    The answer is..

    The Head-unit has not been divorced from the donor vehicle, and you do not have the matched display, then you will need to have the whole infotainment system reset and then paired up.

    You will need the donor vehicle's security / audio pass number for this.

    If you do not have this, then you will need to get the head-unit reset by one of those agencies that specialise in re-flashing the head-unit eeprom.

    Vauxhall will not be able to get the security number from the head-unit, as they would trace this by the VIN number. The VIN number is NOT stored on the head-unit, but it is on the display and all the other vehicle modules, which you do not have.

    If you have the donor vehicle's pass number, then you will indeed need to take this, the headunit and your car to be paired up using Tech 2, Vaux-Com or Op-Com.

    It will require an experienced programmer to do this, as it is a convaluted procedure to disable anti-theft protection on the head-unit (withthe donor car's security code), reset the display,
    then re-enable anti theft protection in the head unit and the display with your car's security code...then they need to program your vehicle details along with can speed programming, Code Indeces and variance configurations.

    Personally, I would have got the matched display... it would have been plug and play that way.

    The Astra-H display is configured differently internally, and so will not provide any usable board computer functions.

    Connections for lighting, time and ambient temperature will still all be fine.. just the fuel flow rate and the fuel level values will be "gobbledeegook" to the display.

    The radio and CD and MP3 side of things will work fine.

    No problems - sorry it doesn't do what you want, but at least I may have saved you wasting money on a non-compatible set-up.

    To be honest aftermarket radio's are far superior to GM / VX original units for the same sort of money.
