Hi people

I recently brought a 2L Astra SRI 1999, It was sold to me with the Engine Management Light on so i got it cheep ish.

The acceleration wasnt great and wouldnt go past 4500 rpm

Took it to an Auto Electrics garage to have the fault codes read and it came back with
Faulty Camshaft Sensor and
Faulty Throttle Position Sensor (sorry dnt have the codes with me)

So got new Sensors today and fitted them, but the problem is still there.
it accelerates a bit better but still limited to 4500 rpm and the ECU light is still on.

Should the ECU automaticly reset itself (ECU light turn off) knowing that the problems have been fixed, or do i have to get it reset, thus taking the 4500rpm limit off?

If not then it looks like the ECU is faulty, Yeah?

Thanks


edit... I have also checked the wiring of both components from connectors through to ECU and there is no breaks in the wireing

Ok thanks m8, will disconnect the battery overnight and see if that works.

Its just that i had a calibra C20XE, and whenever that had a fault, the ECU would automaticly reset itself once the duff parts had been changed. Werent sure if this car should do the same
