Vauxhall Corsa C - Corsa C easytronic wont start or go into gear - malcsmith

I had the clutch actuator fitted to my wife’s corsa about a year ago and it worked fine. The car has now developed the same fault:

· will sometimes not crank over with an F on the display panel.

· Sometimes will be fine

· sometimes will start, but will not go into gear.

It is in the garage now and they have given me the fault codes:

P1703 Present – Brake light switch signal CAN-bus malfunction

U20105 Not present – CAN-Bus no comms with ECM

P0505 Not present – Idle speed signal CAN-Bus malfunction

P1700 Not present MIL request via CAN

P0110 Not present – Intake air temperature signal CAN-Bus malfunction

P1895 Not present – Engine Torque Signal CAN-Bus malfunction

P1896 Not present – Engine Torque request signal Can-Bus malfunction

P0725 Not present – Accelerator pedal position signal CAN-Bus malfunction

P0115 Not present – Engine coolant temperature signal CAN-Bus malfunction

Garage say it needs gearbox strip down to see what is wrong - doesn't sound righjt to me. Anyone got any ideas?

Thats a list!

If it were in with me right now 1st thing I'd do is fix the brake light fault,

then clear the codes and retest it.

Any brake light/circuit fault will flag the "F" and give a non start.

As to pulling the box apart I can't see that doing much good.

Basically it's a manual gear box with some electric servos bolted on THE OUTSIDE!

That sounds like a good idea. I'll give that a go. It's still in the garage at the moment.

Sorry for the duplicate post, I couldn't see this post for some reason, so re-posted.

I can see them both now!

I had not even heard of the the easytronic, so had a google. Always interested in how things work (or don't).

Have a google for Vauxhall Easytronic repair.

A few garages and repair services seem to be available.

Some useful info on this one. A search result. Not a recommendation.

Faulty brake light switch can cause havoc

Edit - just spotted hardway has suggested the same

The gearbox itself is a manual - with bits added on the outside
