Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks
Astra Mk5 P2176 Fault Code 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
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

My girlfriends car has just started with the same problem, a limp home from the garage, a sleep over night and als well next day, for a while... I spoke to Mitsubishi and they have told me the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) is on the accelorator pedle assembly. There PN for this is MN125791 and its circa £88 + VAT. After exhausting all other options I may attempt this replacement and will advise the results.
