ESC and Engine Light
Hello all

What happened this morning was that during acceleration the car (Astra J 1.6) behaved like misfiring, acceleration was slow and car was "Jerking" then Electronic Stabilization Control lit got on and Engine Light started to blink. After acceleration the car was running normally and idling normally both light went off.  Next time when accelerating same happened again I do not know yet which lit came first on and which one first off - can check later. No codes found in engine section. What could this be?
Quite common is the coil packs on the petrol's.

In terms of error code what are you using to read the codes as alot of code readers are useless.

I had a similar problem with my 1.6 manual Astra, I changed the spark plugs which cured the fault.
but as rusty says the coil packs are a known weak spot.
retrofitted = DAB+, GM dog guard, GM reversing camera
