    Default Emissions Light Help!

    Hello

    We have owned a Vauxhall Vectra (2004 but 53 plate) 2.2 SRI diesel since January. For the last month we've been having issues with the spanner light coming on and the car going into limp mode and then the emissions light coming on.

    We took it to a garage who ran the diagnostics which came up with codes relating to the MAF and atmospheric sensor (I hope that's right, it's my fiance who has been dealing with this). We replaced the parts and the car worked for a day and the same lights have come back on. He took the car back to the garage today and they read the codes and got the same error codes which we replaced the parts for! The mechanic was a bit stumped and is going to speak to a contact at Vauxhall to see what else might be causing the error codes.

    Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions what could be causing this? I'm pretty annoyed that we might just have spent £300 replacing parts which may not have needed to be replaced if there is some other underlying problem which the computer isn't picking up.

    Thanks.

    Might be worth getting them to check EGR function, as this may put the emissions light on IIRC.

    I stress check the function... not just stick bits on at your expense and hope...
