    Friday afternoon car ???/

    Hi

    have started a new post as my boot problems have all been sorted now .... one down lots more to go

    Issue with horn not working when lights are on has still not been resolved - Vauxhall have provided fixes to the garage but these have also failed to work. Still more testing required.(replaced various wiring looms/harnesses)

    Rust patch - this may just be a stain coming from the door hinges - hopefully this is the case as not it seems my car did not have full vauxhall service history when I purchased from Dealership - so body work warrenty is void

    Alternator failed whilst driving - theis has not been replaced along with tensioner and belt

    My other problem that I have now is that I want rid of my car and hope the next owner has more luck with it - unfortunately I am unable to sell it privately with these issues still now resolved by Vauxhall. If I trade it in I have to accept a lower trade in price..... anyone have any ideas of how I am able to speed up this repair process with Vauxhall or gain some kind of deal from them ???

    I do believe that the horn issue has been present since I purchased car last August - Network Q test certainly doesn;t cover trying horn with lights on !! So not sure how I stand with dealer I purchased from.

    So basically your outstanding problems are the horn not working with the lights on and your rust problem????

    seems it may now be the wiring harness still and that the one replaced was faulty - car going in tomorrow so hopefully issue will be resolved
