  • vxr not well at all.......help please

    engine managment light came on en route to edinburgh this morning and car is now very very sluggish. feels like the turbo is only just starting to spool up then the engine seems to loose pwer??

    im running the court hoses and baily dv26d dump valve and also cold air induction. ive been runing this for a few months now and this engine management light has just came on. how do we get the fault codes up on the corsa?? ive tried the same as the astra, but to no avail

    any help will be great chaps

    Fault codes can only be accessed by Tech II on the Corsa - get it booked in and let us know the outcome. Good luck, hope its nothing more serious than a lose pipe.

            DumpValve would be my guess.... but that is a GUESS....

            Get it checked over.

              is the dump valve a twin piston one?

                    it could be the dump valve that might be putting it into limp mode, take off the dumpvalve and try disconnecting the battery for 10mins and see if it solves the problem.

                          cheers for the help lads! going to get it jacked up for inspection at some point today and have a good nose about. the bailey dv is the twin piston one with stronger spring fitted and this has been on since feb with no problems at all.

                          another quick quiery.

                          when you depress the brake and accel. pedel and turn the key two stops, the engine light flashes in a sequence of numbers, exactly the same as the corsa c fault finding.
                          its flashing 5414 which to me suggests a fault code??

                            Hi mate. You really do need a Tech 2 to check the system fault correctly or you could spend hours trying to trace the problem yourself. If you were local to me I would get my techy to check it for you. Good luck mate
