    from the manual...



    Exhaust emission
    Control indicator lights up when ignition is switched on. Goes out shortly after engine starts. If it lights up when the engine is running Fault in emission control system. The permitted emission limits may be exceeded. Consult a workshop. We recommend your Vauxhall Approved Repairer.


    If it flashes when the engine is running
    For fault that can lead to destruction of the cataly tic converter, see page 170. Consult a workshop immediately. We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Approved
    Repairer.

    thanks geoff.

    It came up earlier today when I was sat at traffic lights, out of gear handbrake on (I was sat there for over 20 mins).

    I turned the ignition off then on again and it went.

    I wouldn't bother about it then if it's just an odd occurrence.

    Mine comes on when pushing it on the dual carriage to/from work, especially when the engine has just been started.

    Thats maybe because you are pushing it when the engine is cold. There will be a lot of extra fuel going through to compensate for the cold air.

    And its not good to push the car when its cold - let the oil warm up a bit first!!
