If the car is still using a distributor cap, I would have someone check to see fi the ignition control module is fine. I had an 84 Camaro that started to do that so I replaced the thermostat and then the ICM blew. I would replace both to be on the safe side.

Service light comes on wilst driving with slight loss of power, but on a restart the light goes out and it seams ok for a couple of days but then it happens again. this is a 1400 diesel corsa van 2010


I have heard of this before on Vauxhall models. As the routine maintenance point is reached the service light will illuminate and performance will be reduced to protect the unserviced engine.

Once the service has been carried out the dealer will reset the service interval computer using diagnostic equipment and normality should be restored. That seems to be the theory...

Could be as simple as a brake sensor ( that is your anti-lock braking system it is tied into the traction control system ) Good luck it is a easy replacement part if that is what it is.

While driving SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT comes on periodically. Right before SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT there is a very slight and brief hestitation ( or downward idling ). SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT does come at stops...


Hi check it out. You may need to replace your speed sensor. I was having the same problems a year ago and my speed sensors finally went all the way out. Now my light doesnt come on anymore and the car runs better.

Speedometer not working service engine soon light on


I would guess there is a relation between the inop speedo and the service soon light being on. Push OFF and WARM on the climate control panel and hold down together for 5 sec to read codes.engine and transmission require speed input to set engine/trans parameters accordingly. The car car is safely performing in a back up mode until repairs are made
