I'm out!!

As my daily journey pattern has significantly changed this last month, and I'm only driving 6 miles a day now, and with the Corsa turning 3 years old last month, I have decided to move it on. Cracking engine, I will miss its power but the supplying dealer gave me £6k back on it, which was more than ...

Re: All Electrics dead/deceased/ gone to

Initially, I would try a full CAN reset to see if that does the trick. Remove the battery leads, touch and hold together for 10 seconds, and KEEPING THEM APART from each other and the battery, go and make yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up for 20 minutes. Then reconnect the leads to the batt...

Re: Underseat storage

It was a slide-out plastic tray that sat underneath the passenger squab - it wasn't much use to be honest, as it would just about hold the book pack (as that doesn't fit the useless glovebox well).

They deleted it on 17MY, it's no loss...

1st MOT.....worrying discovery, and atrocious customer service from Vauxhall

My Corsa is 3 years old today, so was booked in for its 3rd interim service and inaugural MOT. It passed, no problem, however, will not pass the next one. Here's why. The rear discs were found to be severely corroded on the inners. The pads still had over 5mm on them, but the actual discs are below ...

Re: Stick or Twist

Its a rough, gruffer engine, and the power delivery is far from linear. It reminds me of my old Fiat 500 TwinAir (0.9l), quick, but sounded like a Tractor!!

If its refinement and smooth power delivery that you are looking for, then avoid the 1.0T like the proverbial plague.

Re: Service Tyre monitoring System - Please help!

How old is your car? The batteries in the TPMS valves eventually wear out and all you need to do is replace the transmitters.mthey are not expensive

Re: Stick or Twist

Disagree. I went from a 1.4 N/A to a 1.4T I had high hopes for the 1.0T, but I found it as rough as arseholes and noisy. The 1.4T is arguably the best engine in the range, though rare as hens teeth now as they have deleted it. Road Tax is still £35, it's smoother, quieter and quicker to respond on d...

Re: Apple CarPlay and iOS 12.3.1

Update on this: Vehicle returned from dealers this afternoon - diagnostics tested ok. Changed USB cable to an original Apple lead, and hey Presto! All back up and running again. It would appear that in the update recently applied, Apple have written some code that prevents the use of Non-approved ac...

Re: Apple CarPlay and iOS 12.3.1

Thanks for the reply. It doesn't matter what App is launched via CarPlay, it drops the front-end screen when it suits. This morning I was mid-telephone conversation and it just disappeared, the screen reverted back to the radio, and CarPlay would not re-establish a connection even unplugging and rec...
