sorry i don't know the actual code, the man at the garage only said it was either cat or lamber switch
what codes were stored in the ecu ?

The light needs to be reset even after a part that is determined to be the cause is replaced. So when the garage replaced the 'faulty' part and reset the light they should of taken it on an extended road test to allow the ecu to do a full system check. If they haven't done that and seen that the light didn't come on after a short period of time they wouldn't know that the problem was still there, although since no light is on they assume the fault is fixed.
So after handing you back the keys with the light out you assume everything is fine. Until you take the car for a long enough run. This can be days or even weeks since you paid your hard earned cash to fix a fault that was never the cause.

Not to add a bit of doom to this,
But I had the yellow engine light come up on my people carrier (citroen C8)
Asked Citroen about fault they said bring it in to check, The engine completely seized within a month.
Now to repair it, I was quoted telephone numbers. They just stopped short to say I require a new engine.
Be careful with this warning light. It could be a small thing or large.
I now have a Focus.
