    Default Vectra C With No Cruise Control Fitted!

    Wondered if anyone has come accross this. Have just picked up an 05 cdti 150bhp auto which was a police car. It runs absoluteley fine and we are realy pleased with it. However, it has no cruise control buttons on the stick which i thought was wierd as i have never seen a vec c without it?!

    I'm guessing it may be a special police mod but does anyone know if you can plug and play with a another stalk that encorporates the buttons or is it a no go? Probobley a rare problem this, but thought i would throw it out there on the off chance anyone else has owned an ex police vec and has sorted it out. Many thanks in advance!

    P.s. it goes like a bat out of hell

    Police spec Vectra's never came with Cruise Control. There was also a 1 year run of a complete poverty spec Vec(lower than LS or Life) that never came with CC either. I imagine its just a case of a CC Stalk and a Tech2/op com session to get it working.

    My old ex police SXi saloon had CC on it.

    Thanks for your replies fellas. I hoped it would be like the Astra H situation where you can just change the stick and turn it on in the cim, so i will give it a go. Must admit i didnt know there were any vectra c without cc, ill be keeping a look out for them now just so i can say ive seen one!

    Just one last question - it has dual zone climate control and as such has a big GID screen instead of a TID. To my surprise when i first started the car, it has no computer or check control readout - just the climate control info, radio info and when you press bc on the head unit only a stopwatch appears! Is that another turn on-able feature?

    Cheers

    Chris

    The check control does not appear on the GID unless it picks up a problem which it will then report on the screen. If nothing is showing then check control has not found any problems!

    good idea. I was kinda hoping to get average mpg and all that malarky too - strange the only feature of the on board computer is a stopwatch! I guess thats all to do with how the screen is programmed as opposed to tech 2 ing it on the car?
