  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] Idles but won't rev at all

    My wife's car has not been used for 4 days, she just reversed out of the drive into the road, wheels on full lock put into 1st gear, car will not rev, just idling, cannot turn steering.
    After a while, turned off ignition took keys out. Put keys in started again, car fine, drove away. Any ideas ?

    What year and model? Sounds like a bad connection on the electronics or possibly a battery voltage issue.

        Just hope it was a random glitch then. Keep an eye on the battery voltage just to make sure it's holding a good charge, if it wasn't used for a few days and glitched straight after starting it's always worth checking the battery voltage is holding steady. Should read at least 12.5v with the engine off, and around 14v with the engine running.
