    Not sure if anyone knows but you can reset your service inspection lamp on your Vectra C, Astra H and Corsa C & D with out the aid of any diagnostic tools.
    Simply press the trip reset button on the dash at the same time press the brake pedal then switch on the ignition, keep brake and trip pressed for 10 to 12 seconds and hey presto its done!! If you already knew that i will go back and crawl into my shell:bananasmi

    Yes, that's how it works on my 2003 Astra, but I don't have to press the brake pedal, but I do have to switch the ignition on and then off twice while holding in the trip button down.

    Had the INSP light come on my 05 Astra SRI - already had a mechanic round to try and reset it using the methord of holding down the trip switch (with no joy) I have just tried holding down the trip at the same time as pressing the brake pedal (as suggested in the link above)- and joy of joys its worked!

    Cheers

    Try it without pressing the brake pedal. Your Astra might be one of the ones where it wasn't yet necessary to do so.

    That Service Light is there for a reason.

    Obviously the idea is to have the service done and then reset the light.

    But there are bound to be some sellers (not Forum members, of course :shake) who'll just reset the light to get rid of it.

    So, beware! :think

    On the Astra there are various INSP warning messages.

    INSP2 = faulty bulb (unless you've got check control which will display which bulb it is in the stereo display)
