    Default oil light then spanner light

    2004 1.9 cdti,
    on way into work the oil light popped up so i stuck just under half a ltr in and the light was off
    then just as i get to work after 8 more miles the spanner and car light popped up

    question is is there a reason why this may have happened or am i better off popping into a garage to get it ecu read?

    or is it worth taking the battery off for 15 mins and seeing what happens LOL

    Spanner and car light is a fault. Maybe worth getting it read but its up to you. If you start the car again and it does not stay on then fingers crossed it will be ok
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    seems to turn on and off so going to let it cool down a bit top the oil to correct level
    then re set the ecu and see what happens from there

    right
    after turning off it would stay off for 5/10 mins then come on again so took it to be read and low and behold its showing no fault even tho the car and spanner is on screen so they have cleared it and told me if it apperars again to pop back

    anyone else had this happen?
    car drives fine as it alwats has so im lost

    who cleared it? was it done by a Vx garage with Tech2? if not a Tech2 then their reader may not have been able to read the trouble code.

    was a local garage
    he did say that there was no fault code on the reader so as per plasma the reader was no good that was being used

    as on way home it popped up again

    so i will be wise to take to vx as its booked for tomorow at a nice price of £70.50 just to tell me the fault

    try and blag 'trade club' on it..that will only bring it down to £102 +V thou...

    when you go to fit the new one, use a proper lambda sensor socket...saves rounding it off as it will be in tight..

    remove the cars undertray and follow the exhaust back.. you'll soon see it..
