    No Ignition lights.

    Hi i'll just explain my problem a little. I went out to the car and my hazard lights were flashing for no reason so i jumped in and pressed the button but they didn't stop flashing so i started the car up (Astra 1.9 cdti 0n a 56 plate 22k on the clock) and tried again but still no joy. I then turned the car off and had a look in the manual. When i tried to restart the car the radio and fans etc came on but the dash lights did not and the car would not start. I had to disconnect the battery to stop the hazards but now have no ignition lights and a car that wont start but all the other electrics work any ideas?

    hazard lights flashing without any reason is usually a sign that it has had a knock and has been registered with the ECU and will need resetting my the garage (tech2). It might explain the lack of dash lights too

    tech2 is the software that VX use to access information within the ECU.
    other companies use simular software which work but is called a different name.

    unfortunately everything is controlled by brains on the mk5 (like the CIM, ECU etc).

    just coz there is no damage on the car doesnt mean its not been hit, and repaired.
