    Bit of a strange one..

    not sure if i've posted in the right section so feel free to move as appropriate!

    strange thing happened last night with the Astra, i was parked up at Tesco and went to drive home but the car wouldnt start. didnt turn over or anything. I have the easytronic so it was basically like if i tried to start it without having my foot on the brakes, only i was pressing them.

    tried a couple of times but nothing, although the dash lights all came on and the stereo played so wasnt a flat battery, then i noticed on the LED display above the stereo, it was showing an "F" where the temperature usually is, and then the service icon thing on the dash started flashing.

    i took the keys out, waited a bit then tried again and it started fine and i drove home. turned it off and back on a few times to see if it would do it again but it was fine.

    any ideas what the "F" meant?

    haha funnily enough thats exactly what my boyfriend said when i text him asking what the "F" might mean!

    the ECU light wasn't on once it actually started so not sure if the paperclip test would bring anything back?

    seems really odd..!
