Hi,

My brother in law has an Adam with the basic 1.2 engine, but the engine management light has came on.

I've checked for the fault & got the OBD ll code P2271, but I'm not exactly sure what it's for, as it shows as either an O2 Sensor, or something causing it to run rich.

He doesn't use the car much, not even done 4500 miles, but he said it's not getting good mpg, so bad he said doing 65 mph motorway driving is not even getting 30mpg.

We know it's still under warranty, but I know my local dealer normally says if it's not a warranty part there's a £99 charge, just for the diagnostic test.

So can someone possibly tell me what this code is actually for.

Many thanks

Thanks for the link, I'll pass it on to my brother-in-law & I'm sure this will help get him sorted.

Your help is much appreciated.👍

If it's still under warranty, take it in and play hell. I can't see a Lambda sensor not being a warranty job.

After I was given the link, by andy_v I had a good look & did tell my brother in law to get it booked in under warranty, so I think it's going in next week.

Thank you for your reply, it is much appreciated.👍
