Started, Won't start, started..then engine management light and due for a service lights... ideas??
2004 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Design Manual

hi, yesterday my car started fine in the morning, then on my lunch i went to start it and it made a churn noise and it wouldnt start, i got greenflag out and he said it was my starter motor. I bumped it off and got it home ok and had to move it twice whilst at home, 1st time i moved it it started fine, second time just made a churn noise but didnt start, i tried it again and it started ok but had the due for a service light on.... This morning it started first time with no due for a service light but a engine management light... its starting ok now but am unsure if i need to get anything fixed or if it playing about? Any ideas would be great !! cheers !!

Your starter motor is deinately on the way out, the churning noise is the motor struggling to turn over the engine and this in turn is producing what your car thinks are faults so its lighting up your engine management indicator.

Get it changed before it lets you down for good...
the starter motors on the corsas are not that common for problems but still get the car to the nearest vauxhall dealer and and they will plug in there diagnostics and resolve the problem and you will have a result to what the cause is
