    Intermittant transponder problem help!!!!

    I hope someone can help, ever since we bought the car the horn has played up, when you try it nothing happens, at the same time the steering radio controls mess about, you try turning volume down and it just goes up, also if you press the horn the volume goes up. Now just recently the car has refused to start on a few occassions, no starter click etc, took it to a mate who read the codes as intermittant transponder fault along with another cant remember. Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be, we just had a new arrival and dont want her getting stranded. Please help..

    I have read there was a post about the Watchdog tv series revealing the problems with the mk5 astra, and it said that vauxhall would fix any steering control problems even if it was outside the warrantee, this was back in about april, does anyone if this free vauxhall repair is still currant?

    Yep, as above, go into vauxhall and mention the problems, if they kick a fuss, drop the watchdog programme line on them.
