I'm an ex-pat living in Egypt, with a 2006 1.6 16 valve Ecotech saloon (CD model - not available UK).
A lovely motor, loves the long straight desert roads, but I have a small issue...
The sun visor broke, and in trying to fix it I shorted the mirror light, blowing the fuse. Now, to make things more interesting the instruction manual is in Arabic (which I do not read!) and I could not find the fuse box, anywhere....
In the process of looking for the interior light fuse, which I could not find, I removed every fuse that I could find, i.e. the one's under the bonnet... including (I would imagine) the ECU fuse. Yeah, okay. I am a muppet...
I have now found the fuse box, behind the driver's cubby hole, and replaced the interior light fuse. The only problem is that the Engine Management light now wont go out, probably due to the ECU fuse being removed?
Now my nearest Opel garage is 1000 km away (yup, that's 600 miles) and I would like to know three things:
1. Have I caused a major problem with the ECU?
2. Will driving it 600 miles do it any harm?
3. Is there a work around that I can do to get the ECU to reset?
My own stupid fault I know, but your help would be appreciated!
Also, if anyone knows of where I can download a copy of the Astra's manual in English it would be a great help
