Hi there, im looking at buying this ve which has engine light showing on the dash and the center screen? i was told that the car has been sitting there for 36 days does anyone know if that is the reason why the light is on (battery issue)? the engine has oil, starts and runs normal?

If i could get a few responses asap would be great, thanks :boxing:

ah no it doesn't have any message and it doesn't turn off, i was told by 2 people it would be the battery that has caused it but (they said it should turn off after your drive it for abit), its at an auction so i cant drive the car, so its risky but it only has 49k kms on it.

hmm is a bit of a risk, prob a good chance its just the battery but would be good to borrow a scantool and see what it is just incase even if they charge u $60 or so for the use could save u getting a worse problem later...

Could be something simple. More than likely is. CEL is usually just something to check not something badly wrong.
