    Vehicle : VXR Estate

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2800

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 3000

    Default Cutting out

    Help required
    First thing in the morn, into 1st gear then pull away from a junction, when i then change into 2nd the car cuts out.
    its not stalling cos all the dash display goes off (when stalling/engine cut out alt/oil warning lights come on and mileage still displayed), but on this all dash display go out inc mileage and gauges . The car will restart but not nice as its the missus that drives it most. it has happened to me twice.
    Am thinking poss dash prob/earth fault.
    Only picked the car up on Saturday.
    Any ideas. Veh is a 04 3.2 Gsi only done 28,000miles

    Hmmm, possibly the cim in the steering coloumn. I think that controls the dash. If the car doesn't detect all parts via the canbus it could kill the engine. Have a search for CIM module.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    so, to clarify?.. is the engine still running?. or is it just the dash that shuts down..?

    If it's the Dash, then as Big Sig says, it'll be a CIM module fault which will be around £400 to fix ( if you bought from a trader then thats their problem)..

    if it's the engine, it will have stored a code as to why it's failing.. does it rev fine?.. does it do it if you stay in 1st for longer and change up later, say around 3000 rpm?..

    does'nt matter how long i hold first gear, generally as soon as the clutch is dipped it will cutout, the engine dies and the dash goes out.
    sorry to be vague but cannot explain it well.
    bought it from Vauxhall dealer in york(200 miles away) so will arrange for local dealer to investigate.

    If the CIm module goes down will it cause the engine to die or does this just control the dash display??

    the CIM runs all the column control's/dashboard etc..it MAY cause the cutting out..BUT if the CIM is faulty it will flag a 'non communication' faultcode..
