    Default Change CIM

    Hi,

    I bought one CIM from one 2.2 DTI 2003.

    My car have the engine Z1.9DTH 2004

    One Question. If i change the electronic card with my, have any problem ? Or is necessary programming the key ?

    I want test the CIM, to know if the problem is the CIM or not. I want Unplug my CIM, and plug the other CIM with other key. Have any problem to ECU without turn on the engine with other key ? just test the stalks

    Thanks

    Mário

    I think you should be able to test the stalks, but not start the key...

    As stated above, assuming the CIM is indeed compatible, then it will operate all functions except the start / immobiliser side of things.

    Ideally, you should get a CIM with the same Alpha-Code as your original one, just to be sure of compatibility.

    Assuming your problem is with your stalks, have you tried pulling them out of their locations, and cleaning their contact surfaces.

    In general 90% of electronic faults are due to dirty / faulty or broken contacts / wires, although there are no wires to speak of in this set-up.

    My CIM have one problem. When i try wash front window, nothing work ( Water pomp and wipers )

    The others operations, function 100%

    So, i bought one CIM with Stalks. I clean the contacts and change the stalks.The problem continuous...

    Now, i want test the CIM.

    How i know the Alpha-Code ?

    If the new CIM work, i want change the CIMs.. For that, i have to go to OPEL , because they need programming the key.

    Can I ask if you have checked the relays and fuses in the underhood electrical centre.? The big long fuse box next to the battery.

    The CIM is the last thing that I would have changed, just on the understanding that they are the most expensive to buy, and the most complicated to replace and program up.

    There are two ways to find the alpha-code.
    Two letter identification tag on all Vauxhall components.

    1) Take out the part, and look for the two letter code. which will be printed on the casing, or a yellow sticker with two black letters on it.

    2) Using a Tech 2, Op-Com, Vaux-Com diagnostic / programming tool to read the part number off the installed component.

    I check the fuses, not the relays...

    Because i dont think that exist one relay to do the operation "wash front window"

    If the CIM broke, just one operation on stalks dont work ?! Is weird...

    I also seem to remember there is a known fault listed on BBA reman for similar fault - cause of faulty body control module which leads to burning out wiper motor. Just a thought
