    Default Yellow Engine Light - Failed MoT

    Just a quick heads up chaps.

    If your Engine Warning light is lit when you take your car for its MoT, it will fail.

    No ifs, no buts, fail. So, if a mechanic fixes a problem but doesn't clear down your codes then you're looking at a fail.

    I was told this back in November. Warning light was for an o2 sensor. Hope the manufacturers take note that warning should be stored and retrieved a service times.

    Your Avatar is yellow. Explains a lot.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Apparently racing slicks and bonnet exit exhaust is also an MOT failure.

    Just as a matter of interest, who are you labelling "racist"?

    Lest the word lose its real impact, would it not perhaps be better to reserve it for when it is truly needed?
