Had my Corsa MOT'd in February, new altenator fitted & new battery, next day had trouble starting it, when I got it started as I picked up speed it started jerking every mile or so, next day wouldn't start at all, it has now been at the garage for over 2 weeks, diagnostics showing nothing wrong, they tried fitting some sort of part that fiters air, still no joy, they are saying they cannot find the fault, spent £400 so far. I am at a total loss of what to do next, any help would be appreciated, it's on a 53 plate and only done 61,000 miles.

Trevor, Oxfordshire

Why is my steering light when I turn left and slightly heavier on the right thanks

Answers

Your car has electrically assisted power steering ie an electric motor built into the column. There is a torque sensor built into the column which determines the amount of assistance you get when you turn the wheel. The torque sensor needs adjustment, it's mounted on the steering column and requires some stripping of the dash to access it. Better to leave it to a garage, its only about an hours work.

MY ABS LIGHT COMES ON ONLY WHEN I REACH 60MPH. I CAN PULL OVER TURN THE IGNITION OFF, AND START AGAIN AND IT GOES OFF, AND ONLY COMES ON AGAIN AT 60MPH. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP.

Answers

If you don't have one odd size wheel / tyre on your car then quite likely to be a faulty ABS reluctor ring. There's one on each hub, a toothed ring which works with the ABS sensor to give wheel speed indication for ABS system. If it was the sensor itself the warning light would show all the time. Could be cracked, dirty, dirty, missing tooth etc, scan fault codes to tell you which one is giving the trouble.. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Answer this question

Rick nuttall, Greece

Vauxhall Corsa

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
