    Question need help pls spanner light on when cold

    Hi I have recently purchased an astra H 54 1.8 auto. since yesterday I have been having trouble when I try starting the car from cold it struggles to start and when it finally starts I get a spanner light on and it goes into limp mode. I have tried the pedal test and not come up with anything, when warmed up the car starts straight away no lights and not in limp mode. Pls can someone help or give me some advice on what to do or try next thx.

    best off getting a diagnostics ran on it

    ask in ur local regional forum and sum1 may have access to Op-com software and be able to diagnose the faults for you (just got mine today and good bit of kit)

    failing that, a trip to a local garage with fault finding equipment will be needed.

    you could try vauxhall but youd be better off collaring one of the techies in their lunch break and asking them to read it for a few quid beer money
