Re: Random wire on positive cable, and ETC2 fob battery?

That looks very much like the cruise control (autothrust) pump connector. The natural habitat of the pump is underneath the battery. If this is unplugged, your cruise won't work and will generate fault codes.

Re: I bought a new car today!

I had a Cruze as my rental car last time I was in Canada!! It was utterly hateful. That said, 90% of the reason it was utterly hateful was its woeful autotragic gearbox; and you don't have one! :lol: Good job!

Re: ATF fluid temperature sensor

I dunno man, those that know better than I can confirm it, but I think driving it like that'll kill the box pretty quickly?

Re: ATF fluid temperature sensor

I'd agree totally with Jimmy. Some Lucas stop slip might help a little (it keeps the ATF thicker when hot), but the only fix for this will be to replace those seals.

Re: ATF fluid temperature sensor

I had cause to test mine a while ago:

It wasn't at fault, but that thread should help with how to test it.

Emissions (a happy story!)

Took my 850 for an MOT today.

This car is a 1995, so almost 17 years old. Original exhaust, original CAT, original MAF and a new O2 Sensor a year ago.

Here's how it did:

Some jaws dropped and looks of disbelief at the testing station this morning, seriously!

Re: Another 1997 850R stuck in Winter Mode

You'll need the codes to check of course, but I'd suspect a possible throttle position sensor failure there.
