What does code p1113 indicate on vauxhall astra?

P1113 Port Deactivation Position Sensor Circuit High Voltage . (as per TIS) there are 2 possible codes one for hi volts and one for lo volts, check all your wiring and the connector on the B1_Y21B Sensor - Twinport Position
Wiring harness connector (underneath the inlet manifold)



P1113 code Vauxhall, I have this as the Port Deactivation Position Sensor.

This is a 3 pin sensor mounted to the inlet manifold twinport rail so the ECU can determine the flaps position.

The sensor is tucked up under the manifold and is a little tricky to get to.

It is also essentially the same sensor as the TPS used in older pre-electronic throttle control Vauxhalls such as single point injection Astra-F and Corsa-B models.

Not had one fail yet, but of course it could be at fault.

I have seen the wiring for it chafed through on the actuating rail from poor LPG installations, including the standard Vauxhall conversion! If fitted.

I would also be checking for seized/worn flaps or rail disconnection.

Incidentally, the lower inlet manifold section (incorporating flaps) comes with a pre-installed sensor.

The sensor is mounted at the opposite end of the manifold to the actuating solenoid but it is not clearly marked.

When ordering don't be surprised that it is a complete manifold that they offer you, complete with everything. Not sure of price but I think it's around £80.00.

Can a DIY change the windscreen on a 1996 Vauxall Astra and how?

welll if there is rubber around the window u might do it but hard if its bonded u are at nothing take my advice get it done the labour is only about 50euro Yes This Is Correct. You Can Change A Bonded Screen DIY But It Does Take A Lot Of Care And You Need The Right Tools. Damage Can Be Caused If Removed Wrongly. Same Applies If You Use A Second Hand One You Need To Clean The Old Bonding Fully. It Would Be Quicker And Cheaper To Pay The Excess On Your Insurance And Get A Pro To Do It.

How to repair Astra seatbelts?

I hope you never have an accident in a car,but if you do,would you want to trust your life to an amateur repair on a seatbelt?Don't even think about it,buy new.

  • Most vauxhalls from around the mid-nineties had pyrotechnic (explosive)seat belt tensioners which activated like an airbag would to keep you in your seat.You need to know how to deal with these.Don't go there.

This Is True They Do Have Explosives In Them. You Need A Licence To Repair Or Remove The Pretensioner. It Will Also Fail The MOT If Repaired. A Deactivator Is Normally Attached To The Pretentioner By A Cable. It Is A Red Clip Looking Thing. Most Garages Take Them Off As They Loose Them.

Never try to repair seat belts, or belt locks. If it's broken, replace it. End of.

Of course, you can try to repair them, but I wish you best of luck when you exit your car through the windscreen at 30Mph due to a bodged repair to a non-serviceable item.

How do you change a cam belt on a Vauxhall Vectra 2.0 cdi?

There are several posts already in this forum which may help you.If this is not the case,you should post again with more details,particularly the X*** number for your engine and the year.CDI is really an equipment level indicator.The operation varies,depending on age and whether 8V or 16V,I can't tell from the info provided.Sorry.

If it's a diesel (which Cdi suggests it is), it's quite likely it is cam-chain, and hence will not need to be changed on a regular/scheduled basis.

How do you change a vauxhall zafira wing mirror?

On the inside of the door there is a triangular trim, in the same place the mirror is on the outside.

Wind the window down, grasp the trim, and pull it off, pulling away from the door.

It will be stiff, and you may break the trim removing it.

It also goes slightly under the main door trim pad, so will require some manoeuvring to remove.

Also the trim may have a speaker for the stereo in it.

Once the trim is removed you will see 3 Torx headed screws that hold the mirror to the door.

2 are easy to remove, the 3rd is a pig to get to without removing the whole door trim.

(It can be done, if you undo the 2 easy ones first, and use a 1/4" drive ratchet with male Torx bit to undo the hard to get one, but you run the risk of dropping the tools/screw into the door! Then you have to remove the door trim anyway.)

Reassembly is the reverse of removal, but you may need some white clips to re-attach the internal trim, as they break easily.

Is the Opel Astra a good vehicle?

Opel astra is an excellent , stable ,fast and very strong car .

But there is one problem I as an owner found ,it's that opel astra is slow a bit in low gears ( first and second ) but in high gears it's very fast and stable in high speeds.

How do you put your code into your radio on your Vauxhall if it is in safe mode?

1. turn ignition on (dash warning lights on)

2. If radio turned on, turn it off.

3. Press AS button in, and hold it in while turning radio on.

4. Wait approx 10 seconds (do not release AS button).

5. Radio should beep, and display should now read 10 - - - - (assuming no tries have been made in the past with the wrong code)

6. use pre-set button "1" to scroll the first digit in the display to the number you want (it goes 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 then back to 0)

7. Use pre-set "2" for second digit, etc.

8. Once display reads 10 followed by the four digit security code press and hold AS button for about 10 seconds, until the radio beeps.

9. If correct code entered display will now read "code" briefly, followed by"memory-U" briefly, then radio will reprogram it self.

10. If radio goes back to "safe" the code number is incorrect, or you mis-keyed it.

Note: entering the code incorrectly 10 times will render the radio useless.

After the first 3 tries you need to leave the radio on and the ignition on for increasingly long periods of time before it will let you try again. 7 safe need you to wait at least 30 mins, and more like 1 hour.

How easy is it to fit bigger engines into Astra vans?

You shouldn't have too much of a problem fitting a bigger engine as long as you have done your research. Find out where the engine mountings are positioned on the engine and vehicle. The main problem you will face is finding and engine that matches these engine mounts. If you find one make sure it runs off the same fuel. Do not change the engine if it runs off LPG. This would have to be done by the experts. You will either need to make or find an adapter for the bell-housing (gearbox). Other then these two set backs there should not be too much of a problem. If you are unsure of how to do this however please get a mechanic to do it as you may need to extend the body work if the wrong engine is chosen.

Where is the fuse box in a 52 registrated astra?

hi you should have a small glove box just to the right of the steering wheel, open this up you will see four quarter turn screw heads the best way to get at these is to remove the glove box,( to do this press both sides inwards it will drop down and out ) use a large screw driver or a two pence and turn to the left (i think ) you will then be able to see your fuse board.

Hope this helps Cheers Paul.
