2020 Corsa SE 1.2 radio cutting off

Post by darionne96 » Wed Sep 09, 2020 8:42 pm

I bought a brand new 2020 plate Corsa SE 1.2 from Arnold Clark at the end of July (31/7) and had to return it for a like for like car due to a fault with the radio which they said they couldn’t find therefore couldn’t fix. I have only had the new replacement car for 2 days and I am experiencing the same issue - the radio/Satnav system (electronic system in general) is intermittently cutting completely off as if it is totally shutting down and restarting - sound stops, screen goes black then restarts itself back up again with Vauxhall logo etc.

I don’t seem to be able to add the video footage that I have showing this however I have experienced the same issue in two totally new cars. Has anyone else had this same issue and could help? I plan to call the garage back tomorrow to try and sort something but it’s very strange the same fault is showing in two brand new cars of the same model.

Had my corsa for 3 months, and not had a issue like yours with the radio, it does sound like a power supply problem, having read a few other forums, vauxhall are struggling to fix anything on these cars,
I know of stop/start problems (does not always work)
Heater vents won't open
Gearbox problems.

I've started having this issue on my Corsa e.

Almost had my car now for 2 months, and the stereo has restarted itself 6 times in total, 4 this week.

The pop as it comes back on is really annoying.

We had a March 2020 build and reg in july 2020, rejected in September 2020 and new replacement has arrived. Issue with radio was related to DAB constantly dropping and couldn’t upgrade Nav maps either.

The 2021 is so much better as a car to boot

I just don't understand why the radio can't be turned off when you are driving and also just comes on when you start the car.seems the only time it switched on and off manually is when the engine isn't running.
