Hi all.\nMy 2000 V70 2.5D (new shape car, older 'Audi' engine) has had a nasty\nlight show up on the dashboard. The manual says that it means there is\na fault with the Emission control system, and should be driven to a\ndealer for diagnosis.\nIn my mind, the symbol shown may as well be a £ (or $) sign, as I'm\nsure it's going to cost me!\nAnyway, this car doesn't have a lambda sensor in the CAT, so that's\nthe first idea ruled out. My dealer says it may be the air pump,\n(which operates the turbo wastegate or EGR or something by the looks\nof it) but can't tell me for sure without charging for a diagnosis!\nThere is a lot more emission control equipment on this car when\ncompared with my previous one (old shape V70, with same engine in).\nPerhaps someone can tell me a little more about how the system works,\nor even tell me what is likely to be wrong.\nThe car drives fine, doesn't smoke, and doesn't use any more fuel in\nthis condition.\nI have tried Draper, Sealey, and Gunsons for diagnostic tools, but\nthey do every car except mine. My car does have the OBDII socket under\nthe dash, near the bonnet catch. Can someone point me to a suitable\ncode reader please? !!\nMany thanks.\nP.S I have already repaired the door-handle linkage on my rear doors.\nApparently this is something which has been re-designed on the 2005\nrevamped model. Why couldn't they just keep the designs used on the\nolder V70. they were bullet proof. The build quality is appalling on\nthis car when compared to my old one.\nContact me at: joelandyman <at> postmaster.co.uk or phone/text 07887\n694427 from the UK. I am based in Peterborough, and would consider\ntravelling to someone who has a code reader.\nCheers.\nJoe.
