    Clutch Performance Warning

    Forum Key Rings
    I regularly get a warning message up on the dash related to the clutch "Reduced Clutch Performance. Reduce Clutch Use". This typically comes up when in 5th or 6th gear and accelerating. It also happens if in cruise control and speeding up using the steering wheel controls. When the error message comes up I can feel the car drag and then pick up again.

    I have taken my car to a Vauxhall dealer and they claim they have never heard of the error message and don't know what it means. I did suggest that they asked the manufacturer as they actually built the car and would have programmed the error codes. However I have been told there is nothing that they can do!

    There is definitely a fault and I am worried that the clutch is going to give up on me. Any ideas?

    I also have a problem with 3 of the tyres on the TPMS. The pressures are OK but all state that there is a fault. Also the traffic sign camera keeps telling me it is obstructed and I have also had faults from the parking sensors and on one occasion I lost the digital display altogether!#

    I have a 2018 Insignia TechNav 1.6 diesel. It has done 14K miles but the fault with the clutch started almost immediately.

    As Dave has said, never heard of this with the clutch and I've been with the forum from the start. My advice would be next time the message pops up take a pic straight away b4 it’s disappeared. Otherwise they think it all in your head. Then show it to the dealer. If a message pops up like that I would have thought it likely that an error code would be logged. Did Vauxhall scan the car for for errors? The car is under warranty so let the dealer sort out the faults with the TPMS, Traffic camera and parking sensors. Did you buy this from a Vauxhall dealer? It hasn't been in an accident has it?

    Reduced Clutch Performance

    Hired a Vauxhall Insignia today and first trip on motorway and totally agree with below post. Reduced Clutch Perfomance. Reduced Clutch Use happened about 4 times. It is happening when you accelerate hard in higher gears 5th and especially 6th sonappears to be some clever software that is looking at torque! I have had this same story with Vauxhall for many of my company cars where faults happen but donít log and they look at you like you are mad.

    So to reiterate, absolutely word for word as the guy below says on an 18 plate Enterprise rental turbo diesel insignia.

    The description of the clutch issue is identical to my problems with a hire 18 plate insignia, word for word and warning I have experienced this today and was searching for the fault online when I found this thread. Driven Vauxhallís for 29 plus years and find the more advanced they get the less the dealerships believe an ever increase list of software messages they donít believe. I feel for the guy, I can take mine back but what an annoying fault or feature.

    Had this problem with mine, the dealer re-programmed the clutch position sensor and it's been fine since.
