    corsa wont start sometimes

    sometimes the car wont start after use. if was driven for 4miles left for 20mins and started back up it would stutter for abit then start. oil's ok all the usaul lights are on electrics ok petrol is half way. if i stop it then try again it goes straight away and will be fine untill the next time.

    How old is the car??

    Could be a loose connection.

    Maybe your battery is about to die?? Battery's don't like short journeys. It take about 10 miles of driving to recharge the battery fully after starting.

    BCM fault is my guess.

    Does the yellow spanner light flash when it fails to start?

    Body Control Module.

    Common problem on Corsa D/Grande Punto. Car sporadically doesn't start and yellow spanner light flashes. Eventually doesn't start at all and B1000 "replace ECU" code set in BCM. Needs reprogramming with the latest software and keys re-pairing, if that doesn't work, BCM must be replaced.

    I don't know if this is your problem or not. Check for the flashing spanner light next time it happens.

    It's one of the control modules, and part of the immobiliser.

    Remap won't make a difference.
