    Think that is the power steering malfunction light. You'll have to get it fully diagnosed as its obviuosly very serious if the steering locks up!

    lol i would take it to vx mate and also if your going to continue driving it remove this post as if the worse happens and then the insurance company see you have been driving it whilst knowing it's doing that then they could argue you are dangerous driving and not pay out

    Common on the corsa. I've replaced a fair few.
    Torque angle sensor fault. It does not lock up you just loose power steering you can still turn it.
    Unfortunately the torque angle sensor is integrated into the whole Collumn

    Ive also heard of quite a few going, on all models. Try customer services to see if you can get some kind of support.
