Katie, Kent

Vauxhall Corsa

Afternoon, my Corsa recently had an alternator failure on the motorway. The AA towed me back and the garage replaced the alternator and battery. Everything seemed fine, but I have now noticed that the A/C heating control panel is not working. I have no air control hot or cold, no rear window demister or AC. The lights behind the panel still work when my headlights are on. I thought maybe a fuse was blown when the alternator went, so checked all fuses and cannot seem to see anything wrong. Any suggestions?Kind regards Katie

I have recently been ripped off and been sold a car. It has issues and has now reached a point where it won't start at all, the battery light just makes it stall. It's battery and alternator are fine. It has a faulty fuel pump and loose wires underneath apparently but I cannot find the exact fault?

Answer this question

Nanette Banks, South Africa

Vauxhall Corsa

My Opel Corsa will randomly decide to not idle at all, so it stalls when I brake, or it will rev around 3000 when I stop. While I'm driving it goes ok though. Sometimes it has no problem at all, it is totally random and there's no way to predict when it is going to give problems. This problem has got worse over time, started with maybe one episode a month, now at least every second day. What can be done?

I turned the volume up on my stereo whilst driving then suddenly lost power in it altogether. When I got home I changed the stereo and the new one still wouldn't work. I then realised that my electric windows weren't working either but everything else works. Have tested all the fuses with a test meter and they are all fine. What could it be?

Casey, Cardiff

Vauxhall Corsa

Every time I drive long journeys in my car and reach up to 70mph my cars engine management light comes on and my car seems to pull and it feels weird to drive. I don't like it when it does this so I then return to a speed around 60mp. When I return back to the speed of 60mp the engine light goes off and the engine feels normal again. My car has recently been in the garage and everything was done. The only fault I had was my Cambelt and I needed a new one. I am worried about this problem I am having with my car because I am always doing long journeys. Would really appreciate some help and advice on what to do. Thanks a lot.

Dom, Surrey

Vauxhall Corsa

It's MOT time and I checked the lights but the driver's side headlamp, full and dipped, is dim. I changed the bulb a few months ago but didn't notice a problem then. I've read that this is likely to be an earthing problem and to follow the wires back to the earthing point. Well they go into the plastic tube/conduit with a lot of other wires which I followed as best I could, across the front of the car behind the bumper, picking up other wires on the way including the headlamp on the near side, but I can't find where the earthing point on the body of the car is. Any help much appreciated. Dom.

Answer this question

Rhian, Gwent

Vauxhall Corsa

Hello, Recently I have noticed that my main lights have stopped working atthe front of my car. The Rear lights, brake lights, and front uppers lights all work when the car is on and in Automatic mode. However, the main (larger) front lights do not work on both sides. The full beam also does not work when placed into the automatic position (i.e. when positioning the indicator into the position where the full beam should constantly be on). However if I pull the indicator towards me and hold into position (i.e. in a manor where this would normally be used say to flash someone) they will work, so it suggests that the bulbs havent gone if they work in this position even if in a manual way. What would you be able to suggest the problem might possibly be? Thank you in advance for any advice you might be able to shed on this?

THE YELLOW MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LIGHT CAME ON AND I IMMEDIATELY TOOK IT TO MY LOCAL VAUXHALL DEALER. THEY CARRIED OUT TECH 2 TEST,CODE IN SYSTEM P0054, FOUND FAULT WITH O2 SENSOR. THEY FITTED A NEW SENSOR, THE LIGHT WAS OUT WHEN I COLLECTED THE VEHICLE BUT THE NEXT MORNING THE LIGHT WAS BACK ON. THE SENSOR WAS EXPENSIVE AND HAVING IT FITTED HAS NOT RESOLVED THE PROBLEM. I AM NOW OUT OF POCKET AS WELL AS STILL HAVING THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM. ANY ADVICE AS TO WHAT I SHOULD DO NEXT ?

Answers

I chased this same problem all round the car... sensors, coil pack and other stuff. Just check the spark plugs. The sensors you replaced were clean and new, the car mis-firing will burn oil and then cover the sensors again and the light comes back on! It cost me around four hundred to change a spark plug so to speak. Tom from Yorkshire

Nancy Jones, Kent

Vauxhall Corsa

Hello, I bought my first car early this month and it has 80 miles on the clock. I know that, before I bought it, it had only done around 100 miles in the year. It smells musty and there are signs of damp, however I'm not sure whether that has any link to my problem. So I went out for a smoke today and tried unlocking the car with the key, it took me a few goes but the key is worn so I didn't think anything of it. When I approached the car it sounded as though it was locking and unlocking again. I ducked next to the passenger wheel arch to have a listen and it sounded as though the engine was ticking. Suddenly the lock locked again. I'm not sure if it is a safety feature. So I got in the car and tried to turn the engine on to use the in-car lighter. I tried three times but the engine wouldn't turn over and the car with a spanner logo showed up. Since the beginning of the month it has never had a problem starting. Once the engine started it was fine and the locks were fine as well. Any suggestions?
