    I'll just have a look in my crystal ball..........

    on the other hand you could do a self diagnosis with a little more reliability and do the pedal method as outlined here:

    With keys out of ignition - press both brake & accelerator pedal at same time and keep them pressed to the floor....

    insert key and turn to 2nd click - ignition on but DONT START THE ENGINE

    Keep both pedals pressed throughout the procedure....

    the EML will flash just like previous models using the paperclip

    You will probably find the light flashes 10 times first then a pause then another number, a pause, another number, a pause then another number of flashes.

    I say 10 times for the first one as 10 flashes = a ZERO on the fault code and most engine related faults range from P0001 to P0999

    If for instance u have the following sequence

    10 flashes
    pause
    3 flashes
    pause
    10 flashes
    pause
    10 flashes

    this equals 10,3,10,10 which in turn equates to 0,3,0,0 or P0300 which in turn is "Multiple cylinder misfire"

    10 is the only number that becomes another number
    1-9 flashes remain a 1-9 code if that makes any sense

    Have a go and let me know how u get on.... if u cant find the cause of the code - do a google with the words "Vauxhall and Pxxxx" (whatever the code is) and see what it comes up with.
