You really shouldn't be getting a dpf warning the way you drive. How many miles on the pussy?
Since the 460 mile trek back from Scotland? About 10 when the DPF warning came on.  Its now out following a steady drive up the dual carriageway.

Get a domain name.  Will save all these issues in the future.

Very few ISPs offer web space now. Try to remain independent of the ISP...


I'm with Zen, no issues, but not the cheapest. I have "odd" requirements, including OOF, which means moving would be a lot of pain.

Fark, a house full of gas wouldn't have done a TB - it probably would have levelled half the street!
Make me seem like a mere amateur. I only took out my garage, the neighbours garage, and less than 5k damage to my house, and 20k damage to my neighbours. And of course wiped out the car of the nice couple who liked opposite.

And from a small camping gas bottle. Imagine a house full.  That would flatten half of Merseyside :D

TB....has your phone suddenly gone dead ;D ;D ;D
I have phones lines? Here? In Brackley?

You can't consider yourself a yocal here until you accept electricity hasn't been invented, and running water is a luxury.

Broke the infotainment system again.  Bugger.

Now be honest, did you punch the screen for showing you the DPF warning?  ;D

I understand the DPF warning comes about as a result of durdling about, get yer foot down man!
I can claim innocence by starting the DPF warning comes up on the other screen, not the touchscreen. Phew.

As it happens, both things happened at almost the same time, give or take an hour.

Bloody soot chuckers. No, I take that back. Bloody tree huggers.

Is the code 19 still present?
On the earlier V6 if you read the codes with the ignition on but engine off then it will always report code 19. It should clear when the engine is running. Else the sensor is foobar or the connector still has an issue.
Cobblers ;)

A 19 is always a corrupted signal. And is 99.9% of the time the sensor, with that 0.1% being a faulty flywheel or ECU.

With engine not running, you get a 30 (No RPM signal) on a pre 2001 V6

Hmmm, never noticed it as a problem, and never had an issue putting wiring back in cable tray before.

Older cars (94/95) had immobilisers behind glovebox. Post 96 don't.

Engine ECU is paired to immobiliser ECU, and the key transponders are paired to that.

The remote fobs are paired to alarm ECU.


On most cars, lock set consists of:
Drivers lock
Tailgate (on pre 2000 saloons and all estates)
ignition
Glovebox.

Glad you're all sorted, Tony, and not a heart attack in sight:y

Have you heard of the expression 'the kiss of death' ::) ::)

It'll be your fault if he keels over.
He'll definitely keel over if he licks Jaime's arse after a tiffin.  ;D
I did reluctantly shove a Lamb Naga down my neck last night.

I didn't realise how hot it was until my visit to the potty this morning...
