    Default EGR Valve/engine management light

    Hi,
    My engine management light has been stuck on for a couple of months, vauxhall dealer told me it was due to the egr valve. they wanted 180 quid to fix it so I did it myself this morning. Car seems to be running fine but the engine management light is still on.

    Should it go off automatically once the fault is fixed or do i need to do something to make the light go off?

    Thanks.

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    Wait after 20 engine starts m8 (don't do them in succession m8 you will knacker the battery etc). It may actually go out after 50 miles of it's own accord as the ECU will learn there is EGR flow now.

    you might save£175 by cleaning your exisiting egr

    whilst your doing that

    clean the boost sensor and throttle body

    follow the how 2's

    this should prevent the light from reappearing

    Thanks Gazza, I'll see what happens. If it doesn't go off after that then I'll go back to my local dealer again.

    Cheers too mparks, I didn't clean my old one as i thought I'd end up ruining it and having to buy a new one anyway, so just opted for the new one.
