The car has a 54 plate and is a 1.9 cdti.

Only just purchased the car so don't know whats happened. We did get

a reduction on the price because the seller knew wasn't working. The car had a new battery and a service before we picked it up.

Hello again Barry -

Thank you for your reply - Im sorry I just missed you last eve.. I was late off.

I asked because in a certain year range, these did have problems with the unit - doing as you described but I just needed to be sure.

Basically its an internal fault in the unit - nothing can be done on a DIY basis Im afraid... On the later ones , Vauxhall would entertain claims for this issue - it may still be worth you contacting your local Vauxhall dealer - put it to them - If they will claim for you through Vauxhall, thats the way to do it - through the local dealer. It would be worth asking as they treat all on their own merits.

Other than that - the unit would have to be repaired, or replaced. There are many radio / system repairers that advertise on google etc - you could choose one of those - unless of course you have a local repair place... but I would suggest to contact Vauxhall first before you do anything - then go from there, depending on the outcome of that.

Im sorry there is no way to fix it on your own as it were - again - its a common fault with them - so thats the best advice as above on this one now to get this sorted one way or the other for you..

Let me know if you need anything else..
