its just the lambda sensor reading too rich due to the increased air flow

it happens more in the winter as the air is colder & denser therefore you get even more going in

when the light comes on just switch your ignition on & off to clear it

use to happen all the time on mine

Gambit - the light doesn't come on straight away. it takes a couple of mintues before it comes on. once it has come on and i turn my ingnition on and off it goes away but come back on after a few mintues.

a simple solution for the paper clip test

all you need to do is see if the two connects listed in the top buzz article are able to be bridged in your car, if they cant then you can't read it

After 99 it dont work.
Mines a 98 sport and it works ok.
Just connect pins 5+6


The 97 to 99 cars give out 4 digit codes instead of the 2 digit ones.
A full list is available at On Board Diagnostics
