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

Sounds like gloplugs to me from my TD experience. Certainly worth replacing them and the leak-off pipes before spending serious money on injectors/fuel pumps etc. :y

No Dave not gone over to the dark side-well not completelyanyway[I do have a V70 as well as the Elite though]-I was there doing the same thing he was,picking up parts for someone else :y No gearbox under his arm Opti but he did rock up in a Transit van!Some TV "celebrities" can come across on TV as everyones bestest mate where in real life they're obnoxious little twerps hung up on their own "celebrity",not so with Guy Martin what you see on telly is what you get face to face-in my limited experience of meeting him :y

I had the privilege of meeting Johnny Johnson, the last Dambuster, at a Squadron dinner at the RAF Club last weekend, a lovely man, with a great sense of humour, clearly bemused by his own celebrity. :y

Sadly, (I was at boarding school at Brackley) I shall miss this, as we are off on holiday early AM on the 7th, and I have reached an age when departure preparations are somewhat prolonged. :(
The school is still there :)

Yes, I occasionally visit for OB's day in November. :y

I would clean the selector switch before swapping anything else. Related codes may steer you in the wrong direction. :y
