    Default Eng amber Light, no start

    Hi there, I have 1.8 2004 Vectra estate...116000K
    Hi have read some of the posts about amber eng mngmt light. The light came on steady and I finished my trip home. Next day did a short trip.. Still on but car seemed fine. Next day no engine start - turns over + fuel in manifold. Replaced front lamda sensor - still no start.
    any ideas... the car has not missed a beat in since new, until now.
    Cheers

    it could be lots of things as ive found out. ive lost count how many times mine has come on and its been something different each time. you dont need to go to vx to have it read, any decent garage should be able to read the code.

    I think thats good advice. I tried a universal Lamda sensor... light still on, but now cars exhaust puts out white puffy clouds?? ... seems to run ok though!
    I have booked it in at a recommended garage

    read the code yourself and try to sort it yourself!
    search for it and find the method. its very easy to do.
