Hi guys,
I recently had my Engine Check Light come
on and I got it checked out.

The mechanic said that my break switch was not working according to his computer (i saw it), but my break lights were still functioning. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
The engine light then went off for a few days but it has come back on again.

My break lights are still working, so should i suspect that my OBD sensor is malfunctioning - how would I know which one?

I know that the obd sensors are warrentied for 8 years or 130000 Km.

Re: Engine Check light - is my OBD malfunctioning (bluebora20v)

Have you had the same prob?
I surely do not want to spend 60 bucks at the dealer ship to simply get a diagnostic check !!!!!!!!

The light is off again so i am happy, but hope nothing else is serious - i love my car, but do not like redeculious expenses

Thanks for your reply.

Well I've had issues with the brake sensor like everybody else, but not your exact problem. I wouldn't doubt that the sensor is malfunctioning just because your lights still work though. There is also a recall on the hazard switch which cause some electrical gremlins but that is prob not related.
