I have a Astra Turbo Convertible ccurrently on coil overs but moving to lowering springs at the weekend.
Astra Convertible 2.0 Turbo (03 reg)
-18'' alloys (2 new front tyres)
-riding on coilovers at about 35mm
I keep getting the traction control light appearing when the turbo kicks in and i feel the whole car skidding. At first i only noticed it going around corners at about 30mph but now it happening when i put my foot down, (just say 30mph in 2nd gear) on a straight. It only comes on for a second howeevr its not the light thats bothering me... its the car skidding.
The other day i was driving along doing about 40mph and suddenly the ABS and Traction Control light came up on the dash and would not dissapear. I pulled over and turned off the engine. I checked the wheels etc and everything seemed normal. I got back in the car, started the engine and everything was fine (warnings had gone).
Currently i am frightened to go round a corner at more than 30mph in case the back end swings out etc.
Does anyone else have this problem at all with the convertable/turbo????
sorry for the long post.... and thanks in advance! Jam
