    Scangauge arrived...

    4 errors found on my ECU...

    but i cleared them, eagerly awaiting to see if the light would go off the dash... and it did.

    now, am i right in thinkin, because i cleared them without doing anything to the car, would these error codes come back on after a certain amount of time/miles?

    i cant remember what they were, only the first one of the 4.

    could they have just been errors that just needed clearing? or if they are something a bit more "real" will they come back?

    Oter questions:

    how big is the petrol tank on the astra active 1.6 8v 53 plate?

    are they all 50 litres?

    Is there anything else i need to know?

    BTW, the thing is tiny compared to what i imagined...

    perfect size for swapping with the MFD... IMO.

    Something i will be tackling before PVS, fingers crossed.

    No, because none are 50 litres. They're all 52 litres.

    Just went out to my car:

    3 error codes have reared thier heads again...

    this time i was armed with a pen...

    Right:

    P0135 Ox Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)

    P0141 Ox Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

    P0443 Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve circuit Malfunction

    im guessing the first 2 in the list would be to do with the lambda sensor.

    The scan guage gives you the code, where did you get the descriptions?

    from a link in a thread geoff gave me a few days ago:

    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=101837

    After a short google of the first 2 error codes, it seems that it points to my lambda sensor at the front of the engine, and also one just after the cat... maybe it fell out? i need to get under and have a look...

    the 3rd code im not sure about...

    anyone any ideas...


    oooh, also, how do i find out what engine type/code i have?

    Cheers I have created a spreadsheet database and code finder page, PM me with an e-mail address should any one want a copy.

    I'll send a PM to MatG to see if he want it for the site.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
