    Intermittent error, could something to do with the ign coil packs on top of the engine, I got the exact same car, but dont have this error, or have never had it touch wood.

    Does it go into limp home mode when the light is on?

    More than likely it's you coil pack in it's way out - just throwing up an intermittent fault at the mo

    I had same prob with 07 Sri was juddery engine management came on. Changed plugs and coil pack and solved issue supposed to be common fault coil packs on astras.but can't get the light out. Can't b anything else had diagnostic man out £30 more down drain. Will it go out after few miles or do I reset it or punch it or wot? The insp reset didn't work learned that of google how to do coz lookers quoted daft money to reset it.Craig
