    Hey guys just need a little more help last night I phoned euro car parts and motoserv to cross reference the part numbers euros said the nkg 0449 was the one for mine and motoserv said that 0129'was the one in my car and is the right part but he said that he would give me a fuel parts lambda and told mento try that And this is what happened

    The nkg lambda was recording a fault of no activity then when I put the fuel parts one in it had this heater malfunction which would not clear but this came up after the car had been driven for around 10mins then abou 20 mins later had this fault code signal too low but I think that's coming up due to the lambda not being able to heat up and go into a closed loop now would I be right in thinking that the lambda still ain't right for my car and that I should go with the o.e one

    I mean one lambda came up with one fault but not the other and the othe lambda has come up with the opposite fault any ideas guys would be great. Thanks

    I presume the original sensor was a 0129, and now you've fitted some other sensor?

    Perhaps the 0129 was simply faulty, and the new replacement unit is wrong?

    Hey guys I thought I would post this as it could help some one else in the same situation I had a chap come out to my car on Monday to have a look at her to see what he could fine and found that the maf sensor was not doing it's Job and as it wasn't doing it's job it was telling the ecu that hardly any air was going into the engine. So the ecu then compensates this by making the fuel extremely lean just enough so the car can run due to this the lambda sensor couldn't pic anything up as it was running so lean so that's why I got the fault code of no activity lol. Changed the maf sensor for an o.e one and the lambda again o.e and now she is purring with no codes wicked I would just like to thank every one for there help and wish you all a merry Xmas and a good new year cheers guys. :rock::cold:
