Management light on
« on: 18 April 2019, 19:07:59 »

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. >:( >:( >:(

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 :)

Esp when they know they were responsible for putting it on in the first place.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

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. :-\

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

Ahem... They probably left it idling for an extended period.

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

Only needs to miss slightly once... Fans kicking in could cause a stutter as the load increases ;)

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. :(
