"Slow Down" light?
It seems weird to me but in my most recent drives, for about the first 15 minutes or so into the drive when I accelerate in the lower gears I get this warning light that pops up in the same location of the "Check Engine OK" light during start-up, and its says "SLOW DOWN". To me it seems contrary to the point of having a Ferrari to begin with.
A friend of mine told me that he believes is something to do with the Catalytic Converter possibly being clogged or something and I should bring the car to the local official Ferrari Dealer for service. Prior to doing that I checked with the Ferrari dealer first and they suggested the following prior to brining the car in as follows-
1. They recommended I listen to the engine more during start up to see if it sounds rough at start up which could possible mean one of the 2 banks of 6 cylinders are not firing in sync or one bank is not firing evenly. There is a module which apparently controls the firing order and if it detects uneven firing it would display the warning light.
2. I was also told it could just be a faulty Oxygen sensor that needs replacing.
- The Ferrari Service person recommended that I leave the car for about 45 to 60 seconds prior to turning it over during start-up after seeing the "Check Engine Ok" light at start-up. If the problem goes away then I should just leave it alone, if it continues then I should schedule a visit.
Does anyone here have an opinion on what it could be?
