    Default New car - some questions

    Hi,

    Just picked up my vectra today, although few queries as not sure if all functions are operational. Its a 1.9cdti SRI 150bhp version. The center console area has a double-din dvd player in it where what should be some sort off controls I believe?

    Because this is there, I dont think i can use the buttons on the steering wheel, especially the ones on the radio, but why dont the buttons on the right hand side work? I think they operate a bit off the cruise control? but can use cruise control okay via the stock

    Also, the trip computer, I see you can operate it by using the 2 flick buttons on the right stock, but how do you reset the computer? I want to reset the MPG and trip etc, also the time needs re-set. (I hope the controls are not where this dvd player is?) Also, anything else I may be missing out on?

    Here is a photo if it guys a better idea.

    firstly welcome to the site, on the wiper arm with the two buttons push it, it will bring up mpg, int consumption etc, scroll down to settings, this brings up another screen, here scroll down to 'bc reset all' this resets it, then come back out.

    regarding the stereo it is likely the steering controls will not work as the are linked with factory head units, however depending on the head unit mdel you can but a loom to morm with orginal steering controls, go to your local ice shop or even halfords, they will tell you if this is possible.hope this helps

    Thanks people, will have to pop into halfords to try getting the steering wheel operational, at least the left hand side. Right side, not sure what they are for or if I can get them buttons working.

    I ask about the trip computer as I couldnt work out how to scroll down, I used the stalk but it only seemed just to flick to page you mention that contains the info. Where is the scrolling button?

    So many things to get used too, will have to have a good play about

    The fella I bought the car off said the timing belt kit was done by last owner and no documentation, anyone any idea if you can check if it has?

    --------------
    on a positive note, I am enjoying the torque, its quite dead 1st gear for first few revs, but every gear after that from 2k off its like it has an afterburner attached to the motor, smiling material

    Also ordered xenon lights + the black irmscher grill

    There are 3 buttons on the right hand stalk. The back one selects, the front 2 moves up and down through the menus.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yeah will have to get the cam belt sorted, piece off mind and all that, Want to leave the car into a garage, get a good look around the bushes etc, easily replaced worn items and that, Any idea how much the cam belt + fitting costs on the vectra roughly?

    lol Found what the problem was, I never noticed that there was a button "behind" the stalk front 2 sliders - sorted now, got time and date set, everything operational (apart from steering wheel buttons) and just found it has 6 gears LOL - funny how little things completely perk you up! Thanks for the advice
