    Engine management light,

    Probably a faulty MAF, can't remember code for it.

    Why do people automatically assume it is one thing!

    Anyway its a 1.6 8v therefore it doesnt have a AFM/MAF/AMM (call it whatever u wish - its the same thing)

    Depending on what year your car is you can do either the paperclip or pedal test to self diagnose the fault

    Heres the 2 methods outlined for your information

    Let us know how you get on

    98-00 models - use the good old paperclip method: http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...69&postcount=4
    (ignore the other references in this post as its lifted directly from another thread)

    00-04 models - use the both pedal method: http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...78&postcount=2
