    I assume that NDR2 was the last digital radio station selected in the donor vehicle..
    It is just the Name of the radio station.

    If you cannot get any other stations, then proceed as follows..

    If it is thought to be poor signal strength ...

    Have you got the proper DAB aerial ?

    Or an after-market version...

    Any DAB aerial will do as long as it has the Fakra Connector..

    The standard analogue aerial on your Vectra Club will not provide a suitable signal strength for your DAB unit.


    If it is not thought to be signal strength..

    Just like you scroll through normal radio stations on the analogue CD30 head-unit, you can do the same thing to search through DAB radio stations...

    I don't know the CDC40 particularly well, but you may need to rescan for Digital stations..
    Sure it will be somewhere in the Settings bit....
    Press your DAB button =>
    Then Press SETTINGS =>

    And scroll through as necessary...

    See if you can down-load a copy of the CDC40 user manual..

    They are about £16 to buy from Vauxhall (My CD70 manual was approx 5 years ago )

    Had another look this morning checked all the connections still nothing. My next step is to get an aftermarket dab aerial if that doesn’t work I’m thinking the box is knackered.

    I've never heard of a DAB box being faulty... probably because they are not that common, compared say to the CD30 and CD70... also many CDC40's did not come with the DAB box.

    Can I assume that you have put all the necessary wires into you head-unit and display connectors..
    Lost my memory stick with all my wiring diagrams. So working from memory...

    DAB wires to screen are

    Green and white twisted pair from DAB box to pins 17 and 18 of the display

    Then
    3 x Audio wires to Aux / DAB audio in pins on Head-unit
    (4 out of DAB box - two audio grounds are twisted together before being connected to the Head-unit)

    1 x Red wire (battery voltage from either head-unit, or Fuse 1 in the end of dash fuse box)

    1 x brown wire to any good steel chassis tube or earthing point.

    Then DAB aerial straight to the DAB box

    Standard aerial to the CDC40 for analogue radio

    If everything is as described, then It has to be one of the following -
    DAB box fault
    Incorrect method of using head-unit to control DAB stations. (nothing bad inferred by this comment).
    Unlikely, but possible mis-match between infotainment components.

    Beyond that, I am simply spouting guess-work...
