    Oxygen Sensor

    Hi everyone, I know ive posted about this in the past but my MOT is due in 5 weeks so im trying to figure out why my car has a management light on. I was involved in a car accident not so long ago and got my car repaired, When I got my car back I had the engine management light come on and argued with the insurance company that they should put it right. I later found out that it was my oxygen sensor and it was located at the front of the car.
    So I came on here to ask for advice about it, and got told to look for anything that was hanging down from the car, since then ive noticed that there is a wire not connected to anything ( In the photo please follow the website link) can anyone offer any advice.

    The 2nd question is it a expensive / time consuming job the get this put right any ideas would be fantasic.

    Car is 1.6 Astra club. 03 reg

    Please see the photo ive taken below.

    Thanks again

    Right, the connector in your picture is not used on your car and should have nothing connected to it.

    As for you light on the dash, is it the car with the spanner light or the emmision light (engine shaped)?

    and lastly carry out a pedal test (do a quick search if your not sure how to do it) and let us know your fault codes.

    Good luck.

    oh one last thing, you car will not fail an MOT just because you have a light on. It will only fail if your emissions from the tail pipe are outside the limits.

    the code should be a 4 digit code, that only gives 3 digits
