    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Default

    car/spanner light = engine electronics fault / automatic gearbox fault (if it is an auto)

    Also, if there is an immobiliser fault it flash on and off and the car won't start.

    You need to get the fault code(s) read out.

    Search the how2 section for the pedal trick - a free way of extracting the fault codes on some Vectras.
