a diagnostic check, but I could have been driving for ages with that problem and NO warning lights.

I have a Grandland x auto 2019, if it's going to happen, it usually happens near the end of a long drive, the engine management light, spanner light (limp mode) and a message saying 'engine fault repair needed', had it to the garage 3 times, the fault shows as something to do with a valve position (can't remember), if this was the problem then the engine wouldn't run. The mechanic whispered to me 'turn the engine off for a few minutes and it'll probably sort it, we very rarely solve this type of problem', so that's what I do now, it cures the limp mode instantly but management light stays on for about a day.
The more regular quirk is sometimes when I put the right indicator on, it pings an error sound and shows a map of the nearest service centres, I also cancel this and ignore it.
Just wondered if this happens to anyone else and have they actually found the cure.

You would be better asking the question on a Kia Sportage forum as this forum is for Vauxhall Grandlands.
