You need to have the fault code/s read with an OBDII reader. this will tell you what is wrong.

Disconnect positive terminal on battery, bridge the positive lead to earth for 2 - 3 seconds (this clears the codes) then reconnect.

Job done :o)

Corsa utility 1.4 failing to start and it is not giving a spark. it flashes the spanner light about 5 second after turning the key on please tell me what is the problem


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.

1.9 dti opel pick up wont start


It could be an Immobilizer fault, if the spanner /car light comes on.
If you have a spare key, try it
A Flashing spanner light normally means immobiliser fault hence the non-start. The spanner light left might just be an indication that it has stored the "wrong transponder" code.
Opel will have to clear this but you might need a CIM as well that is the bit that reads the key to allow it to start.
Try the spare key if you have one

On 1.7 DTi models, a defective solenoid in the pump can cause failure of the ECU due to excessive current draw causing components to burn out. but this *should* cause other fault codes to appear.

I have an opel corsa lite, Today I tried to switch...


You probably need a new battery. All cars require that the battery be replaced every 5-10 years. If you have AAA, they can come out and replace it for you. If not, you may have to get the car towed to the nearest auto shop.
