I have Vauxhall Astra Life 2006, Patrol (Twin Port/Easytronic/semi-automatic).
Suddenly today i see that Exhaust Emission Light was on the dash board. Started to worry thinking about cost of repair etc.. becuase i rarely use my vehicle may be a mile in a day.
By searching in the site i saw an useful link (http://www.vauxhallownersnetwork.co.uk/showthread.php?204740-exhaust-emission-light-problem) to identify the fault code. With the help of steps in link i could find that fault codes as P0302 and P1700. Althoug i could get the fault code i can't understand any thing out of it. Very much appreciated if some one can tell me what the problem in normal words and how much would it cost to repair. I don't want to go Vauxhall to get sorted as they just try to mint money as much as possible.
Also wondering if i can my car with this problem not getting repaired as i don't find any difference in driving the vehicle with the Exhaust emission light on.
Additionaly, Looking at some link Error code explains like this and not sure what it meant.
P0302....Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected
P1700....Malfunction Indicator Lamp requested by trans control module
