Brought car off gumtree 2days later flashing f came up won't start anyone know what I can do took it to the mechanic he just said get rid of it easier said than done when 700 pound down and no money for a new car can someone please help
Car: Vauxhall Meriva Variant: 1.6 design Model Year: 2006
Bad news and usually expensive when that appears . Common failure of the Vauxhall Meriva Easytronic clutch actuator will prevent the engine from starting and will display the 'F' warning message on the gear display. When trying to diagnose the fault on the vehicle scan tools will reveal fault codes for actuator malfunction, position control error and parameter issues.
Thank you so much for your response it is the clutch Actuator the mechanic tole me the code but didn't seem to want to fix it, am I better off just getting rid of the car then? or is there a possibility of getting it fix or would it just cost me a fortune? I'm gutted thank you
Sorry I forgot to add the mechanic cleared the code so I was able to drive car home it was working then my partner fiddled with the sunroof and code came back on so that made me think is it the clutch or could it be the electrics probably sounds mad as I have no idea about cars but thought it was odd. Could that cause the f to come up or am I wishful thinking that it could be something as easy as that?
