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 advanced dealer-level diagnostic and programming equipment means we can reprogram and realign the immobiliser modules in your Vauxhall, at your address
The car will also store some or all of the following fault codes:
- P1632 – Wrong Transponder Key
- P1678 – ECM (Engine Control Module) Identification Failed

- B3114 – Remote Key Not Synchronised
