stop being negative,
look at it on a positive note
you'd have spent 1600 ? for wishbones and belt,then get another bill for the missfire etc ,sorting the gaskets
now you can adjust your plans to know everything is good ,breathers,coil packs,belt replaced,wishbones etc and still be under your original budget
plus you will know for sure it has been done and all is good
(my stamped history said plugs changed several times,found out that was bull by spending a little time doing it all myself)
chin up and crack on

Your reader might not do all ECUs.  So get a set of schematics from somewhere, and pour over them.  Pretty certain you can get a day subscription to GM's EU TIS, because we can't recommend dodgy copies of the software here, can we.


That said, does sound likely its the ABS causing a problem.  But if the ABS/ESP is working, I would defo be checking the connectors etc before condemming anything.

It's not, another weekend test was taking it on the by-pass.

I stamped on the brakes at 70mph, easily locked up the fronts, with no pedal feedback.
so 0 volts ,abs pump not working
did you find the abs relay , mentioned many posts ago

Vauxhall don't make handbags ,so finding a genuine OEM vauxhall one may be hard  :-\
they don't even have them made by someone else,then stick vauxhall stickers on and charge ten times the original price  :P
they do make shoes though ,they go inside the rear drums and are part of the handbrake mechanism ,but if fitted correctly and adjusted correctly and used correctly ,they should last 100k +  :y

Look at your home energy efficiency and invest if needed
eg , old boiler that's inefficient ,loft insulation, old appliances ,
something as simple as investing in Led lighting over old lamps can save you and get your investment back in a few months ,then ongoing you are also saving.
an older tv can use up more power than new tech (plus bonus new tv)

ypu'd have to put the money saved on electric under the mattress  ready for the term end  :y

you could consider solar power ,but it may be tight to claw back investment in 3 to 5 years (solar is expensive but going down all the time)

a good bed is important ,you spend 1/3 of your life in it ,if you don't sleep well due to a crap bed,you will be less productive ,days off work etc

the MOT history does not inspire
11 passes, 9 fails with BIG Advisory lists
from that, I would think it got checked mechanically once a year and minimum work to get an mot certificate .
BUT ,now you own it , so give it some love  ;)

No burger van towing hook, all other lights working correctly.

Braking works as per normal, so guessing pump is working correctly.  :-\
have you tested the abs though ? as in braked hard to check it modulates ,wheels don't lock  :-\
the brakes still work,even with a duff pump

is it fitted with a shed dragging hook on the back ?
i had abs problems due to one (not zafira)
very sensitive system , even a blown brake lamp/bulb or dash indicator lamp can throw a spanner in the works
abs pump will be attached to brake lines ,follow them from reservoir
abs pump would have relays and runs when engine is running, constantly   
does esp module get data from steering angle sensor ?

Sorry for your loss  :'(
