Well no it's basically the right answer, but yes, could be a number of things. A dodgy blue temperature gauge sensor can cause this to come on as well

Mine was a false positive actually, came on and I shat my pants. Turned out it was just a bison on the roof not a horse at all, so that was a relief as I'm sure you can imagine.

Wow, you really did have a lucky escape there. Others haven't been that lucky, sadly.

I remember when my Girl Friend had a baby and put it in the oil filler cap, that made the 'STOP' light come one too. Annoying thing was, she promised that she had put it in the bin. Crazy Lying b*tch Angry

It's the kind of mistake you only make once, I remember catching a friend replacing my radiator with a hammock, that makes the light come on too.

Although I haven't had this problem I did once use a cat skin as my air filter and my GF borrowed the car - It came back with tip-ex all over the 'STOP' sign. Weird . . .

I got a chav wedged in my front bumper that caused the light to come on. I like him being there though so I just removed the bulb Thumbs up

An an unrelated note my headgasket went twice in the last month. Temperature was fine though as the stop light didn't come on so i'm baffled Dunno

Nothing to do with me removing the bulb because of that chav then? It should still come on right?

Absolutely it should still come on, regardless of whether there's a bulb in it.

That's ok then, as long as it'll still make me aware of equestrian creatures on my roof.

O/T but when you're on the naughty step here it says "This is not the place for pointless or abusive banter". Thank god this isn't abusive you fat faced twat

No more off-topic than the rest of the thread, I wouldn't worry. Don't really get that message, I thought that's *exactly* what this forum's for?!

I did notice the OP hasn't replied in a while, looks like he didn't appreciate our useful info.

with the intention of bringing this thread right back on topic and just in case you were all wondering, according to my haynes manual, the blue sensor is there to measure the weight of the animal on your roof which is then clearly displayed on the orange backlit screen that sits behind the steering wheel. It also says that older cars tend to attract heavier beasts, so please for the love of god watch out if your driving a P1!
