I have an MK4 2002 Holden Astra (Australia).
The Traction Control and spanner lights are on in the last 5 days.
I followed the instructions on this forum by cleaning the AFM using AFM spray and I cleaned the throttle body using carb spray.
I didn't remove the TB so I only managed to clean the top part.
It actually made the problem a little worst. Now the idle is a bit rough almost like running on 3 cylinders.
Most people on this forum ended up changing the AFM.
But since most spare parts shops are closed for Xmas and New Year, I can't get the AFM. I will buy it online since it cost AUD$400 from Holden dealerships.
In the meantime I'd like to do further test. I tried the pedal test several times but I can't get the eml to flash.
Will I be able to do the paper clip test on my car?
