Am having a serious issue with my '03 Vectra with regards to internal fan/blower and radio.
Had the car in to get some work done on the cracked water pump recently. The mechanic had to take off the battery connection while he did the work. When I collected the car he told me that he couldn't enter in the security code for the radio as he couldn't find the card with it on...not a problem I entered the code and all was well.
Drive the car for a day and for some unknown reason the blower in the cabin went to max all on it's own. The dial for the blower was at 2, and no matter how many times I adjusted the fan speed the blower would stay on max. I tried every combination of adjustment to the A/C (auto on and off), temp, fan speed, everything...the blower stayed on max. Then when I parked up and went to the shops the blower stayed on, even when the key was out of the ignition, in my pocket and the car locked with the remote. I was away from the car for 20mins and the blower was still on max when I got back. This will not do I thought, as if I leave the car overnight it's just going to drain the battery. So last night, about 1600ish, I disconnected the battery thinking that this may help the situation...reset the ECU etc.
Today at 1600 I re-connected the battery, the blower went straight to max again with the keys to the car in my pocket. I need to use the car very early tomorrow morning, so for the meantime I have removed the fuse (no. 23) located by the passenger door and pulled out the massive fuse (40amp) for the blower itself (don't want to be under the bonnet at 0530 in the dark). Will have to put the fuse back in when I have the car running and take it out when I'm not using the car - what a pain in the butt.
Another issue has arisen now. The radio is in SAFE mode, but I try to enter the code but the radio will only display 'SAFE' and '01.01.2002'.....no option to enter the code in when I follow the procedure to.
Anyone got any clues/suggestions??
