    Default Newbie Questions - CDTI !60

    Hi all

    Have been stalking these forums every since the possibility of buying an Insignia come about, I'm pleased I've found a nice place that I can ask questions and hopefully I can help out too where and when I can.

    I've had my car for all of 4 days now and just wanted to know a couple of things that hopefully people can tell me are normanl about the car?

    First, there is a faint high pitched whine after I lock or unlock the car. It lasts for about 20 seconds then stops,

    And secondly, As the clutch was alot lower than on my Astra, I did stall it a couple of times (It's OK you can laugh, I would!!), However a 'water in the fuel' warning appeared on the display as I stalled it. Is this normal?

    Thirdly, How much is it to check if all the recalls have been addressed on the car? Is it a visit to a main dealer? My local one are undoubtedly the worst dealership i have every come arcoss in the 20 years I've owned cars and don't want to take it to them.

    Many thanks in advance for any help on the above questions. I don't know how to do my signature yet on the forums, but my misses has a Vectra C and I've got an Insignia and if we can help you guys and girls in any way, please ask.

    Thanks again
    Andy

    Welcome to the forum .
    Recall checks are free, pop into a dealer and they should be able to tell you what has or hasn't been done. There are a few depending on the age of the vehicle.

    Don't know what the whine is (guessing it is some pump or other) but mine stopped after being in the dealers for a recall.

    Never had the water in fuel warning light after I've stalled but there have been odd comments on other forums but can't recall any resolution bar it only occurs randomly.

    Recall checks and re-works should be done by the dealer before the car goes out.

    When I bought mine, I asked the same question and my dealer informed me that mine had received all the re-works, as when the prep the car they check on TIS for any notifications against my chassis number.

    Mine also does a similar whine, not sure what this is but always has done it. When it is all locked, press the boot release button and you should here it again.

    Never had the water in the fuel message though so can't help there, and mines an Auto so so have the clutch height query.
