I should stop going to the trafford centre as it brings on warning lights :| At least last time it went off on the next journey.
Approx 45mile each way. This time it came on virtually straight away & on the way back it was on as soon as the car started. Doesn't flash, just stays on.
Did the pedal test which brought up the following codes:
^^ i've had them since i bought the car Sept 2008. It then showed up new codes & i googled them - (results shown in italics) (NOTE: don't know if the results are true of the code)...
P0460 - Purge flow sensor circuit malfunction C-14
P0650 - Malfunction Indicator (MI) Control Circuit Open C-36
P1650 - Service Vehicle Soon Light Voltage High C-37
This is bugging me now. I'm half tempted to take it to Vaux & say fix it, but it bothers me quite a bit as my pockets aren't bottomless & i can see how this could turn into a money pit trying 101 different possibilities costing a lot, when i only paid £1400 for the car.
Spoke to my dad & mentioned the emissions light & he was talking about some temporary fix. I said i didn't want this. I want a FIX and not a temp one.
He compared it to his Sierra & says that fails on the emissions all the time, but the mechanic chucks a can of [product] in & it's enough to pass the MOT.
Would really appreciate someone/anyone throwing some light onto this. i can read what the codes are supposed to mean, but what do they ACTUALLY MEAN to someone not fluent in fault-code-language??
