UK Auto Repair Questions?
In what way are the indicators failing?
How old is this Corsa or year is it?
What have they checked or replaced so far upto this point? and what computer are they refering to the BCM? Comms or what?
Yes but what year is the corsa? Has the steering wheel been removed or column been worked on recently or prior to this fault?
let me look at a steering diagram and please reframe from spamming the thread with whats going or whats happening etc.. i will reply once i get a clearer picture of what i think is going on..
Ok... Well if the indicator isnt self cancelling as i persume that what your having trouble with..then that more likely the column itself.... The Corsa changed the type of indicator stalk so thats why i needed to know the year etc...the Corsa C's used the indicator stalk that had a small peg that comes out when the lever is lifted up or down to activate the indicators..once the steering wheel comes back round to centre..there is a ring that pushes the peg in on the switch thus flicks the indicator arm back to off.so thats more a mechanical problemon them they need to investigate...the other type on the Corsa D arm plugs into the COMMS unit..which essentially is the clockspring too.the steering wheel has to come off to replace that aswell as have it reprogrammed..if its not self cancelling on that then the problems likely internal of the COMMS unit..which is pretty unusual as nine times out of ten across indicators problems not working or self cancelling on Corsa's or too on other makes of Vauxhall in general .is down the indicator stalk itself..but considering its been replaced as far as your telling me..then they need to find out why the stalk isnt getting returned depending which type of stalk you have. when the steering wheel comes back to centre..so i wouldnt say thats a computer fault...
I see..ok well your will be the Corsa D then being 2011...I do know on these the way the stalk works... if you push down on the stalk lightly it will activate the indicator for a few seconds then turn its self off (used for lane changing). but if you push down harder or longer in that position it will stay on or till you turn the steering wheel to the point where it cuts off the indicator... I do know also that the COMMS unit,stalk control side within it can be problamatic sometimes..that the indicator stalk plugs into.....
Dealer is always the last resort taking older cars too as it always the most expensive route..i pretty sure any properly equiped independant garage could do just as gooder job and a reduced cost..as long as they had Tech 2 or Vaux.com diagnostics and know how to use then it might get repaired a little cheaper...maybe if the comms is deemed the problem have your garage look into getting remanufactured or repaired..pretty sure "BBA Reman" did them...they have a website..
No..thats would be if it was a Corsa C with block type indicator stalk it would be more mechanical side.. your is the newer Corsa D..which uses the COMMS .the indicator stalk basically just plugs into it..so the comms basically senses when the steering wheel centres and cancels it so it basically COMMS computer controlled im afraid.I suppose if they could check commands via live data on Tech 2 to see if the COMMS is working or not to self cancel or activate the indicators etc...Link below to BBA
No problem...Hope all gets sorted out for you... Also if you leave a rating for me on one of the answer posts it would be much appreciated..thank you
