    pedal test: with ignition off, hold down accelerator and brake fully, turn ignition to II (electric on but dont start car). Release accelerator fully, then press down again(still holding brake). Switch ignition off, then back to II. Hold pedals down still.
    Now, the emission light( little engine block below fuel gauge) will flash out any codes in groups of 4. Ten flashes means zero. You can then look up codes on internet, try and find GM specific definitions.
    Don't think this works on all vectras but worth a try....if not a u480 basic code reader is about 20 quid on e bay.
