    Exclamation A few Problems need Diagnostic

    Hi

    I have a few issues with my vectra 06 sri 150s and need to plug into a diagnostic tool, before i buy one from ebay i was wondering if anyone near Camberley in Surrey has one i could plug in quickly for a read out of error codes.
    I would be very gratefull if anyone wouldnt mind

    The problem i have is lack of power below 2k revs, i have the third injector changed, i have cleaned the turbo sensor, i did have the swirl valve control rod hanging off, this is now back on and holding next it has to be the egr valve clean.

    So please if anyone can help please get in touch

    you could also try the brake pedal method to read the codes yourself

    works on most cars and then you could read the codes at home

    Thanks to STE !!

    The porcedure is simple and is done from the drivers seat, with NO equipment.


    Get in
    Press and hold both brake and accelerator pedals to the limit of their respective travels
    Turn ignition key to Position 2, ie dash lights on
    Release accelerator pedal
    Re-depress accelerator pedal to the floor
    Turn off ignition
    Turn on ignition to position 2
    The engine symbol on the dash will then begin to blink
    There will be a sequence of flashes, separated by small pauses between numbers and a longer pause between separate fault codes.
    The number of flashes needs to be counted and thus the 4 digit fault code can be determined.

    EG, if the flash count goes as such
    10 flashes
    small pause
    1 flash
    small pause
    1 flash
    small pause
    10 flashes

    Longer pause

    10 flashes
    small pause
    1 flash
    small pause
    10 flashes
    small pause
    10 flashes



    Then there are 2 fault codes recorded and they are
    0110 (ie 10,1,1,10 flash sequence)
    and
    0100 (ie 10,1,10,10 flash sequence)
