    please help lots of fault codes from vauxhall

    hi i have just bought a 2005 plate vauxhall astra and took it in to vauxhall for a free test, for them to charge me a fortune to tell me these faults. can anyone tell me if they are very bad faults and what i can do to sort them out. should my warning light or engine management light be on with all these faults or are vauxhall just trying to make money out of me as the car runs like a dream. the only fault i took it in for was sometimes the car wouldn't start i think this is something to do with the immobiliser.
    thank you, carolyn

    p1616 cim steering column module wrong enviroment indicator
    p1614 immobiliser anti theft wrong signal
    b3055 transponder key problem
    b1319 immobiliser reciver circut malfunction
    p03402 camshaft position sensor open
    p0170 fuel correction dysfunction ( vauxhall says throttle pedal position sensor a circit low input )
    b3916 no communication with alarm system ( but alarm works so not sure what it means)
    p1550 electronic throttle control reduced power
    p1120 accelarator pedal position sensor (1)
    c0224 not sure what it means

    They charged you for the code read but didn't tell you what to do to fix the problems?

    Depending on the car you can also read these codes yourself for free

    yes they dint tell me much, they charged me 1 hours work that took 10 mins, they said they wanted to charge me another 150 quid to spend another hour 1/2 on the car to look in to the faults that were showing up as there was loads they wouldnt clear the faults and run it again to see if they were old faults unless they charged me again any ideas

    All errors logged might be a one off fault. Clear them and see what comes back in a week.
    Also for 30quid you could have a fault code reader (like op-com) which means you wont need to ask vauxhall to do it - might be a cheaper option in the long term!
