    Default Insp light

    Hi, I bought an 08 1.9 CDTi auto facelift Vectra C in January this year, they told me it had been valeted and serviced before collection, and that it would need servicing by them January 2011 at around £130 " with discount" for coming back.
    I have no service stamp in booklet, handbook said check remaining distance by pressing trip mileage reset. Did that, just got "insp". tried putting key in and turning to ignition, also got "insp" for several seconds.
    Handbook says that means service due within 600 miles, should I go lynch a dealer?

    Did the actually do the serivce as it sounds like the car was "programed" for an anual service, and the dealer has not "reprogramed" it. You can do it yourself.
    If my memory is correct.
    Press the brake pedal (and hold)
    Turn the ignition key, so the ignition lights are on. But don,t start the car.
    Press the odmeter button.
    Hopefully that should reset the "insp" indicator, for the next twelve months.

    How old is the handbook? By the sounds of it, a lot older than the car.

    What you've described is the ECOService-flex service intervals. I thought Vauxhall had done away with this sometime in 2005'ish and reverted to fixed term service intervals of 'x' miles or 1 year, whichever came sooner.

    Handbook is the one with a mainly white cover, pic of Vec facing quarter left, grey vertical and horizontal stripe with red Vx logl top right and red square beneath joing two grey sections. No publishing date on it.

    Ed, thanks, will try it tomorrow. Think I had a piece of paper said service had been done, will check folder, not stamped in service book though.
