    Hi I have an old 2006 banger of an astra which I use for half year when I'm in the UK, otherwise it just sits on the drive. The last couple of years the Turbo would cut out randomly when driving, and when to get it working again I just had to turn off the car and on again. But this year I got...

    HI folks. Does anyone know what the P003A fault code means ?? This is the only fault coming up after using an OBD reader. Car appears to be operating normally but as I've only just bought it (and the code was recently cleared before I bought it) I feel I should get it checked out. Any advice...
