I am based in daventry in Northamptonshire, I took to Halfords and they said the code that came up was clutch slip they have deleted it but why would it do this ?
I have to assume that you dont know what "clutch slip" means.
Such jargon is common alas. I'll try to explain please dont be offended if it doesn't come accros correctly.
In essense it means the power from the engine is'nt being sent to the front wheels correctly because a part known as a "clutch" is'nt working properly.
The engine (once running) spins all the time, faster or slower as you press the accelerator producing more or less power.
The "clutch" allows this power to be sent to the wheels in a controled manner via a flywheel and gearbox. Its off or on with some give.
If the clutch is "slipping" then its not gripping the flywheel properly and has too much "give".
This can be caused by wear or a fault.
In this case (as intellimods suggest) the cars software could be miss-identifying normal operation as a fault.
You need someone to look at it and explain properly whats happening.
Alas a lot of places will pick up on your lack of knowledge and attempt to mug your wallet.
