Occasionally when i drive and the car is warm (usually a little above 90 degrees water temp) the STOP light comes on in my dash cluster.
This has happened a few times in the past week the longest it stays on is 20-30 seconds and even when i clutch in it will stay on.
Is this an electrical fault or does it something to do with the cars knock sensor? Does anyone know the parameters that will set this warning light to come on.
My motor is going to have the headgasket replaced ASAP as i think it has a hairline fracture as oil has seeped into my cooling system and my radiatior, hoses and end tank are all filled with a brownish paste/disgusting gue. Its lining my radiator hose (i checked it its a few mm thick lining the hose).
My car is running a little hotter than usual (but never much more than 90) and im pretty sure this warning STOP light has something to do with this headgasket problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (regarding the warning light) The headgasket is getting taken of ASAP.
