    Electronic Immobilizer Light

    2003 Vauxhall Astra 1.7dti envoy 5d

    Hi, need some help. Just recently I have been getting a light in my dashboard (car with spanner going through it). Initially I thought it was a service light but then found out from the manual its something to do with the immobilizer.

    Does anyone know why this light is coming on, its not on all the time just comes on and then goes off occassionally. Its not really affecting the cars power in any way (well not that I have noticed), not sure whether it needs looked at, or any advice from here would be hugely appreciated.

    Many Thanks in advance

    Shahid

    Its a light to tell you theres something wrong with you car... you should do a pedal test to get some codes and i can tell you what.

    Thanks mate, the pedal test doesnt seem to work for some reason, but now I have noticed the light only comes on for about a few seconds now and again then goes off. It does not affect the speed of the car or anything, ive just had the car for a few days, the person I bought it from had it sitting for a few weeks so could be a slightly run down battery fault. I will keep an eye on it, if it comes on too often then prob need checked out.

    The ecu is detecting a fault.

    Where are you from (Doesnt say in your profile) as someone local may be able to read the codes.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
