  ECO Button tesla style screen
Posted by: johnaros - 4:th-Dec-2019, 23:51:42 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Howto's - No Replies

Hello! My tesla style screen arrived today and i plan to connect it over the weekend, the problem is it doesn't have an ECO button..i watched a video on youtube of a Russian guy wiring it to the Parktronics button(my Astra doesn't have that) and i am planning to do the same. But just to be sure where to connect the blue and where the black wire does anyone know the pin layout on the original Parktronics plug?

Posted by: ChrisKnottIns - 2:nd-Dec-2019, 18:19:49 - Forum: Chris Knott Insurance - No Replies

POTENTIAL NEW CUSTOMERS: Tell us when you're going to want your next quote and we'll remember so you don't have to.

Hi, did you know there are two ways you can schedule a call back from us via our website?

We know some members forget to include Chris Knott when they're looking for car insurance quotes even though they fully intended to. We've fixed that for you with these two options:

On our brief web form you can log your renewal month with us NOW and we'll call you at the right time to offer a quote - then you don't have to remember to call us! Give us your renewal month now to put the ball in our court and guarantee that you'll get a CK quote when the time comes (even if it's 11 months away) - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.. Obviously, you don't need to do this if you're already insured with CK as we'll automatically invite your renewal about 21 days early.

You can also schedule a quote call back for any time in the next 3 days by using our web widget that pops up when you're on certain pages of our website such as You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.. You'll be able to choose the day and the 15-minute time slot that suits you. You can also use it to trigger an instant call from us (well, within 27 secs or so). Great huh?

Please remember to mention this forum when you speak to us so we can make sure we quote you under our special car clubs/enthusiasts facility.

If you'd prefer to call us you can on 0800 917 2274.

  GTC Thermostat and housing
Posted by: Eve26 - 22:nd-Nov-2019, 20:07:23 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - No Replies

Hi guys

My car has a small coolant leak, the fan is on when I am driving (not overheating though) and the service car soon message has appeared on the dash.  The garage says its the thermostat and housing which I need, which I had worked out too after googling the issues.  I don't want to get fleeced by Vauxhall again after just shelling out £850 on an exhaust so looking to buy one from elsewhere.

Can you knowledgeable lot advise if this is what I a looking for?  I put my reg in and it says it fits my car (1.6 Turbo SRI)

Many thanks

  Accelerator pedal position sensor
Posted by: Marabene77 - 20:th-Nov-2019, 16:26:43 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (1)

Hello everyone
I need advice on the accelerator. Last year, probably in May, we encountered an emergency, the diagnostics found a fault in the accelerator position sensor. I had it replaced and everything was fine. This year we jumped twice the same thing. Unfortunately, there was no time to deal with it, so the bug just cleared up and gave it some time. Today again error, but unfortunately the diagnostics could not correct the error. I didn't think it was possible for these sensors to go so fast. Will there be a mistake elsewhere? In foreign forums, I read that it helped clean the contacts on the control unit and the fuse box. Has anyone encountered this problem?
The car is Astra J 1,7 cdti 81 kw
I'm sorry for my English

  Loss of power
Posted by: joeh98 - 20:th-Nov-2019, 12:37:58 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (2)

Hi all,

Last night i was driving my GTC 1.4t down the dual carriageway after cruising for about 30miles, came up to a roundabout and went to accelerate up to speed... Next to no response from engine, car flashed up saying "Service Vehicle Soon" and takes forever to get up to any speed above 20mph. Dangerous for joining Dual Carriageway on my journey to work so i have had to change my route to compensate. 

Car can get up to speed (had it up to 70mph last night), but just takes an age to get there.

I got home, cleaned the air filter, the MAF, checked the oil (was low) and have topped up but car is still under performing.

I have done some Googling to little avail. 

I have ordered some oil, an oil filter and an OBD scanner to 'service' and check everything on the weekend but i was just wondering if any has experienced/heard of this before and had any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

  A16SHT Intercooler Upgrade
Posted by: MCG1983 - 19:th-Nov-2019, 23:22:22 - Forum: Mechanical - Replies (1)

Hi, I can't find any aftermarket parts online at all for my car.

It's the 200ps 1.6T version of the Astra J GTC, engine code A16SHT.

Can anybody tell me if an intercooler kit designed for the 180ps GTC, A16LET will fit the A16SHT?

Thanks, Steven
