  2. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction please, I have a 2015 64 plate 2.0 diesel insignia eco manual, when you have drive it for a while turn it off and try and restart it it wont start. All the lights come on as usual but it wont even crank over it's as if I'm trying to start it without putting my foot on the clutch pedal (which you have to do to start it) if I leave it for 20mins or so it then starts no issues at all. It's like it needs time to cool down but nothing seems hot the engine temp is fine can anyone help please if you do short journeys it's fine it's just when it's been driven from a while.

  5. Hello from southern Spain ,i have a insignia Sports tourer ,with a cosmo pack ,2.0 ltr cdti remapped 210hp and a few mods,
  6. Managed to alter headlights with adjusters on headlights no more getting flashed

  8. Have a look at the front lower arms and rear link arms. There is a rod that goes to a sencor on each. On my signum the passenger side likes to pop off and then either leaves the light sat on the floor or sky high after they set the selves when you turn them on.. You can ajust the lights like normal lights but remember to alter back once you find the issue.. Opcom tech2 or global tis software should find your issue
  9. No, the cleaner you need for the turbo is for the variable vanes on the turbine (hot side) and this is very caustic but does the job. Either of these two will do: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/INNOTEC-VARIABLE-VANE-TURBO-CLEANER-KIT/283742412523?epid=735246736&hash=item42105d9eeb:g:HYsAAOSwglJeHJJx https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Diesel-Engine-Turbo-Cleaner-Cures-Limp-Home-Mode-Variable-Vane-Turbos/152003334878?epid=1943810068&hash=item23641ad2de:g:lQ4AAOSwZ8ZW2O4l
  10. Hi I got some extreme egr cleaner from wynns incase egr was blocked aswell. Will that clean turbo aswell? The turbo is only 2 years old
  11. Hi Jules....welcome to the Forum If the seatbelt is in the rear then the boot is leaking, which is a common fault, but if its in the front then I don't know what that is? Has the car come from somewhere like Helston in Cornwall which floods regularly within the year....check the log book for previous owners Silicon spray is good for squeaky pedals usually
  12. Hi, I am considering buying a 2015 astra Sri 2.0 cdti and went to test drive it today. Pulled the seat belt out and it was mouldy and felt really damp. Is this a common issue and what would solve it?? I don't want to buy a car with issues if it's letting in water. Any advice also on the clutch pedal squeeking. Thanks Jules
  13. siggyv6cdti You're the Insignia expert....any ideas?
  14. There are cleaning solutions to clear out the carbon but the most efficient way is to drive it hard to get the engine hot and start to clear out the carbon which will take time but you can gradually build up the revs as the system will allow without going into limp home mode.

  16. Hi....welcome to the Forum If the headlamps are high then there is an issue with the ride height sensors which automatically adjust the level of the headlights when the suspension alters to avoid blinding other motorists. If one (or both) of the rear sensors is defective then this can cause the issue you are experiencing. Best to take it to a reputable garage who should be able to identify if there is an issue with the sensors Let us know how you get on with it
  17. Hi keep getting flashed headlights seem to high I bi xenon afl headlamps can I lower them my self or is it dealers only
  18. It keeps making like a short, loud humming noise, like it’s trying to apply the brakes or something? It only happens when you apply the handbrake but has started doing it repeatedly every few seconds. When you press on the foot brake it stops. The noise is coming from this part and it vibrates quite severely when it does it.
  19. This is a diagram of an HID setup (headlamp removed for ease of access) and it shows the ballast and the exciter which connects to the bulb
  20. Are you saying that an exciter is an integral part of a ballast, opposed to being a component external to the ballast, bulb, headlight unit, etc.?
  21. An exciter is a ballast resistor I would think but never heard it called that before Also, I have never heard of resetting warning lamps for bulbs either as this would occur in the system when a new bulb is fitted
  22. Yes, I had thought that one way of testing if a ballast is working is to swap it with the ballast on the other side. However, what is putting me off doing this is that it necessitates removing the front bumper off and then of course later re-attaching the bumper, which may be easy for some people to do, but not necessarily easy for me to do. How would a garage test whether a ballast is working. One garage suggested that the problem could be with the "exciter", although I have not managed to establish what an "exciter" is. Also, a Vauxhall main dealer suggested that lights need resetting after fitting a new bulb, although they did not provide any more information, nor have I heard before of any requirement to have to reset lights after fitting new bulbs.
  23. It looks like a breather pipe going into it What's wrong with it
  24. Have you thought of swapping the ballast from one side to the other to prove the wiring and connections are okay.
  25. Hi....welcome to the Forum It sounds like the turbo variable vanes are gummed up. If you drive the car around locally and not take on long runs then this can occur.
  26. Certainly looks stylish enough Still sunny here in Dorset, long way from here now then?
  27. It would probably be the same for the Astra, AndyR
