run with code 33 fault
« on: May 21, 2022, 10:03 AM »
Hi, 650 9 month old under 1,000 miles and engine fault light is on.
I looked on youtube and found that if i press the left button light on dash the fault code appears, so did that and code is 33, which is the o2 sensor.

The question i have is, can i run it till i get it in to the shop?

I've got a faulty o2 sensor, but they're so expensive to replace. I put on a 10 eliminator plug which clears the fault light, been running with it since last year and aside from what I feel is a slight drop in mpg I've not noticed any other negatives? no change in amount of soot at the tailpipe for sure. Passed MOT without issue as well.

It will be fine.
The ECU will likely run rich to account for the sensor data loss.

Davie.  It will go off of it's own free will. Don't worry, no harm is being done. My 019 did it a couple of times, it went out in it's own time.
What would you rather be, or a wasp?
