Check tyres need to have similar wear on all 4 tyres and must be the same spec ie 205 - 70 ect uneven wear can cause wind up of thedrive train (gearbox ect} this can cause slow selection and de selection of 4 wheel drive on the frontera the 4wd light will flash continuously should disengage eventualy sometimes with a thump!!!! sometimes stopping and reversing can help to throw it out of 4wd

Hi my vaxhall insignia battery ran down i started it with jump leads but the odometer went back to zero wanting to sell the car can you please help thanks

Check all your fuses first of all if they are all okay, then you need the computer to be reset when you battery went flat & you jump started the vehicle it would to the vehicle think you had changed the battery just needs to go to Vauxhall garage they should be able to reset then all should be working not a long or expensive job. Hope this helps Best wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

Reverse lights on my vauxhal corsa v reg are not working

It`s the reverse light switch under the bonnet had to replace it on my 16v t reg corsa costs about 8-£10 and comes off easily because it`s just a bolt with electricals leading to the back lighting. This happens on every Corsa. Let me guess Your Heater control lights and fan swich lights have gone too on the interior. Any problem corsa related, been there done it.

Reverse lights on my vauxhal corsa v reg are not working

Yes. You can get the MOT station to do the repair or you can try and solve the problem. Check your fuses, the earth connections, your wiring and the voltage at the bulb. It could also be a faulty switch. I hope some of that will help.
