Engine Electronics fault Astra 16- 2001 - peterofware
Hi,
Similar to one about a Vectra. My "spanner" light has come on recently, seems that the 30deg heat may have had an effect. Unformtunately it is now happening even when it is cooler, but after driving a fair distance, and probably when i am going over 3500 revs - although I can't be sure of this. Switching the engine off for a second clears the fault. An engineer friend check the fault code and said it was something to do with the throttle housing. It has happened a few times since its original appearance.
Can anybody advise whether I need to be concerned about it, and if so is this likely to be a software or hardware fix please?
Cheers,
Peter
