BK (Hatchback) R+ Auto

Wondering what experience others have had with turnaround under warranty. Under 2 yo Astra r+ has so far had confirmed blown piston and cracked piston head - currently investigating whether its damaged the bore - to which Ive been told thisll mean a full engine replacement (26k on the engine!!). Im pushing for a courtesy car because Im stuck 30ks from the service centre with 3 kids and no car. while Im giving the dealer the chance to get things done (they havent finished their warranty process yet - but Ive been told their warranty lady goes on leave tomorrow) Im worried if I dont start to push Ill be stuffed for at least another week. Would appreciate some guidance on a way to expedite the process - no doubt Holden hasnt even had anything through from the dealer as yet.

Don't worry about the ticking sound mate, that just a purge valve, they all make that sound.
As for your other problem, it could be anything, I would just monitor for the time being.

If you have any trouble you can get a scan tool connected to the ECU, to see if it has logged any fault codes.

Could be starter motor. Cheapest solution would be to get a mobile Auto Electrician to do an onsite diagnosis

Holden Astra auto 2007...triangular hazard light seems to be on all the time...not flickering tho, just bright red...?

3 answers

Adrian

When you say triangle light are you looking at the hazard button on the dash that is a triangle button that illuminates ,for hazard lights in emergency situation.

Or are you seeing a light with a little car and a spanner through the car ?

This can indicate that your engine management system has picked up on a fault which could be many things.

Most commonly coil pack on the Astra or crank position sensor or cam position sensor. Can be 02 sensor but rare.

Need’s to be taken to a workshop who can read the fault code so they can trace it back to the faulty component.

Hope this helps...

Adrian
Adrian

Hazard button you press to turn hazards on but spanner light will be on your cluster where the speedometer is and rev meter..

It's the hazard button above radio. I rang a Holden dealer n they said it's bright whilst driving all the time n only a problem if it's flickering. Thankyou both, much appreciated. Rachel

Can I change sides of indicator and wiper stalks?
Hi, I have a 2002 HOLDEN Astra CD (I think), Auto TS 4-door Sedan, Petrol, 1.8litre, Z18XE14, 16v DOHC, MPFI, 90 KW; can I change over the stalks on the steering column so that the indicator stalk is on the RIGHT and wipers stalk is on LEFT?
Thanks.

I don’t think you can in the TS Model.

Like the VW Golf the indicator is on the opposite side like optioned for europe .

Only the AH Astra they changed it in.

Hi Adrian,
Thanks for the info; guess I'll just have to remember NOT to indicate with my windscreen wipers!!

2006 ah astra. Just replaced the radio with a unit from another ah astra. I have the vin from the car I got it from. How do I get the radio code?

It needs to be unmarried from that Vin with tech2 software of opcom.

Then it will need to be married to your vin.

Unfortunately you may have to contact Holden or get on a Astra forum and someone may have a scanned they can help you with to do what is mentioned above.

2003 astra auto, drives well, runs well, but sometimes when you put it in park and switch it off, it won't come out of park again, .......try a few times, press the brake, still nothing, ......it comes out of park eventually and drives really well...Don't know what's going on....

When you stop the car, place transmission in Neutral, apply hand brake and take your foot off the brake pedal. Once the handbrake is holding car , put transmission in Park. This way the handbrake holds the car & not the transmission
