Where have you got the "V010087" code from?
Is this a fault code?
The standard fault codes start with the letter P/B/U followed by 4-5 numbers. There is no information relating to that code, this can happen when using cheap code readers.
Do you have any warning lights/messages on the dashboard?
This code is for the exhaust pressure sensor which looks like the one in the picture I have attached.
Did halfords actually check the wiring to the sensor? There should be 5v power, ground and a signal which should change with rpm. If they have done their checks and there is a fault on the signal wire then the ECU must be repaired/replaced. Which will be easily £1200+ at a main dealer, an independant garage will be considerably cheaper, probably around £500.
There is a lot of online companies that can repair ECU faults, just type "ecu repairs" in google and there's a whole list of online companies. Repair will obviously be cheaper than replacement, depending on the fault.
