Corsa C 2003 52 plate, 1.2 sxi
Had a fault where it was judering and emissions light was coming on when you pushed down accellerator, wouldnt go over 5k revs, took t for diagnostic today and it turned out the problem was there is a bracket on left side of engine with 2 earth wires from the ECU attatched, this bracket had become loose from previous accident damage, so the car had a bad earth, so naturally the bracket was tightened.
The original problem went away, but now the car wont start at all, it is juts cranking over with no attempt to fire, and the spanner light is just constantly flashing all the time, imobilizer kicking in???
Dignostic is saying something about transponder fault, but how can this have happened just by tightening a bracket???? and aslo how can I fix it?? has it just lost sync of some description?? im at a total loss and im not sure the auto elec really knows where to go from here, and I want to avoid VX dealer at all costs LOL
