Vauxhall Astra

HI everyone, I have a 3 door astra sport which I recently purchased. I didn't realise on the test drive (not sure why) but the car isn't going into gear 5 just goes up to D4 and stays there. It runs smoothly through gears 1-4. No warning lights come up so not sure what it could be. I read a previous post about a yellow indicator relay. Do you think this could be the problem? Would really appreciate a quick response from anyone. Thanks, Luke

can anyone please help me. im wanting to jump into the rear speakers in the doors so i can run a sub speaker but i dont know what colours the speaker wires...ive been looking on the internet now for nearly 2 weeks and not found anything that could tell me.i have not a clue were to find this out and ive no idea how to get to the wires to link into...could anybody please help. many thanks in advance

Answers

Two options. Either remove a rear speaker and this will in turn reveal the wires to the speaker, or , if you can remove the radio , sometimes there is a wire colour code on the radio itself. This may only refer to the wires coming from the radio but you should be able to follow the wires through the connector to discover the colours in the cars loom. hope this helps. Pete from Kent

Hi. I know this sounds crazy , but i have had the same experience. I checked all the suspension joints etc. and found nothing wrong, so i investigated other areas and found that i had a broken front engine mount. If your suspension/ hubs etc are all ok , might be worth checking other areas as i did. You'd be suprised how a knocking sound can come from somewhere totaly unrelated to what you might think and yet sound and feel like its coming from the wheels ! Hope this helps. Pete from Kent

peter rush, Dorset

Vauxhall Zafira

My temperature gauge climbs to half way then falls back to zero. Also it is loosing water and needs topping up every 40 miles or so. I can only think this water is somehow getting into the footwell which is sometimes quite sodden. Apart from this the car pulls beautifully and has just been serviced. I just had a new temperature gauge fitted but this new one is behaving like the replaced one, so I don't think the problem lies there. Any help to resolve this curious situation would be hugely welcomed. Thanks, Peter R

Answers

Hello Peter. From what you are discribing, it sounds like you may have a leak in the heater matrix. . maybe a loose pipe connection ? With regards to the temp gauge , it could be a faulty temperature sensor which is located on the side of the radiator. Hope this helps. Pete from Kent

Vauxhall Vectra

Hi Wondering if anyone could help me out i know nothing about cars in mechanical wise, so i will try to explain the best way i can. My model of car is..... Vectra Active 4 Door Saloon 1.8 16V Petrol 03 Plate I get a whirring noise when driving it's loud in first gear, i have been told it could be clutch or gearbox issues, i have already spent for a new radiator, new brake pipes replaced, new timing belt these were done almost 2 months ago and last year i had new brakes and drum etc replaced, now getting this issue. When driving you hear it more as you pull away in 2nd still the same noise 3rd slightly less and 4th & 5th but when you drive in 4th or 5th you here the whirring noise very slightly, when you put foot on clutch you don't hear the noise, and i have noticed the revving thermometer slightly higher then normal when i'm changing gear AND for some reason i have up on my dash display a light Bulb warning i have checked all my lights and they all working, so what can this be? Did wonder if it's to do with gearbox oil? because i was looking up and mentioned gearbox oil. If someone could give me a quick reply on this matter it would be most appreciate for any helpful comments, and if it's due to gearbox oil then i have saved a fortune, but with the luck i'm having na :-( Regards Malcolm

Vauxhall Antara

I brought my Antara as an ex-demo in February 2014. It was was about 6 months old. They serviced it when I got it. Meaning my second service was due in either 20,000 miles or the year. Not a problem. But in November the spanner and oil can light started to stay on for a minute after starting. I have been told it needs an oil change due to DPF. Since owning car in February 2014 to now November I have done approximately 16,000 miles. My mileage is mainly on motorway . So why do I need an oil change now then I have to service it in February 2015. I was told when I brought the car, your service is either 20,0000 or a year. Well I have not reached either. At present I am talking to finance company and trading standards. If I was told it would need oil changes in between I would not have brought it. Can anyone please tell me if they have the same problem. And do I have to do an extra change. As I am also told if I do not do this, my warranty is affected.

Just done it again tonight, the sad news is that my temp gauge doesn't work to be honest so not sure weather it's overheating or not... Doesn't seem to hot. The oil and water are ok too. Anyone got any ideas what it might be? When it cuts out there is a little light with like a car with a spanner going through it. Hope someone can help? And would it be something I could fix myself?

