    Default Vectra Life Steering Controls problem

    Hi,

    The left hand thumb wheel (See Pic) on the steering controls hasnt worked since I've had the car.

    I've had the switch apart and the switch itself appears to be switching, according the the multimeter??

    My questions are... What does this button activate on the CD30?? Could it be to do with the Board Computer that isnt activated??

    So if anyone one with a vectra life could answer wether its working on their car or anyone with more knowledge than me could help me out it would be much appreciated.



    The pic attached is not my steering wheel but borrowed from another thread.

    hi marky the left hand thumbwheel operates the obc as you rightly guessed. you have to press on it first tho. this brings up the menus for you to scroll thru ave mpg ave speed inst. mpg etc

    Does having one of these switches on the steering wheel mean that the upgrade to the display to get all of the functions on the on board computer?

    I am hopefully picking up my Life model tomorrow so I will have a new project car to play with, the last car was a MK3 Mondeo with retro fitted climate control, front and rear map lights, foot well lights etc etc.

    How do you remove thumbwheel and two buttons?
    On my Vectra left hand side buttons doesn't work properly and I think there is some connection problems.
    I could get connection problems solved if I'd clean under the buttons.
