    Smile Headlights flickering

    Hello and a Happy New Year to everyone.

    I have just purchased my first Vectra so i am new to this forum.
    I must say that the amount of knowledge on here will be invaluble to any Vectra C owners.

    Now, i have driven to Scotland for the new year and must agree that the standard headlights are ****. But i also notice that they flicker when i turn the steering wheel. Has anybody had this??

    Yes and it's normal. It's due to the huge power drain from the steering pump. It should only do it at low revs.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
