    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default Safeguard Check!

    Hi Chaps,

    Ok - so fitted a CDC40 Opera with full screen etc into my 2006 Estate today - and all was fine etc

    But now I get a 'Safeguard Check' when I turn the ign on... Guess this is because the screen before didnt have the check system etc..

    So - after a search - I thought rear quarter windows and I need to join the two spade connections together on each side - so this is what I did:





    BUT - I still get the 'Safeguard Check' when I turn the ign on - so maybe this wasnt the issue...???

    Ive checked the fuses in the rear fusebox and all seem fine..

    So - HELP chaps as that warning is going to get on my nearves

    Thanks

    Ant

    OK - so I have Vauxcom...

    No DTC's that point to any issue...

    Anything specific I can / should look for and where in Vauxcom?

    OK - SORTED!!!

    I'd joined the wires - and as I was doing one window at a time I tested it by turning on the ign.. Once I had done both still the same message..

    BUT - what I DIDNT do was lock/arm the car and then unlock whilst testing it...

    Now I have actually locked and armed the car - going back to the car and unlocking and turning on ign - no more error!!!

    So lesson learned - you NEED to arm / disarm the car to test this - not just turn the ign on / off...

    shud the red LED always be flashing when the cars locked ?
    ive got 2x vec c's and ive never seen that LED flash once on either until yesterday when 1x car was showing "safeguard" and alarm was going off randomly.
    checked the connectors for rear quarter windows and boot lid, all seem secure.

    As far as I know yes. Mine's always flashed when the car is locked and alarmed. Never had any check safeguard messages before.
