We have a 4 year old Skoda Fabia 1.4 16V.

We kept getting the engine management light coming on and then after about 3 starts it would go out again.

The car has always been sluggish to accelerate from stop, but once going was fine.

We managed to get the car into the dealer with the light still on and the computer gave an error. An error that had NO fix. Searching through their electronic information gave no fix, but one of the mechanics remembered the error code from a written bulletin update they received last year and the fix was new software.

The dealer loaded the new software free of charge (as the problem should have been fixed at the last service) and the car now drives correctly and no longer gives warning lights.

If your Fabia gives warning lights ask if there is new software for it.
