This happened on my eco, although the code said something else i knew it was related to the idle valve! i to changed the valve to no avail, its only when i took the tb off and cleaned that out to then put it back together with new sealant paste the em went out and the car ideled corect too!!! (3 bottle of empty stella):beer: :)

the ecu has been reset and the light is still there the engine has to be really hot for it to go out the cooling fan has kicked in about twice before it goes out.

the throttle body is spotless i have fitted a 3.0 carlton tb to it i may have to check to make sure it has sealed properly perhaps i have an air leak but then i would notice that i do get a hissing noise if i pull my idle valve about a bit when it is running. but all of my hoses are ok.

sod it im gonna drink my :beer:

i have done all the tests possible "thanks rodger:D " and i had reverted back to my old idle control valve with a bloody good clean out with all sorts of cleaners and then put a little grease inside the bits and bobs and now the lights gone out :)
