    Unhappy Really need some help now

    following this thread

    http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.p...eferrerid=2648

    I have changed my AFM and the light still comes on

    on top of that (this started happening before i fitted the new AFM) the traction control and abs lights go off but then come back on and stay on after starting the car

    Like the title says, i really need some help now. I will try and get it booked in to vaux but not sure when i will be able to get there.

    The car seems to run fine, no loss in power.

    its a z20zet in a coupe (y reg)

    thanks in advance for any help

    I went to take it to vaux to have a tech 2, thought I would get some petrol on the way, when I got back in the car after filling up the light was off and has stayed off since. is this just luck or a delayed concquence (sp) of fitting a new afm? I am not sure it its a good thing it has just going away or not, cos not I am kinda just waiting for it to come back on.

    any thoughts?

    It takes a while for the fault to clear itself after fitting the new AFM.
