    Default Couple of Problems :(

    Hi everyone

    Just bought a 52 plate 2.2 Petrol Vectra off a dealer with 31K miles, everything generally fine on the car, only thing is i have the car spanner light on when ignition on goes out when starting the car, i did have the service light on originally which i reset and this has been coming on since?

    Plus it's an auto and i'm hearing horror stories about water contamination and wonder if mine should be a recall? I don't wish it to happen to me!, I have spoken to a vauxhall dealer and it's only under a recall for radiator harness thingy? not sure what this means

    If it goes out when the car starts, isn't that just an historic fault code that'll clear after 25 restarts or so???

    BTW, that's an incredibly low mileage for a 52 plate!!!!!

    Can't find nothing on the recall re radiator harness. It's certainly not on VOSA's search engine for recalls

    As long as they are going to sort it, that's the main thing!!
