    If you have low voltage I would not trust any error code to be genuine until a stable stable voltage of ~12.7 or above is achieved.

    what car is it and who told you it was error 0209 as it's rather unusual if it's a stock OBD2 code.

    and "misfunctioning solenoid that measures the exhaust fumes"

    A solenoid is an actuator , not a sensor. If that was their exact words then they don't know what they are talking about.

    Because they don't have test data, and no car apart from possibly volvo had ISOfix.

    A basic Britax or similar seat should fit any car ( which is a bonus if you need to put it in a family/friends car ) Don't get sucked into the Designer brands.

    There pretty much standard and just use the belts to secure a fit... I got mine from kiddie care (there own brand) and it's perfect in any car (good from new born until 4). When he was younger though we used a Graco all in one as it offered a better seating position and a snugger fit, as well as allowing us to move from pram to car without waking him up. The graco also came with a base to leave in the car which made the transfer easier.

    Sorry @twin--turbo the solenoid was me trying to be smart (they didnt tell me what it did just the they replaced it as the error code came from the emission unit, i put 2 and 2 together to make 5)..

    I'm getting these errorcodes from the dash unit, as I havent got a self tester (although that and a haynes manual are on the christmas list)

    P.S It's a 53 plate Mondeo ST with fsh and 43k on the clock so shouldn't be having any major issues

    I've seen lots of electrical faults get posted this past month on the Pug forum I frequent, just about all of them have been battery related, coinciding with the colder damp weather.

    It might only have 43k and FSH but it's still almost ten years old and parts wear by age as well as mileage.

    No it's the ST220, 3ltr petrol. It's got no problems starting and none of the electrics are showing signs of the battery being low will have to see what the mechanics say but I think something else might be at play.

    Anyway checked her in to the garage today so will see what they say, best case is what they did before was wrong and they'll do all the new work for free or reduced cost..

    I would not trust the DASH codes.

    Sounds like they probably replaced the EPT (or equiv).

    NVM (EEPROM) level (Er----) - this (e.g. Er0206) is often mistakenly assumed to be an error code!
