    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone can tell me what this particular light is that has come on, on my dash... its orange, I don't really know how to describe the shape as i dont know what it represents but a coupe of people i've asked seem to thinks its a gearbox or transmission light! Does anyone know what the problem might be if this light is coming on?
    It started a couple of days after i'd had my car back from the garage having had a new head gasket, i dont know if the light is related at all,
    Any ideas...

    Thanks

    Take it back to the garage that did the work and ask them to investigate. Give them a fair chance to sort it before taking further action as necessary.

    Definitely sounds like engine management light - particularly if it looks like this:

    Get it to a garage - will need to go on diagnostics to tell you what the problem is.

    Most likely a sensor problem, maybe disconnected or knocked out of alignment after the HG work - what Engine is the Corsa in question?

    I had the exact same light coming on in my Corsa.

    Had to spend £300 getting some Co2 sensor replaced!

    Go get it checked out.
