Okay Keith if the shop could not find anything then do the following maybe we can find out what is Up.

Do the following :


Get inside your vehicle a firmly place yourself in your seat. Once in, press both the accelerate and brake pedal together


With both pedals pressed, put your key in the ignition and turn it to position 2, which is the position that switches all auxilary heating on but not the engine


Once done, the spanner light will start flashing

if it flashes 10 times it means the number is '0' and any other flashes corresponds to a number with a pause between each number

for example code P0110
the light will flash ten times then pause (2sec Or 1 not sure) flash once, (2sec pause) flash once, (2 sec pause) then flash ten times

if you have more than one code it will stop for a break between each code

however if you don’t have any code stored it will start Flashing and keeps on flashing until you release the pedals.

Then get back to me with the codes .
