    Default Orange light of Engine death......or not?

    Hi all

    The engine warning light just came up on my siggy. Does anyone out there in Vectra/Siggy land know how much can I expect to pay just for Vauxhall to diagnose?

    Any comments are always appreciated.

    Hi Keith, you can get the fault code by doing the pedal test then looking up on here and the code number. I think there is a how2 on the pedal test- could save you some dough rather than putting it straight into garage. HTH.

    Can you not just call out the AA?

    My engine light came on, on the way down to Bristol and the AA people came to where we were stopping and told me it was IP0414 some sensor thing had broken.

    Not to sure you can do the peddle test on the 2.0t but its worth a go. Dealer will charge you about 50 quid for plugging it in. Not much goes wrong with your engine so might be worth buying a cheap code reader off the bay. Have you tried reseting it to see if it was just a glitch?

    If you pay for the service get the most out of them =] its £50 that could be put towards fixing it.

    Hope its nothing too major, best get back to work now.

    Buy a code reader from LMF for £90 then you will never need to use the stealers again and you will also be able to reset EML once you have the code
