    The "engine" symbol means that the ECU (computer) has detected some sort of fault. If your car has any warranty from the seller, take it back, get them to fix it. Otherwise the diagnostic codes need reading, £50 at Vx dealer, £20 upwards at independendent garages, both plus the cost of fixing the problem! The Astra audio is quite good by OE standards so no it's not normal.

    The verdict from the dealeers was..............

    The egr valve new 1 fitted under warranty Whats it do (exhaust gas recurculation valve I belive)

    I have also read in my (new manual) that if the engine light stays on its a fault with the emissions & if it flashes its a fault on engine managment.

    They also fitted a new stereo which doesnt chatter at me now so Im now a happy bunny again for a while.

    P.S thanks for the welcome

    This is me & my other toy

    Sounds like a pretty good result, especially with the stereo!

    Welcome to AS btw, any pics of the car?

    Ive had that light flash at me once it ended up being the ignition module which needed replacing only £20 on ebay instead of £160 from Vaux
