Re: Fault finding

I am guessing the second fault could well be a glow plug gone and would need to be replaced. On my last car I had one glow plug gone, but the car still started so left it. However on the previous car to that, one faulty glow plug and the car would not start for ages, had to keep cranking the engine ...

If you have the clock type, do you have two similar, if so, one is speed limiter, the other is cruise control on button.

Could also use velcro, could then easily remove the radio when leaving the car.

Re: Orange / Amber Check Engine Light

If its a diesel you are immediately in the exhaust system ...commonly. DPF/Turbo...related piping/valves/sensors I would dispute that, sorry. There are also a number of things on the fuel system that can cause the eml to come on including injectors, maf sensors etc. You definitely need a code reader.

Re: OBD Readers

I have used and am still using an iCarsoft i810, they make specific readers for various car manufacturers. Not cheap but imo well worth the money.

Re: Looking for a bit of help with the Nissan towbar electrics.

Apparently it can be resolved with dedicated wiring kit, but I have no knowledge of that on a Nissan, but I know it works on a Mercedes. The dedicated wiring disables reversing buzzers, is needed if want the car to tell you if your lights are working etc.

Re: Orange / Amber Check Engine Light

You will definitely need the codes read, otherwise it's a pure guess, and you could end up throwing a lot of money at it.

Re: Failed fuel injector

I put injector cleaner in the tank and it's been OK since. Drove over 260 miles home yesterday. There was one blip when the red engine management light and anti-skid lights came on, but after a few second the engine light went off. I stopped the car and restarted it, and the anti skid thing stayed ...
