    Default Emissions dash light still on

    Hi gents, I've just cleaned and replaced the EGR valve and the light i had on the dash is still on.
    Is there a manual reset for it or do i have to take it back to the stealers?

    Cheers,

    Ed

    Disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes should clear it, if not it will go off of its own accord sure it can take up to ten days though. Or you can also buy a cheap code reader off ebay and reset it via the OBD socket under the ashtray.

    Give it a day or so it will clear. If it doesn't, check the connections again. When i've unplugged mine and plugged it back in it's taken a couple of days driving to work for it to go out.

    I'd read the codes and find out why it's on - it could be nothing to do with the EGR valve. If you've got a laptop, you can pick up a cheap USB reader for around £10.

    make sure you have cleaned it out properly if the light still stays on



    EGR valve on the Solenoid side got stuck and needed cleaning out once cleaned and put back togeather running like a dream. save yourself some money and give the How 2 a try. The way I look at it if it's broken anyway and needs changing you might as well try and fix it and save yourself some money...

    have a look at this
