    Pedal Test

    I have a astra 2003 1.7dti and sometimes get the spanner light come on then goes off, some days it doesnt even come on.

    One of the members here asked me to do a pedal test, but nothing happens, although not sure if im doing it the correct way.

    Key out the ignition, press down brake and accel pedal together, then stick the key in and turn till ignition is on, then the codes should appear, but nothing is happening, anyone else experienced the same problem.

    Any other advice will be appreicated.

    Try putting key in, pressing both pedals down & then turning key....keep both pedals down.

    Some days I dont even get the spanner light coming on then certain days it comes on for a bit then goes off, not sure if thats serious or not. It doesnt affect the cars performance in any way.

    My cousin had bought a astra 2006 1.6 a few months back and couple of days ago his spanner light has come on which is affecting his speed in the car, its made me a bit fearful as this sort of problem seems very common with the astras, why dont vauxhall do anything about this.
