Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Had a wing replaced on my wifes car as she had a ding in it, I went cheap and cheerful to get it repaired and boy am I paying for it. On collecting the car it was in limp mode and fault P2176 keeps showing, and sometimes P2118. Wires around TB all look good and connectors are clean, can't shift the code and can't get it out of limp mode. Does anyone have any ideas or do I need to go to main dealers? The wing was off over night with head light removed and bumber un clipped (all offside/passenger side). It rained a little, and bonnet was up for a bit during the day during some light rain. Any ideas? Any help greatly appreciated

Windshield crack repair

The windshield is actually a piece of safety equipment designed to hold you inside the car in a horrific accident. Once the windshield has a crack, the integrity of the safety equipment is compromised and should be replaced. Repairing it is not suitable. If your seat belt was ripped in half, would you feel comfortable sewing it back together? I hope not.

Astra Mk5 P2176 Fault Code Had a wing replaced on

Firstly i cannot find these fault codes ,either on the generic or the opel code list ,now the computer on this car is on the back of the engine or to the firewall where the servo would be on a LHD model so its possible it got a bit wet ,but without being able to know what the codes are i have no idea where to do from here ,now the only thing i can think off is offside passenger side on a LHD vehicle would mean the gas fume recycling thing is on this side could the body man have left a pipe off this device or cut through one of the pipes ,I do think this is down the bodyshop to sort out for you ,what you should have done was to check the car out first before you paid for it

2004 Caravan temp light and rapid dinging

If you have a problem with a light check your temp gauge. Chrysler warning on engine overheating responds that way and as the engine becomes hotter the chime becomes more rapid. Check your antifreeze and fluid level, this may be the problem.

The dashboard says trunk open but the trunk is not open. It also continue to ding like the trunk is open, even when driving the car. The only way to stop the dinging is to disconnect the battery.

there could be a sensor on the trunk that alerts you that the trunk is open that has come loose & needs to be adjusted or it could be faulty & needs to be replaced......hope this helps......cheers.

On my 2008 chrysler pacifica while coming home we heard a ding and where our compass is it said perform service, what does that mean

If you heard a ding and the light also came on I would have the garage check the car out. It might be a coincidence but it looks likely that whatever happened (ding) the cars computer registered its effect and is not seeing what it would like to see to remain happy. The computer will store the error as a DTC diagnostic trouble code and your local garage can read this code to help identify and repair whatever went 'ding'.

You will be best to buy a remanufactured engine from a reputable rebuilder, unless you have a local shop that specializes in VW or try a reman from VW.

2006 Jeep Liberty sporatice warning signals

I had the same problem with my 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade. I shared with the Jeep service tech what I found on the internet regarding this problem. I was having the gas cap sensor to display and soon after other sensors were lighting and dinging and some times dinging without any indicator and vice versa. the service tech said he was not aware of any such complaints and recommended a diagnostic which found no trouble codes and recommended to change to the gas cap. I did so and no sooner than paying almost $100 for the service and returning home the same thing started happening again. I returned my vehicle and they called the Chrysler/Jeep service tech who obviously was aware of these complaints [Service Bulletin #14-001-06] and recommended the following: A complete system reboot. Disconnect the battery cables and short together for 15 seconds. If message returns then the problem may be with cluster. I have not had any dinging or gas-cap sensor display since this was done.
