    EGR valve possible. But you can either do the paper clip test (give you a flashing light on your dash then you read it like morse code and use the table to translate it into what the error code is and what it means. Do a search for paper clip test on the forums tool bar).
    You can either take it to vaux and they will tell you or take it to a good garage and ask them to give you the fault codes on the ECU. Come back and tell us the codes and we can tell you whats wrong and how to fix it.

    Does the car suffer from any other symptoms like stalling, running rough or anything of the sort or does the light come on and nothing happens?

    welcome...although you're not technically minded there is a guide on how to check fault codes with your astra...

    all you need to do is read this thread:
    http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.p...ght=paper+clip

    get a paper clip and follow the links in that thread....



    Otherwise, take it to a garage
    hope that helps !
