Hi,

After owning this car for a week I had to swerve to avoid a fox. Car runs ok but comes with faults on ignition. A red spanner and a triangle with a red exclamation sign and a ping. On reading the manual it said to stop the car and take it in. I took it to the authorised dealers who told me that there was an abs fault but said it was a false report. They must have done some reset as the error did not show on me leaving the place until I got back home.

Took it back again, saw the engineer in the workshop he showed me a print out taken from the car. At the bottom it said no repair can be made. The engineer explained it was a false report and suggested a lot of cars do this, is it normal for these error signs to show on startup?

Anyway I took the car away, the car drives perfectly, only I am concerned that i have a car that cant be sold due to the error messages on ignition.

Anybody else having this issue?

Hi. Forum seems littered with various error messages but it's hard to know % of cars built which are effected. Our sept 22 car (very low mileage) has seen only two occasions with error messages TPS both times. The error in our e Corsa occured in identical very wet conditions,while driving through surface water on A road . Checked tyre pressures on both occasions and no loss of air and error messages disappeared on restarting car. In Jonathan Porterfield's three episodes on tube he mentions poor shielding from water ingress which then causes deterioration of electrical Connectors needing replacement of wiring loom. He mentions , at least once, rear wheel arch shield issues. These wiring looms are both in short supply and tricky to replace , also potentially risking damage to other local wiring. I think we might be in a corporate group litigation action for not fit for purpose, what say you
