    Engine electronics light

    hi, i have a V reg vauxhall astra club MK4 1.6.

    my engine electronics light keeps on comming on. it doesnt come on when i first switch on the car but it will eventually come on later.

    two possible reasons could be

    my dad put some old fuel in it so i could get to a fuel station, this occasionally causes the car to bunny hop sometimes.

    or when i first had the car i wasnt able to drive it for two weeks because it had no tax. so i had to put the battery on charge a few times to keep it alive.

    any ideas on what i should do?

    i would be looking at a faulty EGR valve, quite common on the Astra and also i would treat the throttle body to a good cleanout with petrol or carb cleaner. both these measures should have it running sweet with no more bunny hops
