    Default Instrument cluster going mental

    Hi there sorry to post a problem on my first post
    i can not seem to remember my usernam since my last problem in 2009

    well here goes
    1 have 2.2 Vectra Elegance Auto



    Ok, the first light that flashed on was the TC light (skid light i call it lol), only momentarily

    Second was the spanner warning sign which flashed on several times, then said the dials went mental turned off completley no fuel dial temp rev or speed.

    my on board cumputer the fuel distance and temp outside just had a --- in it

    Then Battery light came on then they all popped back on one after the other and just the TC light remained on . I turned off ignition turned enginge back on and all is fine

    can i maybe put this down to the adverse weather we have been getting or a glitch
    Many thanks in advance

    Sounds like the good old CIM or ABS fault mate. First off find the abs unit, its up near the passenger side strut top. Take the plug off and give it a clean with some wd40 and see how that goes.

    This one mate.



    Pull the bit circled and the plug will lift off. It could also be a dirty connection where the fuse plugs in, off the top of my head I cant remember but its in the dash when you open the passenger door.

    Unfortunately, I both of these fail, then it could be the CIM, and that's a £400 dealer fix only as it need programing.

    How old is your car, around 53 plate at a guess?

    Once you have done the ABS, and the problem still occurs, try the suggestion in the last post in the above thread.

    Not really mate, it was just a common fault on cars of our year. Mine did it year's ago and hasn't given me any trouble since.
