Hi,

Mine came on for a few seconds for the first time this morning. The car seems to be fine. I have a 2017 version which according to people in the forum have an updated engine, meaning the piston problem has been fixed. Also, the car took a little longer to start than usual then the service esc came on for a few seconds.

Service ESC doesnt mean engine problem all the time.

Hi all,

So 'Service ESC' stands for 'Service/Repair Electronic Stability Control'. It's telling you there is a fault with the Electronic Stability Control. It's a vehicle module monitored issue that tracks whether a problem with the car is potentially causing an issue with the car skidding on ice/water. It will trigger in normal conditions if there is a fault with the engine resulting in a loss of power or torque. 9 times out of 10 it's the ignition coil in a petrol engine but with the turbocharged Astra's a larger proportion of issues relate to piston failure due to Low Speed Pre-Ignition.

Book in at a dealer if you have ever had this on the dashboard.

Just got mine back and as mentioned by wba- kol it was the battery that was almost flat?. Strange one that!. Anyway they have charged it up and I'll see how it goes. If it happens again I'll be demanding a new battery.
Thanks for all your help guys much appreciated

Hi all
Had to take the car back after the battery failed again. This time they have changed the battery and re- programmed the BCM. Really praying that’s this issue sorted now?. This car is becoming very unreliable as I’ve had to have quite a few things fixed on it now.
