    Vauxhall Corsa Emissions Light

    Vauxhall Corsa Emissions Light 15th Sep 18 at 4:27 PM
    The yellow engine light has just come on on my Corsa (2011)
    Apparently it is emission control system fault- emission limits exceeded

    I had it MOT in Feb, all OK and I also had it serviced in August.

    Any ideas as to what it can be?

    The engine light can come on for many reasons. You need proper diagnosis.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    I presume it would have to be hooked up to the computer. I have to take to main dealer tomorrow because of a handbrake recall.
    Just a guess, but I presume they would charge more to do this?

    Having problems with the emu light on my 13 year old Jazz coming on intermittently. As it happened it was off when recently MOT'd but I noticed that CO emissions had increased from usual 0.05 percent to 0.15 whilst lamda had gone from 1.0 to 1.03 so it looks as if an oxygen sensor is going defective. Garage has confirmed this with OBD.

    Hole in the exhaust or as reeac says oxygen sensor.

    Don't buy those dice they do not work on Corsa's. With the Corsa the problem is the PBWAS.

    Get a code reader, they are around 11 on eBay, probably around 20 at a motorfactors.
