1995 Holden Barina SB 1.4 from Australia and New Zealand
Revs high on start up. Any help with the fault would be good.
Not a bad car, very slow & takes a while to get to speed, but when there it's OK.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Coolant temperature sensor worked for me. The one that talks to the electronic control unit.

Just wondering if anyone can help me? I have an auto 1995 Barina, and recently I have been having a few issues with it.
The two main ones are that whilst driving, the 'S' button on the dash will start to flash. Whilst flashing, the car has hardly any acceleration, which leads me to having to turn it off and restart the car. On occasions this will continue to happen within a short amount of time. Each day I warm my car up for at least 5 minutes (when hot and cold outside) as I have had other issues with the car stalling when I am driving and stop (i.e. at a red light, stop sign).
The other issue is when I have the lights on at night, both the dash and the head lights will become quite bright, and then fade back to normal. This will continue to happen throughout the time I am driving. Whilst the lights become brighter, the car loses acceleration until they fade back to normal. This is quite annoying, as cars in front of me think that I am flashing them.
Hope someone can help me with my problem.

I have had the same problem with the flashing Sport light.
I found that the difference between D and 3rd is small, and it only flashed while I was in 3rd.

We have been having the same problem with our car for quite some time with the 'S' light flashing and starting off in third gear.
We also have problems with the fuel gauge giving an incorrect reading, speedometer reading about 5-10km over the actual speed and the outside temperature gauge not working.
We took it to a Holden dealer who could not find any faults.
