Hello Sibusiso,

(From the 2009 Corsa Owners Manual)

Your Immobilizer system checks whether the engine is allowed to start with the key being used. If the transponder in the key is recognised, the engine can be started.

The electronic immobiliser activates itself automatically after the key has been removed from the ignition switch. If control indicator "spanner light" flashes when the ignition is on, there is a fault in the system; the engine cannot be started.

Switch off the ignition and then repeat the start attempt.
If the control indicator continues flashing, attempt to start the engine using the spare key and seek the assistance of a workshop.

See 2009 Owners Manual at the link below.

Check the injectors. One of them may be stuck open.

Not sure here as to the type as some have a bolt in the block in line with the crank and special tool is used to locate TDC ,If the timing belt broke then you have bent valves anyway so the head will have to come off .If you reply with more details then i will advise how to do it with no timing marks also is this a common rail with just a high pressure pump or is it a intermediate with injector pump but the injectors having electronic sensor on one of the injectors if that makes sense to you

A similar thing happend to me turns out it was the idle rev cold switch thing>
basically the switch which provides more fuel and revs when the car is cold, so that when you start the car it doesnt just die off.
the switch itself is a bit mechanical and is perhaps jammed on the full on position. If it happens more when the car heats up. then it is this switch.

what you can do is start your car one cold morning and see how high the revs are, if its still high then its probablly not the switch

Fuel pump or fuel injectors may be dead . Can you hear the pump buzz when cycling the key on and off ?

This sounds like it could be an Air bag fault,DO NOT ATTEMPT to replace the airbag yourself as they are operated by a small explosive charge and unless you know what you are doing they can cause serious injury.Airbags should be replaced every 10 years,the only safe option is if you have access to an OBD II Fault code reader this will diagnose any faulty sensors on the vehicle.
If the Air bag is faulty you will need to have it replaced professionally at your local Garage/Dealer

If the mileage on the car is high it might be the clutch pressure plate going U/S and need to be replaced. It can also be (if fitted) the cable between the pedal and gearbox going bad and sticky. (If the car has hydraulic clutch activation it will obviously not have a cable.)
