Hi can someone please give me some advise. I recently had my car serviced and everything was fine. I started up my 1998 vectra sri today and the engine light has come on. In the manual it says to take it to a vauxhall dealership but I know they will charge me a fortune for soing nothing. Can anyone give any suggestions as to what i can check etc first to resolve the issue myself or am I going to have to take it to vauxhall?
Thanks Amanda

Got the Codes

Ok the codes are as follows:

0130
0135

Something to do with the exhaust heating up I think. I just recently had a new exhaust fitted when I had the car serviced. Can you help Dynamic Dave so that I can get it back to the garage if need be.

0130 Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen (HEGO) sensor
0135 Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen (HEGO) sensor heater

In laymans terms it's the lambda sensor, which is screwed into the downpipe part of the exhaust system.
