Re: Engine Management code - p0400 ( egr solenoid valve)

I think I had that code before, was def an egr valve issue and the fix is to take the valve out and clean it with brake calibre cleaner (think it was) and mine is still going strong a year later. If you want to replace it the part was £100-200 if memory serves correct... Excellent, will give it a t...

Re: Megane 2 Key Card Fault (PCF7947AT)

If the chip is damaged, then it is time for a new card... It's a transponder chip, the one that must be coded to the car. I thought that might be the case but wouldn't that mean that I would be unable to start the car? I think that the chip itself still functions but the 2 pins are central locking ...

Re: Air Flow Meter made with resistors, seems subpar?

I don't think he was hoping for it to be a better part as such or perform better than the original part, just better than the one that had broke... Im always wary when buying non original Manafacture parts when it comes to electronics. Breaks and inanimate objects are more often than not fine, but ...

Re: Air Flow Meter made with resistors, seems subpar?

jamhops, Let's start wit the beginning. What makes you think that the aftermarket sensor is better? Even if it is, then re-programming the ECU may be required, which is not trivial. If you want to investigate the issue, then look at the live OBD plots. Otherwise, just use the OEM part. I dont think...

Re: Air Flow Meter made with resistors, seems subpar?

What engine, and what are you expecting to achieve? Depending on the design of said meter, a resistor will simply supply a different current/voltage to the ECU. The parts probably cost less than a penny a piece. I haven't consulted the manuals, but I would imagine that an air flow meter would incor...

Air Flow Meter made with resistors, seems subpar?

I bought a third party air flow meter which upon looking in the tube is made up of 2 resistors, (they have there colour code on etc) these seem sub par items as I cant see this functioning correctly? I also fell upon testing it for a few days it isnt having the expected effect on my mpg as the worki...

I have an elm327 thats what annoyed me so much as i had done what they did... i use torque on android but i need something that reads out more data. With regards to the rest thinl I checked all of that but will check again later/tomorrow but the turbo does seem to be ok it is general acceleration. A...
