    Turning off EM light

    Recently changed my front pipe, and doing this i obviously had to take the lambda cable out to swap it over, but i was wondering if theres an easy way to turn it off without getting an autoelectrician out?

    Maybe buying one of the tool things they use off ebay? For future use etc

    if youve refitted the lambda correctly then it will switch itself off after a period of miles when its realised all is ok

    if u cant wait then disconnect the battery for half hour - or better still , locate the ECU and unplug the 2 plugs for the same period of time, this way u can still lock the car as normal and power at the head unit and other accessories remains so u dont have to go around resetting things.

    so i presume youve rechecked it?

    or at least done the pedal test to ensure the light actually refers to the lambda sensor in question?

    whereabouts u located? (sick of asking that!!! wish ppl would update their user control panel!! lol) maybe a local member can whack it on the diagnostics for you!
