    Default saab/vectra

    hi, can anyone confirm that a vectra part with the same part no. as a saab part is actually the same peice of kit.. i kno the saab 9-5? is basically a vectra underneath.. thing is, ive got a 'saab' parking sensor from ebay to replace a damaged one, tech 2 helped me out to determine the problem, new piece turned up and it doesnt work. So its either a faulty part, or the 'saab' part i bought is actually slightly different to its vec counterpart even tho its got the same part no. any help appreciated.

    the 9-3 is the same platform as the vectra not the 9-5. If part no is the same its the same part !

    generally speaking, if the part number is the same so is the part, certainly filters, suspension and engine components are. Perhaps it is faulty, either that or the fault is actually something else.

    If they have the same GM part number then they should be the same part.

    So either the eBay part is faulty or your diagnosis is wrong/incomplete.

    What did Tech 2 tell you the problem was?

    Maybe try plugging the eBay sensor in where one of your known good sensors. This might help confirm whether the eBay sensor is OK or not.

    hi all, im seeing steve (tramman) on monday, i think first port of call is to quickly plug the sensor into his car. If it doesnt work then i know its damaged. If it does, then maybe it maybe a case of plugging it in mine, and resetting the fault code, see what happens. After that, who knows??

    regards...
