can't find the owners handbook! i've put it down somehwhere lol

there's a light on on the dash but I don't know what it is, 'the wife' just rang to ask what it is, she says it's like a picture of a valve?

any ideas? or can someone take a pic/scan of the page in the handbook

Don't want her to drive anywhere if it's sumat major, but can't be arsed with the 20 mile round trip to go an do a code read if it's sumat that can wait till she gets home!

Cheers for the help

turned out to be the emmision light (picture of an engine not a valve Rolling Eyes)

Gave it a code read and it says 02 sensor not present, now I know the lambda on the downpipe has been changed (and it's still shiney) however the wiring going to it looks a little bodgetastic all wrapped up with insulation tape......

So tomorrow I think i'll take at look at that first and give it a test with the meter, I'm assuming it's a cheap universal one so I may change it for a proper bosch one....

OPCOM has paid for itself already Very Happy

At least it wasn't what she said it was in the first place, rings me (while driving down the road) telling me she thinks the oil light is on!!!

You're lucky she even told you, most women would just ignore the light or not even notice it

had a look at it yesterday and the fault code points to the heating part of the lambda

so got the test meter out and it was registering what it should, also checked for voltage going to the lambda and that was fine........

After speaking to a few people I know they all suggested changing it as the one that's on there is a cheap universal one, also found a site suggesting that cheap ones can often throw up fault codes and eventually the management light even though it is working. Picked up a new bosch direct fit one today for £69.81, hopefgully will get it fitted when the missus gets home Rolling Eyes
