    Anyone with VAGCOM in Oxfordshire??

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone has a diagnostics kit around oxford my emmisions light has come on, i am pretty sure it will be because of my decat but just need a check and don't want to pay a stupid garage price of £50+
    Today would be good if not can be a weekend.

    thanks
    :y:

    Take a look in the vcds section. There is a vcds users map within that section, so there may be a user near you. Good luck.

    You could buy cable from user NHN on here. Worthwhile investment.

    Fault code cleared and it hasn't come back on since..but the fault code as follows:

    P0136 O2 Sensor circuit malfunction (bank1 sensor2) so this is the sensor after the cat, now

    sensor 1 reads 0.43V-0.4350V
    sensor 2 reads 0 V

    is that a fault with the sensor or is it because of the decat?
