Engine malfunction service now

My 15 reg B Max Titanium started to display Engine Malfunction Service Now
And blowing fuse 34 and vechile refused to restart towed home by AA called out private mobile auto electrician.
He spent 40mins trying to find fault.
He moved a wire behind air filter box and we got a spark so he removed air filter box and there it was the wiring loom had been rubbing on part of battery shelf and worn down to wire.
Taped up the exposed wire put plastic tube over top to stop rubbing and tied back with a cable tie.
Replaced 20 amp fuse and hey presto it worked.Still going stong 3 days later fault solved.
