    Flashing S

    Hi, Recently my Nreg Astra has started running very sluggishly and the yellow S is flashing. This makes it pretty difficult to move off from standing, but car fine at speed. Don't want to change gears manually forever and can't afford Vauxhall diagnostics! Can anyone direct me to the gearbox ecu as I've been told this may be the problem or the plug where I can do the paperclip test?

    Welcome mate

    The plug for the paper clip test is next to the fuse box

    We had a problem like this with a Caviler at work which turned out to be low gearbox oil, maybe check that first?

    Hi, Thanks for that, I've already done all the usual dips etc, so it's probably something more serious. Someone said it may be one of the fuses blown, so I'll have a look tomorrow and also try the paperclip test in daylight.
