Hi Alto owners,
I'm new to the forum, usually riding my Honda CTX1300 but I also drive my Mother in Law's Alto 1.0L over here in the UK.
It's nearly 14 years old, current mileage is a little over 24,000 miles so you can see it doesn't do much travelling. She has always used it for short journeys, to church, shopping, visiting people around Gloucester.
She stopped driving a couple of years ago which is why I drive her around now (she's 89 years old, Gloucester roads are a lot safer nowadays!).
The engine warning light has been on for the best part of 7 or 8 years that I know of but there is nothing wrong. It is serviced each year, although with the mileage it could be every 2 or 3 years but for safety reasons I like to get it all checked over during a service.
I noticed that when I did a longer journey, 160 miles non-stop, the engine light went off. After getting home a couple of days later, another 160 miles, it was still off.
A few days of 3 or 4 mile trips it came back on again.
Any ideas why the light might be on? Is it possible that the numerous very short journeys is responsible, something getting bunged up maybe?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
