Hello all, I have a Corsa, it is a basic model crank rear windows electric front. I was wondering what the senor on the dashboard is? it is sitting topside about the middle of the dash. I bought it from Hertz rental, very nice, but they couldn't tell me about what it was either. I have 15 years as a test driver for GM, and the sensors we had were for the headlamps, but I can't tell on this as my switch only has on/off no auto at all. So if you can be so kind as to let me know what this is. It looks like a sensor, it is domed shaped, and as I said, top centre of the dashboard. Thanks all, Rick Nuttall

Hi i bought a limited edition 5 door corsa a few weeks ago and everything has been fine, until recently, i have noticed a humming sound when i get above 20/25mph. it is hardly noticeable but as it wasnt doing it when i got it i am noticing it more often now and is getting quite annoying, have you any idea what this might be or could it just be something i may not have noticed before.?

I have a 2002 corsa diesel 1700 when driving tonight the engine cut out for a split second and then it accelerated slowly it done this 2 or 3 times and then the engine stopped. I tried to restart but it wouldn't start. the engine service light and oil light flash together as one goes off the other comes on. RAC were called and plugged in there diagnostics but said the computer wasn't saying anything. there is a clicking coming form one of the relays when the ignition is on and it seems to coincide with the lights flashing on the dash. RAC said never seen this problem before and it stumped him completely. anyone go any clue what it may be please

Why does my turning right indicator flicker slowly even though ive replaced the bulb with a new one . Thanks if anyone can help.
You need to replace the flasher unit - there is a relay in there that is renowned for causing this problem. You can get a new relay unit for under £20 and there are videos on youtube to show you how to replace it. We had this problems with my son's 2004 Corsa and this is a guaranteed fix for it.

I meant to say the car is an automatic and I took it to diagnostics but they hooked it up to 2 different computers and could not get a reading. I think this is due to the car being 16 years old

When I am driving along the car seems to suddenly start pulling back and straight away the orange management light comes on. Initially it came on and went off straight away and it was only happening when I started to accelerate from 30 mph upwards but now it is coming on at all different times and much more frequently and is also staying on a bit longer than it was initially before going out again. Can someone please tell me what this is and what I need to get done to get the problem sorted? Thanks

2002 Vauxhall corsa 1.2 16v sxi starts but immediately cuts out. Only two dashboard lights come one when you turn the key. The engine management light, which stays on and the air bag light which goes off after a second. Dash board would sometimes cut out when driving then come back on after a few seconds but car would drive ok. Any ideas?

Good day I have a 2009 Corsa 1.4i Essential. It has happened twice now that the engine runs really lumpy when starting the car. The engine light, and the this morning, gear box lights came on. I just switched of the car and started again and then it was running smoothly again and all the warning lights went off. What could this possibly be? The car has 85000 miles on the clock and as serviced less than a 1000 miles ago.

My 04 corsa 1.0 makes a whirling humming noise when driving but more when the accelerator is not down. It's more in the first couple of gears. Is this healthy or could it progress into something more serious? Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Lee

I have a 2008 opel corsa D 1.4 petrol manual transmission that has an unbalanced idle that hardly lasts without my foot on the accelerator,and if let to idle dies and when driven once I brake at an intersection the car stalls,no fault codes from an opel dealer could be obtained,lately at instances the accelerator stops responding when brake is pressed,the accelerator has a sensor that communicates with the throttle at the engine.which has a six pin connector,and I noticed the butterfly keeps shaking when it has this (rough)idle,as well it misses at instances when the accelerator is moved up or down,I seek help on this problem,I wish to run a check on any voltages between the pedal and the six pin connector as well as the ECU,anyone with the correct voltages could be of great assistance or else I might need to replace blindly and change the throttle unit from the engine as I have done with the accelerator pedal,thank you
