    Default Number plate lights.

    Ok my first post, so be gentle.

    Just getting used to the Signum and it's bits and pieces, only had it a month so still learning.

    Can't get my head around why the number plate lights come on day and night when I unlock the car. I guess this is normal for the model, does the Vectra also do this.

    It's an Elegance 1.9 CDTi 150, no problems yet but guess you're going to tell me I will have soon on reading about some of the problems.

    I took out a 1 year warranty, just in case I need any major work doing, who knows.

    Great site and some interesting reading so far.

    Mick

    Its so you can find your car at night in a supermarket full of identical cars.
    It has happened to me a few times and had it not been for my illuminating number plate i would never have found my car amongst the 1200 identical blue Vectras also parked at Asda.

    The vectra does this as well. I thought it was weird and perhaps indicated a wiring problem! Yes you will read about 1.9CDTI (150) problems. It seems to be rather a target of hate on here. Sadly I did not read this until after I had purchased my SRi Vectra with the 150 1.9 CDTi.

    It's not a wiring problem. All Vectra C's do it.

    I think it's so you know the boot is unlocked.

    I quite like the idea of it lighting up, wish it lights up the head lights as well, like on some cars.

    My Vectra only does this on the second press of the zapper.... then it lights sidies and plate lights.... apparently it's called 'door-to-door lighting'.

    Too be fair to the CDTi, the reason it gets so much bad press on here is that most members own them. You will probably find the same percentage of people complain about a different engine but there are just less owners of said lump if you catch my drift.
