There must be some programming to prevent accelerator and brake being applied together because I have had an Astra auto that cut out completely when I tried to dry off brakes after going through flood water. It just cut out. Verboten!
I suspect it is a micro version of the same control mechanism. There's two pro instructors who could write to Vauxhall (or is it Peugeot yet? Brush up up yer French)

Thanks to all concerned for the interesting read re automatic gearboxes: however, I must comment on the posts which
describe Easytronics as "awful" and "horrible". I ran a 1.2 C easytronic for 7 years/50K+ miles, am now well into my third
year with a 1.4 E easytronic. I looked after the C, used to change the fluid in the little reservoir once a year and gearbox
oil every 30K. Never had a transmission issue on either car, let's hope it stays that way. Come the summer, I'd like to syphon
out and replace the clutch fluid (like I used to on the C) but am unsure what to use: any advice welcome.

Hi - I bought a 66 reg 5 door auto SE trim in red at the turn of the year. I've seen the occasional shudder at low speeds but apart from that it's been all good so far. Hasn't missed a beat in the snow and the automatic winter mode has come in really handy.
