My CPS Failure - the Truth revealed.

At last I can reveal the truth about my pesky CPS fault :shock: :o :( As you may recall, I parked the car up running beautifully, then a fortnight later it would not start or even spark. The engine light was solid on and though there were codes (15 and 17) relating to exhaust gas, nothing that shoul...

Re: Power steering cooling pipe

If you did decide to replace it, I know a small company who would be able to make a new one for you. He'd need to reuse the fittings, and have the old pipe as a pattern.

Re: Airbag code 32

Clock spring indeed still has continuity. Guess I found the safing sensor too (image below), but couldn't get the connectors off, so I just cleaned the dust off on top :evil:.
