When I change down from either 3rd to 2nd or 5th to 3rd the electronic brake engages bringing the car to a stop, this does not happen all of the time but when it does it does it a lot, I called the RAC a chap came out and it done to him 3 times in about 150 yards he declared it unroad worthy and towed it to a Vauxhall maindealer who could not find a fault with it. Two days after I got it back its doing it again, any ideas anyone!

Suggested Solution

Probably not going to be much help but it does sound like a short circuit.
All I can suggest is brake all electrical connectors concerning the system and clean them with electrical contact cleaner.
Intermittent faults like these can be a bugger unless it's actually doing it at the time.
