Hi iv checked the wiring back to the ecu plug and it's all working fine ,the o2 sensors a Bosch (recommended for this car )one which I replaced about 18 months ago ,does the sensor have to be the exact one ie GM for it to work correctly  thanks

The sensors do not have to be original equipment but of reputable quality which Bosch are.

The only other thing to check is if there are exhaust leaks that are causing the sensors to run high on Lambda.
Put a rag over the exhaust pipe with the engine running (outside in fresh air of course) and listen for any hissing which would indicate an air leak

Hi immobiliser fault says transponder not recognise, so tried the other two keys but same fault so cancelled the keys and reprgramed them which op com said it was successful, car still won't start and coming up with transponder not recognise, so ordered a set ECU ,immobiliser, and two transponder chips all matching, so see if that works and I'll let you know thanks for your help

Hi replaced ECU ,immobiliser and transponders ,car now running fine but eml light keeps coming on just like before ,so was thinking can I bypass the post cat o2 sensor and fool the ecu to thinking it's ok? What do you think  regards steve
