    Default Feeling pleased with myself :-)

    Worked out how to disable the Lambda sensor on all 1.9 CDTI in software and got rid of the permanent spanner light on the wife's vectra which we are now putting back on the road.

    Resented the idea of paying nearly £100 for a sensor that isn't even needed on a diesel

    The sensor got damaged when bits of turbine and vanes hit it when the turbo failed on the previous owner

    Read ECU flash memory onto PC, locate single-byte switches for Lambda Sensor, change values to zero, write back to ECU. Simples

    The hard part is locating the switches. In EDC16C39 they are always at the same address, but in EDC16C9 (older CDTI) they are at different addresses in every software version!
