I’ve got a 54 plate 1.7 CTDI Astra which I’ve been having problems with recently. It’s been cutting out when driving, the batter light will come on and I have to try pull it over. It will still turn over after it has cut out but doesn’t start for about 10 minutes. After it has started it will drive fine but will cut out at any time. Anyone able to help??

Could be a failing crank sensor, it will fail when hot and not start working again until the sensor cools down, they suffer from heat soak, have you had it scanned for fault codes or try the pedal trick.

No I haven’t got round to having it scanned yet, is there anything I can check to confirm that the sensor is faulty? & what is the pedal trick?
