    Hi there mate ive got the same problem with my vectra and its a 52 plate few ppl have told me to try a few things but its not worked i think if its any thing to go by on what ppl are saying its the cim unit that sits behind the streering wheel not cheap kidda as it has to be reprogrammed try a few things first that i did and see if it works it dint for me but may for u

    clean the abs plug that is a big plug on the right hand side off the engine bay near the wind screen just above batt,,,

    take clocks out give them a clean put back in u might just have a lose wire

    change fuse f17 on the fuse box on the passanger side off the dash board

    hope this help if that fails then see if u can get some one with a fault reader get it plugged in get the fault code and see if u can find out what it is thats wrong but most likly could be the cim unit hope this sorta helps

    replacement and fitting of a cim unit is anywere between £430 and £480.

    Had mine replaced (again) in July and until now its been fine. But it started doing its funky thing again on Saturday. Off to the dealer again on Wednesday.

    Strange thing with mine, since it did it Sat morning.. dials dropping, dash like a xmas tree, its been fine since then, and over 300 miles added.

    Ho-Hum
