Breakdown call
Pressing the Black button (next to the SOS button),for more than 2 seconds connects you to a roadside assistance service provider.
Some can read the On-Board Diagnostics at the roadside. Most will trailer your car to a Vauxhall dealer.
I had the electric traction fault, but was able to drive home and later, to a Vauxhall repairer.

I eventually got the car home after the RAC took 4 hours to get to us. As usual, once the RAC arrived the car started and didn't show any errors. He plugged in his diagnosis computer and found about 30 fault codes.
The car was already booked into my local dealer on Monday for a software update so I asked them to look at this fault at the same time. Turns out the recommended fix for the fault I had was to update the cars software. Hopefully get the car back tomorrow as there were 16 modules that needed updating.

Had the same error come up again, three weeks after the software was updated by my local dealer. Oddly like before the car is already booked in tomorrow to have a wiring harness replaced in the door. I'm really loosing faith in this car even though I love driving it when it works.
I've been driving for 25 years and so far broken down 5 times, 3 times have been in this car.

Same error came up again today. This time it's been joined by "battery charge fault: stop the vehicle". Now waiting on the RAC to come and look at it which is estimated at 4.5hours!
Love the car but hate the unreliability
