I was wondering if there is a site where I can get [some] info technical delays?

A friend of mine was on a flight yesterday, delayed for 2,5 hours as a sensor needed to be replaced to get rid of an erroneous 'transit light' ; I was wondering if this info can be found anywhere

The info on your technical delay can definitely be found in the airline's operations/maintenance computer system. You'd have to find someone who had access to it to tell you any details as it's definitely not publicly accessible.

Sounds like you have as much information as needed... a sensor had to be replaced, which caused the delay.

Replacing a sensor takes time; you have to locate the part, do the maintenance and then the paperwork which usually takes the most time.

There are a limited number of items on the aircraft that have "IN TRANSIT" indications.
My first guess would be thrust reversers.
Other than that, without knowing the aircraft type involved, there are a number of pneumatic valves and fuel valves which have "IN TRANSIT" annunciation.
But aircraft maintenance information is NOT oublic domain, so no one is under any obligation to provide it to you.
Kind of a bummer, becase, as a mechanic, I ALWAYS want to know what was wrong with the plane I'm about to get on!

It was on the Transavia PH-XRE 737-7K2 and it had to do something with the slats.
