    Flashing ‘S’ light and ‘(!)’

    Hi

    Astra G 8v 1600cc Automatic LS 1999.
    I recently had my cam shaft snap which was replaced by a local garage.
    On picking the car up from the garage it was in limp mode and the mechanic had no idea why.
    I then took the car to a Vauxhall garage and they said there was no communication with the gearbox ecu and no engine management codes were present.
    I also have a flashing ‘S’ light and ‘(!)’ the one next to it. Both flash on and off or alternately but do not come on when the engine is started.
    They come on when the engine is driven but go off if the gear box is put into ‘N’ and stay off as long as I keep the revves down.
    While driving I have to select 1st 2nd 3rd manually there is no automatic shifting.
    Anyone have any suggestions??
    I cannot find anything about ‘S’ light and ‘(!)’ flashing together?!!!???

    Regards
    Gareth

    I dont know anything about auto boxes, but it sounds to me as if your mechanic has left a connector adrift.

    Hi

    The lights started flashing for the first time after the cam shaft broke ie while we tried to work out what had happened!!

    Hi

    I finally located the problem!!!
    I had previously checked the fuse box looking for blown fuses but found none!!
    I was just rechecked the fuse box again this time with the manual handy and noticed number 35 fuse was missing!! Popped in a new 10 amp and the problems gone.
    Happy New Year.
