    Default Problems with new car - help!

    Hi all,

    I have recently got a 2004 vectra 1.9 cdti estate, the 120 version. There's a couple of things I could do with some help on:

    There is a a whine/whistle that is dependent on engine speed, it makes no difference whether the car is in gear or not, possibly air con related?

    The main blower fan only works on setting 4.

    The safeguard button doesn't work, any ideas on costs for all this?

    Thanks very much!

    Turn the a/c off, does it stop?

    The drains by the pollen filter have been or still are blocked causing water to get into the car via the heater motor which blows the resistor pack - clean drain and replace.
    All that button does is to turn off the sensors within the car. have you read the manual? Whats it not doing?

    1, Probably your turbo spooling up, maybe loose boost pipe.

    Heater one is because the relay has gone, or atleast thats what it was on my corsa.

    The noise remains the same whether the a/c is on or off.

    I've read the manual and all it says is that if the check safeguard message appears then you need to get it looked at. I'm not massively bothered about the feature really, just wondered if anybody else has had the same problem and managed to get it fixed?

    The whistle is most likely the turbo spooling up as mentioned in another post. Any CDTi i've been in whether a 120 or 150 do this from time to time. I quite like the noise when mine does it! Im sure you have to push and hold the safeguard button to get the LED to come on. It does only turn the interior ultrasonics off. Handy when you've the dog or kids in he car for running into the shop though! Good luck mate.
