    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Year : 2005

    Default Little hidden extras....

    Now I maybe talking out my rear end when asking this and I did search but no gem, is there a way of settting something up so lights come on when unlocking the car. I'm sure I read a thread on here or perhaps vvoc, re doing this amongst other hidden extra things that can be activated by pressing holding spinng kicking various buttons and what not?

    Anyone know?

    Only thing you can do that is bog standard on all Vec-C's is to pull on the indicator stalk when leaving the car, which will put on the dipped headlights and reverse lights for 30 seconds (or 2 mins if you leave the drivers door opened)

    What you're asking requires an add on, such as happylightshow

    I have contacted Planty who owns Total Closure as i'm still considering a unit for my Signum.

    They will work on any car, just need to locate the relevent wires to connect the unit to, so they will work on a Vectra-C/Signum.

    I'm just trying to think why you would need to have the lights come on when unlocking the car?.....you would need to turn them off again when trying to start the engine as not to drain the battery...to me this would be a pain in the ****
