    Default P2279

    Got the spanner light on today and read the code p2279,I did a bit of searching there and I know most of the time the code leans towards the EGR valve,solenoid stuck open.Can the code be anything else,(my swirl bar is of the manifold),I have done a diy on the swirl pots sticking them in the open position, are would it be the EGR.I got a new EGR put in last October by the local stealer and there's a years warranty with it.Would just like to know before I go over near them because I'm sure they'll try to tell me it's something else throwing the code up.cheers

    I came across a thread back in October 09, I had posted in it about the P2279 code coming up and this was a week after getting an EGR valve fitted.

    My Vectra C stopped completely last Friday and was impossible to get running. -Had to call for roadside-assistance, and they towed it in to a dealer. It was the EGR thar was stuck open and the error-code was P2279.
    For a short while I could drive the car, but with no power what so ever, but then it came down to now running in idle and very difficult to start again...
    EGR failure!
    Now installed the latest 55xxxxx version, hope all is ok for a long time.
