Does the EML light go off after so many starts if fault no longer exists? Or am I thinking of other codes. :-\ :-\ :-\

A cheap BT Dongle off the Bay, couple of quid, and the free version of "ScanMyOpel" App off the PlayStore will be good enough to sort your codes out.

As you know Chris, I am a techno numpty, so you are speaking in tongues. ;D ;D ;D

I know TB will hate it, but what do we think of this one?

I wonder how long it takes to come from Nifeng Liu B1123-1126, Yousong Technology Building 11F,Donghuan First Road, 518000 Shenzhen? :-\ :-\ :-\

At that price its worth a punt. Doesn't say if it will reset codes though. As Nick suggests, one that will read live data is best. :y

Then something like THIS would be a good start, although one that reads live data would be better.

Thanks Nick, I agree, and would prefer one that does live data. Can you recommend one? :y

Can it reset codes via the app as well?


They do everything a dedicated OBD scantool does; they're just a bit fiddlier to use. That's OK if you don't use it very often, and it takes up very little space in the glovebox

Unfortunately I have an iPhone, which appears to be incompatible with these. :(

Unfortunately I have no idea how much a scantool can do, but I will assume it will reset codes.

Thanks :y

Pedal trick doesn't work for some reason. Spanner light remains on. IIRC I have used it in the past, but I may be confusing it with the TD. Paperclip doesn't appear any use as no connectors in 2 & 6 of OBD socket. :(

Is it the spanner light that is on, or the EML as in your first post?

Its the EML light on when running. Spanner light will not flash for pedal trick, stays on. :y

Has anyone got a generic code reader that will reset codes they can recommend for an Omega 3.2? If so please PM me the name. :y
I am surprised that no-one has come up with a reason that may have brought the light on during the MOT. I am not a great fan of such coincidences. :-\
Ahem... They probably left it idling for an extended period.

Pedal trick will tell what the car thinks the cause was :y

Just off to do that. It can't have idled for long, it only took 20 minutes to do the MOT!

3.2 is OBD compliant, so any cheap device ought to do what you want. Easily doable for under 20.

In the 9 years I've owned the 3.2, I've never had the EM light on. Took it in with no light on for its MOT today, after giving it an Italian tune-up. It passed with one advisory, EM light on >:(. What did they do? WOT didn't bring it on for me. >:( >:( >:(
you should count yourself very lucky

should have been a fail  :o

I guess the NT has not read the MOT manual for a year or so  ;D

Advice was that its not a fail for this age of vehicle. ??? ??? ???

If you are in the RWB area either before 12 tomorrow, or after 3 from Tuesday to Friday next week I can stick the code reader on for you, away in the tin tent otherwise :)

Ta, it will have to be next week. Thanks Nige, I'll be in touch. Meantime can someone PM me with a cheapo reader that will reset codes please? :y
