    Hi
    When driving the car sometimes the Control Indicator for engine electronics
    comes on, this is the picture of a car with a spanner in the dashboard.
    When it lights up the car sort of stutters for a split second then drives
    normally but with reduced power, ie. accelerates more slowly. When the light
    is not on the car drives perfectly.
    If I turn ignition off then restart the car it goes out, it does this
    everytime, I now just turn ignition off and on quickly when on a straight
    road without stopping to remedy this.
    It mostly comes on when trying to accelerate past moving vehicles but not
    all the time. It may do it a couple off times in a day then not for a week
    or more.
    When it was lit I put a fault reader on the car ( OBDII) which reported no
    faults.
    Can anyone please shed any light on what could be wrong and how to remedy
    this.
    Would it be worth taking to Vauxhall garage or would they find nothing
    wrong if it wasn't showing a fault at the time.
    Regards
    Pete
