    Default Trip computer ACTIVATION

    Hi guys,

    Ive read many threads on here that trip computer can be activated. I have the "BC Button" and like many other people it only shows the option of having a "Timer".

    I know my trip computer can be activated BUT from where!? Ive called many dealers and they all seem to have no idea what I'm talking about and insist it cant be done, when I know it can as im sure a lot of you will agree with.

    Oh mine is a 2006 Vectra and yes I have the right display! Can anyone reccomend any good garages ANYWHERE in the london area or even a bit out of London as the trip computer would be really handy to me.

    Also any member with tech2 that know how to do this, would it be possible to let me know the steps? I know its something to do with changing the variant codes...

    Thanks, any feedback would be greatly appriciated.

    Its just a matter og changing the Code index of your screen.. (not variant codes), with Vaux-com it takes like 1 minut to do.

    Ask a dealer to speak to rob At Colchester Underwoods 01206 844422 I'm sure he could explain to them over the phone. He is the chief tech there and done mine

    Default Tech 2 in Lancashire area

    Does anyone know of any reputable tech 2 operatives in the north lancashire, south cumbria area. I would like my trip activating on my 1.9 CDTi (05). It has sat nav built in so seems a shame not to have it with the screen.

    Thanks in advance for any help
