Re: Engine Management Light

Vauxhall looked the fault yesterday.....turns out it’s to do with the recirculating of fumes from the petrol tank into the combustion cycle. There is a slight leak by a valve apparently so more air is getting in causing the fault light to appear (which had disappeared earlier in the week) and think ...

Engine Management Light

Morning all, Just returned from holiday in Cornwall where the EML came on twice in 5 days, the AA came out and looked at it as the message was ‘running lean’ or similar and the bloke said it’s probably the oxygen sensor starting to fail. Anyway it’s on again as it came on after a quick stop on the w...

Air con performance

Hope everyone is enjoying this weather! Just after views on the corsa air con. I’ve seen on another thread that someone said it’s not great, I’d echo that when comparing to other cars that I have been in where it’s been freezing whereas mine seems to be ‘cool’ at best, even on maximum with recircula...

Re: Black intellilink screen

So, the dealer has replaced the unit and it works fine.......however the display is based on Chrysler not Vauxhall so no DAB but lots of other odd bits. Not ideal. Anyone know how to do a quick re set/re boot or is it another trip to get sorted....again! Dealer said they had to programme the new uni...

Re: Black intellilink screen

Yeah, I reckon so. I was out earlier (in the sun) and went into an underground car park, the lights come on, the dash dims a bit an the intellilink screen went blank but radio still works and the screen still beeps when you touch it. Drive out, the lights go off and screen shows again. I'll let the ...

Re: Black intellilink screen

Its an R4.

I've tried adjusting the display, when the auto lights are on, the brightness of the dash plus dials will increase/decrease however the radio screen is either on brightly or not at all.

Suspect it's a fault with the sensor or the unit.

Re: Black intellilink screen

After a bit of tinkering.......
Engine on, cover up the light sensor, headlights come on, intellilink screen goes black (but radio still works).....un cover the light sensor, headlights go off, screen lights up again.

Trip to the local dealer.....!

Radio still works fine when the happens, just can't see the details although when you touch the screen it still responds (although I can't see what it...

Re: Aircon sticking

Took mine to a dealer to get checked (as part of the creak noise which was something to do with the clutch cable catching and wearing abit so its been lubricated but that's another post of mine) and the chap there was very nice and showed me the page in the handbook where if you aim the air vent to ...

Re: Aircon sticking

Have a similar issue where if the vent control points to the windscreen it seems as if the air con is on (air is very cold) but on other settings such as feet or dash vents its off. I hadn't turned it on and left it pumping air out of the windscreen vents and when I got home water was dripping from ...
