    Default cant get eml light off

    hi guys any help on this would be very much appreciated, ive got a vectra c 2003 sxi, z18xe, eml light has been coming on and off for some time, its been on constant now for around 3mths, had a new maf fitted 12mths ago, had new air filter, and new plugs all within the last 3mths, a week ago the car started to run really rough on tick over, sounds like it missing, and the exhaust has got a pop pop pop pop, noise coming from it, fitted a new front lambda sensor saturday, hasn't made any difference, took it to a good local garage, they spent two hours working on it, (not changing parts) just with computer, cleaned out throttle body, got rid of most ov the code, but two keep popping up, sorry forgot to write them dwn, mechanic told me the two codes that keep popping up, he has checked on the car and all is working as it should be, and cant understand why they keep popping up, has adviced me to go to a garage where they have a tech 2 machine, or go to the dreaded vauxhall dealer, as soon as someone mentions vauxhall dealer i see the pounds leaving my wallet!! ive since done a pedal test and got the following codes 0100, 0130, 0135, 0170 any help or advice, thanks guys craig

    stick your foot on brake and acc pedals, turn keys to position 2, your eml light should start to flash out a 4 digit code (1 flash for 1, 2 for 2, upto 10 for 0, then put the codes up on here to narrow it down

    edit: scrap that, only half your post loaded for me lol

    check 10amp fuse 15a under the bonnet fuse box

    100 is the MAf, 130 and 135 are the O2 sensors, and the 170 is fuel trim

    Did you replace the MAF with an aftermarket one or a Bosch one.

    I quickly googled p0170 vauxhall and a few searches found that aftermarket ones still gave this fault, replacing with a bosch one solved it.
