    Vehicle : Vectra 1.9CDTi (150)



    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 40000

    Default Onboard computer only has Timer option??

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forums, so apologies if this has been covered before....I did look, honest....

    I picked up my 09 Vectra 1.9cdti Exclusiv on Friday, and was looking forward to seeing what the onboard computer could tell me.....err, there's a timer and that's it....

    Now, just to add to this, I'm <fairly> convinced that when I took the car on a test drive I saw a picture of a fuel pump thingy on the display screen, as if it was some sort of 'low fuel' warning.....wouldn't want to put my life on that, but hey....

    Anyway, does anyone have any pointers as to how I go about adding other info like average MPG, fuel left till empty etc??

    Thanks in advance,
    Lee.

    I may be wrong but the exclusive dosen't come with that option ..i'm guessing you only have the 3 line orange display .

    Its definitely got an orangey theme, but I don't know how many lines it has....basically, when I press BC it takes me straight to Timer with no other options....bit disappointing seeing as my 57 Seat Leon had all this stuff, as did my 53 Mondeo beforehand....

    in some cases I believe more imfo can be extracted by having the bc tech 2 ed...but that comes at a cost from most VX places ..about £45 for a session ..

    Only those who understand what it is you want

    Yep BC not standard on Life or Exclusive trims. I believe it can only be added if the screen which has the TIMER tab also has two unused tabs above it to house the 'BC1' and 'BC2' tabs for the two Trip Computers.

    Thanks mate - there's certainly space on the screen above/below where it says TIMER at the moment, but there's not any actual text (if that makes sense??).....shall I give my local dealer (stealer?) a call to see what he makes of it??

    Was your leon or mondeo bottom of the range? Higher models in the range have more features.

    As above the closer you go to the bottom of the range the less features the car has.
