Petrol or diesel? The most common petrol problem is oxygen sensor. Not the end of the world but just give us a bit more info. I am at JAE all day tomorrow and am a Steward at Nevill Hill open day Sunday so hopefully someone will comment. If not, sit tight!

If anybody likes trains and is in Yorkshire you might like the Open Day and it is open to the public.

sorry only gave half the info,

54 plate 2.0 vvti Petrol Automatic 5 doors in gold (even if the log book does say biege)

Gold! You never said gold. Oh dear that could terrible. Just kidding. Blimey you must have been sat watching - that was quick reply.

Sometimes those sensors are dead sensitive and go out of range quite easily. The simple way is to get the code (you can do this yourself if you buy a reader. Just search for "U480 code reader" on ebay and you will get one for less than £30).

Or go to a local garage and get the code and come back to us. You might well find if you get the light put out it doesn't come back on again for months or even years.

EDIT; If you visit JAE tomorrow I will take my reader and do it for you for nothing!!!

out of interest it passed its MOT last weekend (after new front shocks and a new tyre) is it something that they should have picked up?, it also had a new windscreen this afternoon , so you can imagine how pleased I was when the bl**dy light came on

If you read post No 403 here I believe you can take your car in for £2.50 or leave it in the car park (which is more) and I will come out to you.

I will take the code reader anyway so don't worry if you can't get there. It will save you about £27.50 if you can!!!

My info says bank 1 sensor 1 oxygen sensor. There is some recent info on this or pm duncerduncs as he located a good source.

Cheers

PS, put the light out again for now. It may run like that for weeks and it doesn't seem to affect MOT readings.

its out, and the car has just passed its MOT so I'm not going to panic, only seems to happen if I stretch its legs up the motorway for an hour or so then next time I start the car its on

thanks again Anchorman

O2 sensor positive current control circuit B1 S1 according to my Autel software (off the net). When my second sensor failed it was initially intermittant but then the light stayed on continously.
