    Default Two problems in Vitz.

    Dear brothers,

    I am facing two problems in my Vitz 2000.

    1. The digital meter is showing "O/D OFF" sign. What's that?

    2. Sometimes meter shows "Check Engine" sign and sometimes it does'nt.

    I've changed the engine oil and also checked all other fluids. Everything is fine.

    Vitz owners please help me out. Thanx in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Hassan Khan.

    I have no idea thats why I asked if there are any other places where u can conduct an OBD on your vitz in Karachi.

    NO idea how much it costs. Maybe someone on the forum who has done it will be able to tell.

    Abt the Check Engine Light, its either the Sensors or most probably your Catalytic Converter is blocked ! Get your CAT removed as it must be blocked as these cars were meant to run on UNLEADED FUEL but here in Pakistan, we have LEADED Fuel so the lead compounds block off the CAT hindering Exhaust flow !

    You dont need a NEW CAT ! You have to remove it ! Even if you buy it (its expensive), you'll have to replace it after a short time (maybe 3000kms).

    So best is to just Remove it and put a straigh de-cat type pipe over there !

    The most important thing for you to do first is to get the "check engine" problem fixed.
