    Default Newbie

    Hi all, just joined from Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire.
    Just swapped my Astra van for a Vectra C 2.2Sri petrol, came with a few problems, dash/instrument failure, drivers window innop, key fob buttons on their last legs, slight exhaust leak from behind the cat, require major clean/small valet, passenger head rest missing, requires rear disc and pads

    Best to say now that I'm in no ways near to be mechanically minded, what I do know is possibly just common sense things and trial and error.

    So, eBay it was, ordered - key fob kit, headrest, Opcom fault code scanner, head unit adapter, rear discs and pads.

    Engine bay was given a good clean, maybe too much as when I went to run it again it was only running on three cylinders, did the usual disconnect what I could and made sure all was dry, still same, removed plugs, all but one were fairly low and discoloured, so ask the wife to nip into halfords on way home, plugs replaced, still the same, after looking thru this forum, I decided it could well be the coil pack, so trip to local salvage yard and purchased second hand coil pack, now running as it should with exception to this electrical issue that I believe will be the CIM module, just my luck.....

    Waiting to see if I can get the security code before I try to rest the ECU using the Opcom scanner, hopefully this will resolve the electrical issue.

    inspected the drivers window, which the regulator is all bent and window being held up with what I believe to be a table leg, eBay for menu regulator me thinks.

    Gave the inside a good clean today and looks as though the dash has been removed at some point(possibly a taxi at some point) this brings me to thinks the instrumental issue I have could(fingers crossed) be a loose connection somewhere.

    Anyways, enough from me, away to look for a window regulator
