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.

The fuel pump relay is an electronic component that is found on virtually all vehicles equipped with an internal combustion engine. It is often found in the fuse box located in the engine bay and functions as the primary electronic switch that controls power to the fuel pump.

No power to the fuel injectors can be caused by a few things. If the relays, fuses, and computer all check out then I would move on to looking at the engine management and fuel system. ... A no start condition can also be caused by a faulty fuel pump, or any of the associated components.
The injector fuse and relay are usually located in the relay box or power distribution center in the engine compartment. Fuses are used to protect various electrical circuits while supplying power to components. They help the fuel pump, fuel injection and computer systems from suffering a short circuit

I suggest you check with a repair manual or the dealer to ensure your car actually has a flasher relay - the flasher relay had been deleted from many of the GM Opel/Vauxhall range and replaced with a single black box that performs all the timing functions; flashers, wiper delay, interior lights, etc.

Many direction indicator faults can be caused by the hazard flasher switch, usually because of lack of use.

Ok, some obvious questions first.
1. Have you checked the bulbs - are they burned out? Inspect ALL the bulbs as (doubtful, however) if one burned out, it may be interfering with another.

2. Have you checked the fuses? Check the owners manual as there may be an additional fuse in the engine compartment for the lighting.

You need to go back to basics on it. You check the battery is fully charged and the 'holy trinity' when a car won't start. First is fuel, second is spark, third is air flow.
You've looked at the fuel system. Disconnect the negative lead on the battery.
Remove each spark plug, one at a time, and check their condition. Replace them All if you're not sure. If yours has a distributor and give the cap, rotor and points a good clean and check what condition they are in. Again replace them if your in doubt.
Next check your air filter. A dirty one can starve the engine of air flow. As usual, replace it if it looks dirty.
Hope this helps.

This is a common issue that happens because prolonged exposure to moisture can corrode the tailgate switch. This moisture can also seep into the lock sensor, so a thorough cleanup is necessary. It would be best to go to the dealer to fix this issue.

A broken serpentine belt leads to a sudden loss of power assist for the steering system, where the steering wheel all-of-a-sudden becomes very hard to turn. ... A broken serpentine belt stops the water pump from circulating coolant (antifreeze) through the cooling system, and the engine can overheat - anywhere!
