IGNITION ISSUES WITH ASTRA AND CORSA MODELS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN 2004 AND 2010

  • Ignition failure after battery replacement
  • Ignition failure after charging up a flat battery
  • Diagnosis brings up one or more of these fault codes:
  • P1632 – Wrong transponder key
  • P1678 – Engine Control Module identification failure
  • P1679 – Wrong equipment identifier received: Body Control Module
  • B3114 – Remote key not synchronised
  • B3925 – Wrong equipment identifier received: Instrument Cluster
  • B3929 – Wrong equipment identifier received: Airbag Module
  • B3977 – Wrong equipment identifier received: Engine Control Module
  • Management light blinking continuously

The Body Control Module is responsible for multiple functions on the vehicle – the immobiliser, remote central locking, windscreen wipers, headlights, indicators etc.

The Engine Control Module is responsible for monitoring and controlling all major aspects of the engine – fuel, air, ignition.

The Instrument Cluster contains your speedometer, rev counter and dash warning lights.

The Airbag Module is a safety module controlling your airbags.

WHAT THE SPANNER WARNING LIGHT MEANS

The warning light on your Astra or Corsa lights up when the ignition is switched on, and should turn off within just a few seconds. If it stays on or lights up while the engine is running it indicates a fault within either the engine or the transmission management system, and could cause the powertrain to run in “emergency” or “limp home” mode.

OUR SOLUTION

Our advanced dealer-level diagnostic and programming equipment means we can reprogram and realign the immobiliser modules in your Vauxhall, either at one of our London or Milton Keynes workshops, or on the road anywhere in London and the Home Counties.

The car will also store some or all of the following fault codes:

  • P1632 – Wrong Transponder Key
  • P1678 – ECM (Engine Control Module) Identification Failed
  • P1679 – Wrong Environment Identifier Received BCM (Body Control Module)
  • B3114 – Remote Key Not Synchronised
  • B3925 – Wrong Environment Identifier Received IPC (Instrument Cluster)
  • B3929 – Wrong Environment Identifier Received SDM (Airbag)
  • B3977 – Wrong Environment Identifier Received ECM (Engine Control Module)

IGNITION PROBLEM – SOLVED

This often happens when you’re trying to start your Vauxhall when it’s got a flat battery.
Fixing it requires Tech 2 Vauxhall diagnostics to reset and reprogramme the Body Control Module so it synchronises with all the other vehicle security modules.
We have genuine Tech 2 diagnostics, so we can fix these problems for you in no time at all - just like we’ve done for many other happy Vauxhall owners.

  • BCM – The Body Control Module is responsible for multiple functions on the vehicle – the immobiliser, remote central locking, windscreen wipers, headlights, indicators etc…
  • ECM – The Engine Control Module is responsible for monitoring and controlling all major aspects of the engine – fuel, air, ignition etc…
  • IPC – The Instrument Cluster contains your speedometer, rev counter and dash warning lights (the part behind your steering wheel).
  • SDM – The Airbag Module is a safety module controlling your airbags.
How do I fix the problem?

Genuine Tech 2 Vauxhall diagnostics are needed to fix this issue. The BCM (Body Control Module) must be reset and reprogrammed to match the other security modules within the vehicle.

Does the vehicle need to go to a main dealership?

Absolutely not! We’re equipped with genuine Tech 2 Vauxhall diagnostic equipment, so we can solve this problem for you in no time at all – like we’ve already done for many happy Vauxhall owners before now.
