Hi I am a new driver and have just bought a Vauxhall Corsa 2001 (y) 1.2 comfort.
I have driven it for 3 days and on friday evening it would not start. the engine was turning over but not firing up. the gauges on the dash were all at 0 including the fuel but the tank is full. i tapped the dash and these all moved. after several attempts it started.
yesterday morning it started fine but in the afternoon same problem - many attempts before it fired up.

I have done a diagnostic the code is 1616 which im not sure if i can fix myself?

Any ideas what is wrong and how much this will cost?

Also when it is started could it cut out while i am driving?

Any help would be really great. :)

got a comfort 1.0 2002 model.

I think its got to do with a wiring problem behind the dash.

what works for me is to bang the dash with my fist a few times so the connection goes back in. this will work

when you go over bumps to fast it might get lose again.

a permanent fix is to put a sponge behind the wiring.

as long as you don't stall or cut it off it will stay on.

the first time it happened to me was at a traffic light and I switched the engine off. big mistake it wouldn't start again. it was embarassing. got it started eventually though

Pins in back of clocks suffer from bad contact.

Bend pins for better contact
