Don't know much about these things but the consensus of opinion is the P1191 code relates not so much to the sensor but to a circuit malfunction.

While the common rail diesel is commonly compared to electronic petrol injection, in practice there are a lot of differences; they are complex and consequently difficult to diagnose many of the problems.
Mostly it needs somebody who specialises in diesel diagnostics who has both the equipment and the experience - in the long run it tends to be cheaper to go that route instead of changing parts without the evidence they are faulty.

What many relatively skilled people still don't realise is these are digital systems and not analogue and traditional voltmeters are less use than an oscilloscope...

A code 4 it means that there is a problem with the air conditioning. Check if the coolant levels are ok and if the thermostat is not stuck or malfunctioning.

A code 82 error means that you may need to go for an oil change. However, if you want to reset this error, do the following:
1. Put the ignition to ON position to get all electronics to work, but the car does not crank up
2. The code 82 will flash, but you should wait till the display shows the mileage
3. Toggle across to where it says oil
4. Now put your foot on the break, and press and hold the trip button, and you will hear an alert.
5. Switch off the car, and then turn it back on-the error should have gone away.

did you ever find out what was causing the fault code.

Vauxhall Cars &... | Answered on Mar 10, 2020

Have you had it plugged into a diagnostic system or an OBD2 scanner? This might give you a trouble code to give you a clue as to what the problem is.
Most mechanics charge for this service but you can buy 'very very basic' OBDII scanners online.

Is there not the usual long steel tube with larger than engine fingerpull dipstick structure in it coming up into engine bay from auto trans?

On the insignia you cant get to the rear of the fuel cap from the boot. Remove the rear wheel (use an axle stand to support the car please), take out the wheel arch liner (just a few screws). Take out the solenoid that operates the lock on the fuel cap cover (you may have to push it in and wiggle it, theres a hook that connects to the flap you'll have to wiggle out). Flap will be free. Clean around where the arm enters the solenoid in case theres a piece of grit stopping the arm from moving (unlikely, but...). Connect the solenoid to the loose wiring of the solenoid thats now hanging there and lock/unlock the car a few times to see if the arm is moving. If it doesnt move, the solenoid has gone, change it. If your not bothered to lock your cap you can leave the solenoid off !