Vauxhall Astra 5-Door Hatch 2004

Can anyone help me please? I am having problems with my Astra automatic. The fault is that when I accelerate hard the car judders as if it’s not sure what gear to change to between gears 3 and 4. If I go on a run and reach around 60mph the car sticks in 4th gear and spanner light comes on. The only option then is to change manually or stop and turn ignition off and then back on and this clears the spanner light and the gears reset itself. I have already changed the gearbox because with the last one the 3rd gear stuck occasionally and the engine management light came on.

Vauxhall Meriva

Hi, I've got a 2011 Meriva. I've started to experience acceleration problems where occasionally the acceleration at low revs feels very sluggish and jumpy before kicking in. There are no EM lights coming up. This tends to happen more after the car has been running for a while 20 mins or more. The rev counter seems to move smoothly when this happens but it's clear that there's something not right. I don't want to take it into the dealership just yet without any ideas what the problem could be. Any ideas?

Answers

Same issue with my Meriva last year.... The garage put it on the computer and sure enough there was a major fault there. They couldn't find the fault at first (took 5 days) and then it was the coils that needed changing. If I were you I would take it to the garage, tell them you took it somewhere else and they have advised you it is the coils, this way if you ask them to check them first it will save you £££'s Eventually as the issue grows the car will lose power altogether or not start at all.

Had exactly this same problem recently when on holiday in Cornwall. Suddenly no instrumentation except the boot open light. The AA man said it was probably the Body Control Module having a strop for some reason. He had seen it on Vauxhalls and Fords. He disconnected the battery power terminal and let it alone for 5 minutes then reconnected it. Turned ignition on (but did not start the engine) and left it on for a couple of minutes. Then turned the key and started the engine and all lights back to normal again. He said he had just rebooted the BCM as you would a computer. It’s been ok since. Anthony from Essex

I have had this problem for a few days with my clocks not working and only my door open light showing. I read this forum and thought I’d try after getting quoted £50 to get a diagnostic test done and fuse check to find the problem.

This defo helps. I live in East Sussex and I was visiting my nan yesterday in Hertfordshire. When I got there my car was fine but on the way back I realised all the lights were off and the speedometer/fuel gauge too. Car was running as normal so I went to Evans Halshaw in Borehamwood to see if they can help me as I had no idea what the problem was. Evan Halshaw refused to help saying they are very busy and nobody can take a look, I will have to book an appointment to come back. I told them I don’t live in the area and I just want to be sure if it is safe to drive on motorway. Anyways I came out of that and Googled the issue on my iphone and I read this thread. I tried to reset the mileage (tripmeter) with the ignition on and it worked straightaway. Thanks guys for sharing this because I dont know how much Vauxhall would have charged me for this.

Hi Greg. You have to accept your instrument cluster has gone. I bought a second hand one from a breakers yard and had it clocked back to original mileage. It`s been perfect since. Here is the link for the breakers Greg. They post / deliver to wherever you are. Also they are very cheap! All parts guaranteed for 6 months. Just enter reg, then part needed. Withina few hours you will have the quotes. www.breakeryard.com Don't pay someone to instal your cluster....watch YouTube as it is so simple to install a cluster, trust me. Hope this helps. Aron Aron from West Sussex

You`re a legend, my dashboard has been off for about 8 months and it`s fixed just like that, cheers mate Greg from Wiltshire

Hi. Had this issue with a 2003 Vectra C, the dash display used to drop out all of the time, sometimes completely gone. It turned out it was the connection at the rear of the display, fixed it by doing the below: Fixed it by taking out the instrument cluster and getting rid of the push down clip that makes the plug push in. Search for "Opel and Vauxhall Vectra "C" Dashboard/Instruments Panel Removal" by uploader "DIY Maintenance and REpair Guide" - this shows how to get the cluster out. All you need to take out are two screws under the wheel (can only access one at a time), then follow the instructions (took me about 5 minutes). Once you get the cluster out there is a connection at the right hand side, push down the tab then release the clip and pull out the plug. Then I cleaned it with contact cleaner, if you don`t have any don't worry too much. The black push down part needs to come off - push it back to the top position and you will see there are slots that line up so that it can come off. Slip a tiny screwdriver under each side to pop it off, then push the plug in all the way. (Without the clip it lets it go in further, I did take it out and just clean it first but it didn't fix the issue). Once you have pushed it all the way back in, secure it with a cable tie or something else. Hope that helps somebody else. Cheers, Will Will from Australia

