Hi, have a look in the Knowledge Base Articles on the forums home page - you will find a topic called ' the list of doom '
All the codes are there, I would have a look but I'm in the middle of dinner...
Ignore the pre/post heating relay fault - they all seem to have it and it doesn't really affect the Hdi.

Yes, the cam sensor is slightly hidden inderneath the wires that are running across the top/left of the engine itself - although if it was faulty then the car wouldn't start...

The Air intake sensor is the MAF, its showing a fault as its unplugged :cheesy:
