well, the lights come back on now, 400 miles later, so another email to sort this out if its the same codes

also, the "change oil soon" light has come on, 900 miles after they have supposed to have serviced it before i collected it!

was wondering, could they have

a) used the wrong oil. or

b) never changed the oil filter?

or should i start a thread in general area to see if i can target a larger number of chevvy owners?

another theory, again might be asked in general chat........

if when they serviced it, it didnt have the "change oil sson" can that just crop up when its mileage triggered? or does itanalyse the oil?

it probably was not reset, but did they change the oil/filter or are the failed regenerations, he fault codes you mentioned before causing too much fuel to be dumped into the sump, which will trigger the change oil light!

Go and take the car back to where you bought it asap and let them deal with it.

Tempted but it's a 150 mile away, never knew that it could do that, strangely though, after a 60 mile cross country trip (where I am at the minute) the MIL light has gone off now on it's own accord, will report back later when I'm home to let you know if


I have a code reader on the way, thought it best to have one somehow, lolEdited by: bidderman1969
