    Default A new one on me

    A mate of mine has just bought a Vectra 2.2dti. and is so far very pleased with it, He was telling me that the last two days he has gone past a speed camera below the speed limit, and on the road are three pairs of those rubber tubes going across the road, like the ones that count the amount of traffic, each time he goes over them the spanner warning light comes on, but if he turns the ignition off the spanner light goes out, this has happened each time he goes over these "rubber tubes" the light does not come on other than as just mentioned, I said that sounds more than coincidence, but have no idea why it happens, has anyone come across this before...sounds weird to me.

    Thats a New one, as far as I can remember they Emit an Ultrasonic Pulse to ascertain wether or not there is a car above them, maybe this somehow messing with a sensor in the engine, im not entirely sure to be quite honest with you, I've never experienced it, and I dont know anyone else that has.

    Sounds like a bout of 2.2 DTitis. It seems to round now and then. I'm up in the West Mids on Sunday, where are they, I'll avoid them!!

    I heard they were family planning probes, monitoring sperm count of drivers.... The reason he gets a spanner is cos he needs his nuts tightening...
