    Default 2004 SV6 - 'Check Powertrain' caution

    Howdy all. Was just driving my 2004 Holden SV6, and the 'Check Powertrain' caption came on :my: . Book says "it indicates an emission control fault. Although the vehicle may still be driveable, reduce speed blah blah blah, and get it checked by Holden".

    Can't get it looked at until Monday (Today is Saturday).

    Has anyone elso had this, does anyone know what it means, and if it is hard / time consuming on their part to fix????

    Any Clues - please pass em on.

    cheers

    Had it happen to me too.
    Was just a faulty O2 sensor which got replaced under warranty.
    Didn't harm the car at all, just ran a little bit richer.

    The check powertrain warning is nothing to do with the software issue, it indicates a fault with the engine management system & should be checked by a dealer asap.

    Happened to me a couple of months ago. Turned out to be a faulty left bank O2 sensor that was replaced under warranty.

    On my way home from work last night about 10 mins into my drive home... my car started beeping like crazy and "CHECK POWERTRAIN" caution came on... i see other people have had this and it turns out to be a faulty o2 sensor? I shall ring holden and get them to have i look. My sv6 has only done 22,000k's and i don't thrash it, mainly all highway driving... so i hardly think there would be something majorly wrong!

    it means there is a fault with the cars engine management system & it needs to be checked.
    as described in the owners handbook...
