    Default flickering screen.....

    I have owned my Vectra for two weeks now and have been noticing the information screen flickers.

    The car is a SRI 2003 2.2 with the 6 buttons on the steering wheel, i believe the system is the half bus system (i think) the screen does all the stuff like average MPG etc.


    Ive found when i turn the steering wheel allot when parking it flickers and also it will also flicker when i load the car electrically, e.g put the windscreen blower button on.


    Can everyone throw some light on this....

    the car is still under the 3 month warranty i got from the dealer but any info on here will help me greatly if i need to ask to have something looked at by there workshop.


    im wondering if this is a sign that the battery or the auxiliary belt needs replacing.

    Any info will be most helpful.
    Cheers

    Michael

    PS this is with the headlights off so its backlit orange

    This could be the CIM module mate, I am having similar problems with this screen but its turning on and off, screen new costs 500 quid the CIM costs about same. Just my thoughts I would take it back get it checked.

    This seems to be a standard thing on the Vectra. It is nothing to worry about. It has a lot to do with the fact that the power steering pump is part electrical, and when the engine is on low rev,s there is a heck of a lot of power drain. I dare say that you will have noticed that the headlights dim too if they are on at the time.

    Cool, thanks for the replys, i checked the battery and the alternater and both seem ok.

    I was hoping it was a common thing when the electrical circuit is loaded up.


    Cheers for replys.
