    Welcome mate

    On turbo cars when the TC light stays on it usually points at a faulty AFM, were all the edition 100's turbo's or are some NA?

    Either way i'd be going back to where the clutch was done so they can check everything is alright and plugged in

    just TC or abs 2?

    the abs and tc light is on in my coupe atm... traced the fault to the abs sensor as i damaged that whilst i changed the springs...new sensor means new hub

    its generally the AFM when both the TC light and EML (car/spanner) light are on

    mine sadly has the TC light on now n again and Im thinking hub but fubar'd wheel bolt prevents me changing it this minute

    im also considering a proper tech2 hook up at Vauxhall to diagnose exactly which hub is affected - maybe this would be a good course of action for you too

    you ideally need to have the car hooked up to a proper TECH2 machine at Vauxhall to identify what the cause is - most likely to be a dodgy hub if u ask me

    i trust youve had the wheels off and checked the sensors are fully plugged in?

    spot of WD40 on them perhaps? disconnect battery for half hour to wipe any codes? (if u dont have stereo code for original head unit then just unplug the elec connections on the ECU for a few mins instead)
