    Default Enable fuel consumption etc on CDC40

    Hi,
    I've recently bought an 08 Vectra 1.9 CDTi Exclusiv, and only have the timer function on the BC.
    Does anyone know of anyone in the Tamworth area who is able to enable the other functions such as Fuel consumption?

    Local dealer isn't interested.

    I will also be in Aylesbury / Oxford areas Monday & Tuesday next week if anyones knows anyone in that area.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Hi mate - When you say "local dealer isn't interested" - what exactly do you mean ? I can't believe your friendly grasping local stealer would turn up their nose at £40 (standard "inspection fee") for doing next to nothing !!. I had mine done at the local dealer... like yours (I suspect) they had absolutely no clue what I was talking about when I booked the appointment on the phone. I actually framed it as if it was a fault that had occurred with the BC, just so they would book it in. Once I got there, I had the usual sucking-in of breath and rubbing of chin from the 'technician', but I basically cajoled him into getting out his Tech2 and hooking it up, "just to humour me".... whereupon I was able to tell him exactly what to do, he did it (in a slightly bemused way... he clearly had no clue what or why !!) .... it worked; he beamed and said "thanks mate, I've learned something today!". The buggr still charged me the £40 though :-) So - in short - I would get it on their books by telling them it's a fault; then when you get there, tell the technician what buttons to press, ignore his dire warning about it might break something, tell him it's your risk and to do it anyway. After all - you're the customer, and you're paying !!. Those extra BC functions are well worth it, btw... I'm very chuffed with mine. There are some cool subtle features.. .like, once you have Range enabled, then when you get to 30 miles till empty, the SatNav will flick on and automatically list the nearest petrol stations for you. Very nice.

    Does this work on the CD40 on 2005 model?
