    Okay I have this week purchased a Omega 2.0 16v s(1998) cd.

    I had a new cd/tuner put in on Wednesday - a light has appeared on the dash
    and stays on constantly.

    Its the 4th symbol from the left - according to the manual its the engine
    electronics light - and if it stays illuminated there is a problem.

    Could this be the wiring of the new radio or is it definately an engine

    I dont know if its my imagination but there appears to be a strange smell as

    your time is set wrong!

    i would not think the 2 are linked.
    unless a silly person taped into the loom in the wrong place or trapped a

    as for the light, try the paperclip trick on the diagnostics plug.
    that should tell you the reported fault(s)
    or a trip to a dealer for a tech2 scan(£15-25 depending on dealer)

    not the thing to say maybe but...
    out of experience, i have found most of these (maybe) problems disappear in
    a few days.
    seems like some of the systems monitored are a bit prone to being activated
    by a sharp 'spike' down the electrics
    which fitting a new CD/Radio (or alike) sometimes does.

    Check that the speed sensor wire (should be Blue/Red) has not been connected
    to the new radio as this signal is also feed to the engine ECU. No signal
    turns the management light on.

    i had a new cd fitted and have same kind of problem . only my cavalier 16v
    sri goies into limp home mode and wont go over 4000 rpm
    i have found out that by quickly turning off ignition and back on ( engine
    should still be running ) this resets it and runs fine
