...sometimes it's the simplest things and the fuses are often overlooked. Fingers crossed.

Unfortunatley the engine warning light has reappeared, (not UREA as of yet) when the mechanic looked at it again this time it was saying somehting about a fault with the injector + - connection more electrical than physical hes cleaned the connections but same error, could it be a faulty unit on the injector? or damage on the wire loom some where.

Im tmepted to buy a cheap replacement injector to see if that rules the issue out somehting like this (sorry for the long url) i do believe this is the part number of the injector for my car adblue injector 9802763880

If you are considering this, then I would personally only consider a genuine one.

You can get a genuine one for not much more than that unheard of one you linked to above:

Thanks Marc, so far ive had no UREA warnings Again just the engline warning light still, would a faulty injector electrics cause this? im guessing a engine warnig light is an MOT fail? (not due till December)

I'm pleased about that part of it now working, but unfortunately the EML or Engine Management Light is a Major fail now, so I would get it checked before then to be honest:

I think it used to be only where the EML light was on with another specific warning lamp, but it now seems they have become more draconian....:
Engine malfunction indicator lamp (engine management light or ‘EML’)
Turn on the ignition and check that the engine malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illuminates and then goes off. On some vehicles it will be necessary to start the engine before the MIL goes off.

You need to inspect MIL fitted to:
  • petrol vehicles with 4 or more wheels, not more than 8 passenger seats in addition to the driver’s seat and first used on or after 1 July 2003
  • petrol vehicles with 4 or more wheels, more than 8 passenger seats in addition to the driver’s seat and first used on or after 1 July 2008
  • gas and bi-fuel vehicles with 4 or more wheels, not more than 8 passenger seats in addition to the driver’s seat and first used on or after 1 July 2008
  • Kit cars, amateur built vehicles and American pickups are not required to be fitted with an engine MIL.

(h) Engine MIL inoperative or indicating a malfunction > Major
