P0520 is low oil pressure and all the rest are codes generated by air pressure irregularities within the turbo and air intake pressure.

    so if I replace turbo boost sensor perhaps the power problem will be sorted? And the other would be a separate sensor/switch?

    Without running diagnostics on a test bench, you may be wasting a lot of money. Take it to an authorised repairer.

How can I get a wiring diagram for a opel astra 1999 2l fuel injection?

Have you tried Google? If not then suggest you invest in a workshop manual. Most of the Astra fuel injection system is solid state so unless you can actually see a break in the wiring the likelihood is that the problem will need a fault code reader to pinpoint.

Opel Astra 2001 1.2 ecotec - Hard to start and engine with hick-ups on idle

Guessing just wastes money . have the fault codes read first and find exactly which sensor/s are causing you a problem
not all faults energize the engine light and remember the engine light also refers to problems in the transmission

My Astra CDTi has cut down to tickover and will not rev on throttle fault spanner comes on . It has happened before but cleared by turning ignition off and restarting. Tried this but no joy

run fault codes and check for accelerator position sensor and other related faults. Faults have to be physically fixed so turning the key off and on will do nothing to fix a problem

Opel astra twinport 1.6 2006 Z16XE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START

Hi, Have a diagnostic scan done and also a mechanical error trace ,
the solution to the problem could be the CKP crankshaft position sensor or a wiring related issue, it could also be the fuel pump , the pump relay , engine management actuator . In order for your engine to start it requires the following:
Fuel pressure and volume
A proper spark
Correct valve timing and ignition timing
A decent battery vitally important as all engine management relies on it.
Hope this helps a bit
Regards Higgins.

Opel Astra Estate no spark so won't start

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
