Either the spanner light or engine light will leave a code in the engine ECU on a 3.2.  The pedal trick *WILL* work.

Ensure throttle is absolutely fully down, and brake is down enough to activate both brake pedal switches.


And OBDII reader can read 3.2 engine (only). I personally use an Autel one, but others available.  Generally not a fan of the laptop/phone based ones, mostly because they are awkward/shite/limited.

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.

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

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

about 20minutes. Unless you live in Brackley. Then they'll send you a rubber chicken in time for the August bank holiday festivities......

the EML goes out on it's own if the fault is "not present" but stores the code for about 20 ignition cycles on most vauxhalls in my experience .

so if your light remains on when driving, i'd say you have a fault
no one local with a code reader ?

Thanks Dave, Entwood has kindly offered, and lives nearby, but I do need to get one of my own.
As I only use the Omega on days such as today, it will take time for 20 starts.  :y :y :y

Its a chinky knock off. Will likely be OK, though might not last the warranty period.  Looks like that cant do live data.

I'd spend a little more on a genuine one from a real UK shop personally.
