    I think the only way to know for sure what the spanner is telling you is to have it plugged into Tech2 to read the codes, but could be wrong about that.

    dunno why tbh, its a cdti you have which means the air should be selfpurging when refilling the fuel filter... As Hideous said unfortunately off to the dealer for you

    Poxy computers, hopefully it should be reasonably cheap to get it on Tech2, unless you know somebody who works there..

    hi

    after work picked the girls up for a party and all way home it was random on and off on the dash anyway

    just come home after kiddie party when there i checked the multi plug on top and bottom of the housing for the filter and all was fine all the way home 8/10 miles now im thinking it could be just a connection on the multi plug if this was right would i get the spanner on the dash?


    if its a vx job to find the reason of the spanner whats the going price on the tech 2 plug in

    also how long would it normaly take them as thinking could pop down at lunch time tomorrow

    if they know you're comiing they should be able to do it while you wait, normally for about £40.. it could be the water sensor in the fuel filter playing up, but more likely the plug connection..
