    Everyone is baffled by my traction

    Since i brought my car in october the stability light has been stuck on constantly, the sport mode does nothing when pressed and held.

    ive had to take my car to the dealers garage a few times where their diagnostics couldnt find a problem, ive had it to a proper auto electrics garage with all the latest bosch diagnostics, which it comes up with a pressure switch (it does not have one) its had a shit hot electrition travel miles to have a look (he was confident he knew what the problem was) but after replacing the part he thought was the problem......still no luck.

    so the dealer has decided to get it into vaxhaull, it went in yesterday for diagnostics, was ment to have it back at 4 yesterday but just rang them up and they are still waiting for the workshop to confirm the problem.

    looks like i will never have traction control and looks like buying an opel was a bad idea after all
