Answer this question

Caroline Hayward, Bath and North East Somerset

Vauxhall Corsa

When I start my CORSA up two little orange lights appear on the dashboard just underneath the stereo unit. It appears to be something to do with the airbag. At he same time a red light comes on where the seatbelt light flashes on and off until the seatbelt is done up. The little orange lights flash on and off but don't always come on. If the temperature outside is reasonably warm the lights don't come on. Have taken the car to a garage who have plugged it onto a diagnostic scanner and no problem showed up. Have put it onto another scanner at home but nothing shows up again. Was wondering what it could be as they are not on all the time. Many thanks Caroline Hayward

I just bought a Corsa 1.4 sxi and I can`t find the temperature gauge on the instrument panel, it only has the petrol gauge. Also my front lights stay on all of the time when driving, can I turn them off? Is this a Euro model? Applying the brakes causes a grinding sound, brake pads are okay, seem to be a bit too noisey! I`d appreciate your help if you have time, thanks

I have a Corsa C 2005 and have noticed the brake lights come on when I change gear, it goes off after a few minutes. Also it has started to lose power when changing from 2nd to 3rd gear, it's as if the brakes are stuck. Any help would be appreciated

Stephen Ross, Aberdeenshire

Vauxhall Corsa

Whilst driving my abs light came on then the heating in the car failed along with the lights inside the car and outside dimming right down and the steering went really heavy to the point where I couldn't steer the car. After I'd stopped for about 5 minutes everything came back to life and the car carried on as normal which enabled me to drive it home (which was just round the corner). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My door lock is very loose and rattles when I drive. It looks like there are two holes where the screws have fallen out. I did find one screw in the boot which very possibly came from the lock which I screwed back in but it just came loose and fell out again. Any advice appreciated.

I have an Opel Corsa b 1.6 GSI. At start up she idles very low and cuts out several times. She eventually regulates herself once I start driving where there are not many stops. One morning she did not start at all and I have since had the fuel pump relay, the cold start switch and the stepper motor replaced but still have this low idle problem at start up. One would think the mechanics would know what to do but it seems they are all still learning....
