    i also have this problem with all the dials failing, TC light coming on, steering wheel and ! and battery light coming on, then when everything decides come back to life i get the dreaded car and spanner warning in the rev counter.
    had a look at the ABS ECU connectors as shown in the picture in this thread. ( http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ht=plug&page=2 page 2)
    also my car fails to start sometimes yet if i lift the bonnet and wiggle the connector shown in the picture and the one just behind it the car starts no problem.

    what is the connector box behind the ABS connector for?
