Can't say it's crossed my mind! I did read about disconnecting the battery but I don't know if I'm just masking the issue rather than fixing it?
That's useful thanks, did the check too and yes mine is also a recall (surely I should have been informed by vauxhall rather than finding out via a forum?)I haven't heard anything from Vauxhall or the dealer I bought the car from, or my local dealer. I heard about the recall here! I googled it, and found two different government websites, one which searched by reg number and said there was a recall, but didn't say for what, and another that asked for the make and model and said two recalls, one for the BMS and another for the ECU, both just needing software updates. Turns out if the air con has an issue, it will crash the whole system, and the car will stop and won't move again. The other one might be for the traction system failure error, which seems fairly common and is easily cleared by a powercycle, just like any computer.
I'm still using the car, it's fine now.
