    Default Fault code help!!!

    Hi guys

    I have some fault codes that flashed up on my emision light yesterday and wandered if any of you could help.

    1st code is: P0170

    2nd Code: P0420

    3rd Code: P0704

    Apparently the 1st x2 codes are related, i.e if you eliminate the P0420 then the P0170 would be cured????? Any one know if true?????

    I dont know what these mean but a guy at the garage did a diagnostic check when the car ignition was on and it printed these off.

    He then cleared the fault codes, but WILL THEY RE-APPEA????R and if SO whats the timescale of this happening, I must note the car drives and starts perfectly ok so im abit bewildered.

    Also on the print out it has another code but the guy said his unsure what it means and thinks its nothing to worry about.

    This is exactly what it says on the reciept regarding this 4th code@..................................

    CODE 003: [ ae, 6,14,82j

    Please refer to relevant technical manual........

    I dont know what this means and neither does the guy. Any one???

    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ??????

    He said if the light re-appears he will do another diagnostic check for free and see what codes (if the same) the car/ECU is throwing out to see if it prints the same off again.

    since he cleared the codes and light ive drivin the car since and the light hasnt come back on.

    He said Vauxhalls expecially are really sensitive to faults??? i.e the light flashin up alot but if it starts and drives ok then i need not worry weather its on or not..

    Im debating weather to sell the car now as ive just recently spent £450 as the emision light came on previously and i took it to the steelers (bad idea i know) and then 4 weeks later its back on

    any help would be appreciated.

    Also the car is a 2003 vectra C 1.8 sri 17#" alloys all the mod cons, 115,000 how much would i be looking at getting for it? its very clean

    Not sure about the 003 code but the rest read as follows:

    P0420 Catalyst Efficiency Above Threshold C-31
    P0704 Clutch Switch Input Circuit High Input C-16

    The 003 code may be:

    I hope this helps.