I have an Astra mk4 1.7 tdi 52 reg, I had the same problem no indicators ,dash light and speedo, temperature gauge, fuel gauge, hazard light, auto wipers rear window heater interior lights fog light. All that went and I checked the fuses ,relays , changed the multi timer, changed the dash board, reboot the car system, nothing worked for two weeks, then my daughter called the AA, and the AA man checked my car and found that one fuse was missing and it was fuse slot number 22, its 15A that was causing all that problems, what happened was my break light went and I tried to change it with a new pulp and something sparked so I went to check the fuse box under the dash board I must put the fuse in different place and that caused the problem, the fuse numbers in the manual book, so Always check if any fuse missing or blowing. I thought it might help people with similar problem and good luck sally from Cheshire

Hello, I have a Vectra C 2.0dti 05 plate. My dash lights came on but as I turned the key to start the car it just made a clicking sound. A previous poster advised turning the key in the ignition but don`t start it, then reset your mileage meter to 0, then start the the car and it should work. Worked for me?

Hi, I've got an 05 plate diesel Vectra, everything on the dash goes off and if you bang the top of the dash sometimes it comes back on.

Mark from Lancashire, sounds like you have the same problem I did, look back at the posts for my one on my 2003 Vectra C. I used to whack the dash until I fixed it also, he he, it's just a dodgy connector going to the dash display and I fixed mine. Cheers. Will from Australia

Mine is a 1.9 CDTi Vectra registered in Jan 07. Instrument panel went dead. Only engine management sign lit up. Read all sorts on several forums. Tried resetting mileometer, doing it while simultaneously pressing brake, hazard lights, disconnecting battery, banging dashboard. Nothing worked. Even looked up instrument cluster prices from salvage yard as advised on here. Then had a go at finding the plug that connects power to the cluster. Removed the fascia around steering wheel, found plug, wiggled it with a screwdriver, and finally, everything returned to working order. I was so close to ringing an auto electrician. Smiling again now. Just hope I didn't get caught speeding in M1 50mph zone yesterday when it wasn't working..... Darren from South Yorkshire

Please, where is the horn located on a meriva

Answers

Hi, I have just changed mine (2011 plate). The horn is both visible from the top and from underneath the engine. If you are standing looking at the engine the horn is located down through the gap to the left of where you check the oil, approximately half an arm length down. From the top you can make out a kind of silver saucer shaped horn and the top bolt which holds the horn onto the bracket. Being a girl (and blonde) I found it easier to take the whole thing off from underneath, with the aid of a kerb. If you buy the part from vauxhall it's a simple clip connector and 1 bolt, they cost £20 but it's a lot less hassle than the universal ones for £5.99 on ebay. If changing from the top you need 2 people (one person applying upward force from below and the other screwing on the bolt), from the underside of the car it only takes one person and a rachet. Hope this helps Caroline from Tyne and Wear

Vauxhall Astra TwinTop 2007

Hi. I don`t know if anyone can help? I was replacing the wiring loom in my Vauxhall Astra TwinTops boot yesterday and was 80% finished when it started to pour with rain, so I packed up quickly and shut the boot. Now I cannot get into the boot as the green / blue plug had not been reconnected to the car, meaning there is no power to the switch. I can get at this plug through the back seat. Is there a particular wire that I can send a 12v signal to, to release the boot, as I’m pretty sure plugging into tech2 at a garage won`t work as it is disconnected from the ECU? (1.8)

Answers

Hi, yes you can open your boot. Open the ski hatch in the rear seat and inside the boot, again from the rear seat get a broom handle with a flat bladed screwdriver on the end and push it through to the rear of the boot. On the rear of the boot lid just to the left you will see a hole with what looks like a white piece of plastic in it, as you look into the boot put the blade of the screwdriver to the RIGHT of it and push LEFT and your boot will open Ray Morris from Durham

Vauxhall Astra TwinTop 2007

My Vauxhall Astra TwinTop convertible seems to lose power when I`m pressing the gas pedal. One minute it seems to be driving really smoothly, the next it seems sluggish and feels as though it wants to come to a slow halt. Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening? I’ve only had this car for two months.

Answers

If it’s the diesel then it could be the departiculate filter. Take it down motorway in third gear at about 60mph. This should clear the filter and the car should run better. I also cleaned my EGR valve out as well. Phil from Yorkshire

Mine did the exact same thing. I tried taking it to Kwik Fit but their diagnostics couldn't find anything so I had to take it to Vauxhall. They hooked it up to their computer and found that it was the EGR valve so I had to have it replaced. Ran fine for a couple of days then started to do it again. I took it back and apparently there can sometimes still be some dirt on the valve. I have to take it back after 1000 miles for them to check it's all clean. It hasn't happened since so it seems to have done the trick. Gail from Lancashire
