  • Engine management light AGEN !!!

    the engine management light on my car keeps coming on the last 3 weeks it's been on 2ice, and in the last 2/3 months its been on 4/5 times normally i don't mind but its costin me £20 for a local garage to check it and switch it off as vx try charging me £45, its the normal code summit about the cat, this time its came on agen is it worth paying another £20 for them to tell exactly the same thing, last time i did'nt get it checked nd it went off afer a week

      Don't pay that dude is it your zorste emmisions ? Just do the pedle check yourself and check on here! If it's nothing important and just the usual ones leave it as iirc they reset after so many key turns! If not disconect your battery for 10-30 minutes!

          Just buy a £30 fault reader from ebay and clear the codes yourself.

              Pedal test:
              press the brake and accelerator fully at the same time then turn the ignition 3/4 and where your mileage shows you will get a rolling list of fault codes.

              If its anything like 42011 then thats cat efficiency, this DOESNT mean your cats buggered or breaking up it just means it degraded a tadge and the ECUs recognising it but it will fluctuate!

              Your options are:
              1) keep unplugging the battery to get rid of the light
              2) Pay a tuner to widen your emission parameters
              3) Get a stage 2 remap and number 2 will automatically happen!

              Whatever happens though it is not doing any damage driving it

                          Mate if you do take the ds unit, it's unlikely the light will keep coming on, as someone said, the parameters should be wider
