    strange , the astra had the same sort of problem that if you put the lights on the horn didnt work , but did when lights were off

    was a big recall for faulty cim units

    yours sounds the same so could also be a faulty cim

    CIM = column interface module, sits below the steering wheel.

    The CIM is one of the many moduals/ECU's modern cars has. Its behind the stearing wheel, but tbh ive never seen a CIM on a vec c do that before but all those systems mentioned do run through it.

    Yea, it should do mate, but there are some things you can try yourself for free like the earths as Paul mentioned, some CIM fixes HERE and even something as simple as the fuses. Im not sure but the Body Control Module may even come into it.

    PS, scroll up when you hit the link as for me its taking me to the last post
