    Fault codes

    Hi guys, first i would like to thank everybody on here for there knowledge in the past, although i dont post much, it has proved helpfull!

    Car has been playing up a bit lately so i thought i would give the paperclip method a go.

    Right i have the following codes come up.

    10-3-4-10-10-3-5-2 then repeats itself.

    10-3-4-10 (0340) camshaft sensor ?
    10-3-5-2 (0352) ignition coil 2 & 3 ?

    Doing a bit of a search on here shows that the codes are the above problems?

    Can anyone please confirm that i have it right, & also the best place to get the parts & part codes.

    Car is a 1999 Astra G 2.0 SRI (X20XEV)

    Thanks for any help.
    Chris.

    Heeellllllp

    OK, update time, got the parts, new coil pack, new camsahft sensor, new Splitfire ht leads.

    Fitted them today,left the battery disconnected for over an hour while i was fidling, took sparkplugs out, and because new ones have not yet arrived i cleaned and put back into different holes to mix them up a bit.

    Started car up and eml light was still on, took it for a drive which was a bit of a pig, loss of power and jumping around, which was a lot worse than it was.
    Checked all connectors, fine, and spark plugs, all four was now all sooty.

    Checked codes again and still the camshaft sensor and coil pack ones are showing plus a new one ---0120---, any ideas what this one is.
    I'm begining to think that a trip to Vauxhall and a big bill is coming.

    Any help would be great,
    Chris.

    Sooty spark plugs could be a blocked air filter.

    I really think you need to take it to vx for a checkup.
    It doesn't sound too good.

    Good luck.

    Well, the cars booked in at vauxhall for Wednesday.
    The thinking now is that maybe the ECU is up the shoot, will post again when I find out the results.

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    i have a very similar problem chris! however on my car - it has broke the car. The computer was plugged into my car and it came up with 5 unknown errors. It related to the coil pack and whats called an EGR valve. My engine doesn't start and mine has had a new coil pck and no different, pspark plugs check and still dead

    He's spoke to vauxhall and its going in tomorrow to be fixed. Reckons the ecu could be broke and might need new one.

    Look into it though, there was a re-call on 1999 to 2001 models that had a problem with the ECU and then needed some sort of software update or something changing on it to fix the problem. Could you let me know how your's goes and i will keep you posted about mine if ya like.

    Right as promised an update, car back from vauxhalls.

    I will quote from the work sheet " carried out investigation and found fault with the throttle position sensor, carried out fault test steps and found short to ground inside the camshaft sensor,new sensor and connector required as connector broken. Removed and replaced all ok"

    So basically the new sensor i got was rubbish, going back for a refund i think.

    In future I think I will just let Vauxhall sort it out.

    Cheers
    Chris
