Toxic Fume Warning !


I have a 55 plate 1.6 Megane.

I have a tow bar fitted, to which I attach a Mottez bike rack.

I have used the bike rack three times and each time a couple of days later the Toxic Fume Warning light comes on and each time I take it to the garage and they reset it.

The bikes (and rack) do not exceed the nose weight limit (75kg).

Any ideas what could be going on ? The garage seem to think its co-incidence

It's a real hassle to keep going back and forth to the dealer to have a warning light reset, that could in theory, result in damage to the engine if ignored.

It may have something to do with the trailer electrics being connected and disconnected. Reading through threads about electrical faults it seems when one thing plays up, the rest come out in sympathy.
I wouldn't know where to start when it comes to resolving a fault like this but if it always happens after you've had the trailer on, that must be a starting point.
