After reading this post for how to read fault codes on an Astra H, I wondered whether the Vectra C had the same function.
The procedure is:
- Ignition off
- Fully press both the brake and accelerator pedals
- Turn key to Run (but not crank!) position
When I do this on my manual MY2003 V6 petrol, the engine light comes on for four seconds, goes off, then starts blinking about twice a second. It stops once you release either pedal, otherwise it seems to go on blinking forever.
Is this just the engine controller warning me that this is not a clever thing to do?
Do all Vectra Cs exhibit the same behaviour?
