    Service Vehicle soon !!!

    Forum Key Rings
    HELLO EVERYONE ,

    Firstly Iíd like to say thanks for having me Iím new .. I suffer with dyslexia So my punctuation and spelling might be abit off so apologies in advance.

    I serviced my 2010 Insignia @ 78000 just last mouth in fact .

    Just before I serviced it I was getting a service vehicle soon light displayed on the dash . Iím having a problem occasionally when giving it big bananas it goes into a limp mode and losses power then it picks up !!

    My service I changed oil all the filters glow plugs so in my eyes it had a good amount done . I do about 26k a year driving so I make sure itís well looked after .

    I was getting frustrated with the service vehicle soon light coming on so I bought a ďAutel MaxiDiag Elite MD802 Full System OBD2 Scanner Code Reader with Live Data, Oil Service Reset, EPB Multifunctional Scan ToolĒ as I would be doing the rear brakes soon I though best have someone that was bit better than the DIY job .

    Plugged it in and on the occasion when I get the loss in power it stores a code

    I get this code p2282 mass air flow sensor performance.

    I looked into what it could be at if people said inter cooler pipe . The inter cooler pipe isnít split I had removed it and inspected it .. the was a film of oil on the pipe which I have clean and Iím monitoring.

    Also Iím getting glow plug 3/4 low voltage.. I have replaced the glow plug mod with a genuine Vauxhall part . Still Iím getting the code come up ..

    Sorry if Iím waffling Iím not a mechanic just at a loss and help or suggestions welcome ..

    Paul

    Need to test the glowplugs with a multimeter to see what reading you get----just because they are new don't mean that one could be faulty--the resistance should all be the same---has yours got the sensor on them---don't need a reader to do the rear brake pads/just make sure that the handbrake is released before turning ignition off---Dave

    can I ask why you need a code reader to do your rear brakes ?

    I Had a citron C4 grand Picasso automatic which you had to have a reader to release the back brakes. So I presumed because my car also had a Electric handbrake that it would be the same .. not remembering the countless times I have left the bike off and the car has started to roll 🙄😊

    No you don't need it for insignia,,just let handbrake off,before winding pistons in,and replacing pads,,,pump up footbrake fully,before applying handbrake again
