    Default Trip Computer

    Just a quick question to ask are Vecs which have trip computers in them meant to have oil level, stopwatch and brake light failure warning displays on them??

    I have an energy special edition with the trip computer specced on it which was a £250 optional extra on this spec, but it doesnt have any of the above features or other ones, yet my mates 15year old J reg Astra GSi has all those features, just wondering if mines is busted or if higher spec vectras get more features on the trip comp the higher spec it is, or if its simply more vaux pennypinching on the functions of the trip computer throughout the range too??

    would be grateful if anyone could tell me how it is.

    cheers.

    I think the stopwatch was only added on the facelift models?

    If you've got the Trip Computer on your SE, then it should have the standard Check Control features.....engine oil level, engine coolant level, front brake pad wear, windscreen washer fluid level, bulb test for head/tail and brake lights and brake lights fuse.

    Maybe a silly question, but how do you know/think yours hasn't got the oil level warning on it?

    Mine's got a journey time on it. You zero it and it says how long your journey took. You can programme it with stops/without stops.

    My BC has two trip computers and a Timer function, looks much like that on the VXR vectra. Someone described it as retro looking?!? I corrected them of course.

    Mines got the 2 trips, Stop watch and washer level warning. Therefore I'm assuming that it has other functions also.

    How can you tell?

    Maybe since they replaced the high res trip comp with the rubbish screen thats all 'blocky' it might not have those other features, but on the other hand has the stopwatch that the previous ones didn't.

    My 05 pre-facelift has the stopwatch too, not that it's ever used.

    Basically the full canbus (05 reg upwards) cars that have a computer will have a stopwatch. What year is your car Hendry?
