    Default EGR

    The little engine light on the dash has come on so I looked in the manual and it says emissions.

    Is this likely to be an EGR fault and if so can I get rid of the ****** thing? (used to be first thing to do with land rover engines)

    Cheers

    Yes, you can buy blanking plates to remove the EGR out of the equation, but you will get the spanner light, then that will go out and you will be left with the little engine/emissions light.

    EDIT: Just looked, you have an estate, it could be the DPF trying to regen?

    Get the codes read before replacing random stuff.

    Well it went in for MOT todAy as it was booked. Failed oon rear brake imbalance due to one sticking on. Passed emissions and then this evening after leaving the car to warm up the light went off. Drove 70 miles home and still fine.

    I did take off the tuning box last night though but it'd been running fine with that for 10 month. Going to get it on the code reader when we have time but need to sort that caliper out first job
