What ever came of this? We just threw a P000A ourselves today. What were the symptoms along with the fault?

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Check engine light on code p000a

I have a check engine light, abs light, and traction control light all on. It's been in the shop they said it was because of a abs sensor, and they ordered it. That was a week and a half ago. I drove it today and when I started it the speedo went from 0-60 a couple times, radio got louder and quieter and it beeped at me a few times. When driving along in either 1st or 2nd it would feel almost as though the traction control was on and it was sensing that it was slipping. Like it wouldn't give me any power at all, at the same time the radio was getting louder and quieter. When the brakes were applied you can hear the abs but I was on clear pavement, not ice. It's just acting really funny lately, hopefully that abs sensor will cure it all, but it seems to be more than that. Anyone else experience a similar situation?

That sounds like you need an exorcist not a mechanic, good luck and let us know what it gets traced to?

All sequentially fuel injected engines use both.

Batch fuel injection requires crank sensor only (all injectors open at once)

I dont have a code, but my Astra has been in and out of the shop since about 4000 miles. Cam sensor has been replaced at least 3 times. I lose power sometimes for no reason, Dealer cannot figure out what is wrong. Plus I have had numerous other problems.

Mine did just the same but they told me it was a speed sensor and thermostat (no relation.) They ordered the parts but as some of you know, they never made it to the car since i got hit like a week later when the parts were due to arrive! even still in emergency mode, whether thats what its called or not, it all stopped acting up. the abs and check engine lights went off.
