    confused Car n Spanner light - Bite the bullet

    Hi

    Sorry i know there are countless threads on this but i've given up trying to find out whats causing it, tried cleaning EGR and boost valve, changed boost pipes, done air box mod, allsorts and nothing has made any significant improvements, the only thing that made a noticeable difference is when i blanked the EGR n the car n spanner light swapped for the engine management light, so...

    do i really have to go to vx to find out what code is being thrown up and spend £45? is the tech 2 thingy the only thing that can read these car n spanner light codes? could a normal garage or mobile mechanic do it? whats this OpCom thing ive read about?

    Cheers
    Dan

    it doesn't work on most vehicles. search ebay and get an OBDII reader, then search for the code on here.

    That's an illegal copy so we cannot talk about it on here.
