    Default Cdti 150 strange problem

    Hi all. I have had a strange occurrence tonight and was wondering if anybody could help me. I fitted a egr blanking plate to my cdti 150 just after Christmas and my car has ran great. I had the little eml symbol on the dash but i have been used to this so its never bothered me. Tonight i downloaded the latest op-com software and was just messing about with it and I did a dtc read out and cleared all the fault codes,one of which was the egr fault code. Now when i start my car the eml symbol goes out but the spanner light stays on. I have just read the codes again and theres only one which is the lack of egr gases(i think). Can anybody explain this? Have i done something wrong. Car seems to drive fine no smoke or under performance. Any help would be appreciated .

    I think after so many starts the spanner will go and the eml will return.

    That's what happened when I unplugged mine... Although I still get spanner at start up to tell me there a stored code but goes out once engine starts! But that could be something else coz my cars running like a heap of **** and has been for months lol

    Thanks for your quick reply. That does ring a bell actually. I have just had a look through the vectra manual and its referring to water in the diesel filter too! Do you think that could be a possibility? I may go and drain it now and see if it does anything. Thanks Paul
