    It works in two ways.

    Lane change - when you press it lightly one way or the other, then it will give 3 to 4 flashes and self cancel.

    On, and stay on until you either self cancel or rotate the steering wheel, like normal indicators - you have to press the stalk firmly up or down (depending on which way you want to indicate)

    If you want to cancel the indicators, some people make the mistake of flicking the stalk the other way. The best method is to lightly flick the stalk in the same direction you're indicating at the time. That way if you're too heavy handed you won't put the other side on when trying to cancel.

    No option to change volume that I'm aware of. If there was, then I'm sure it would have been posted by now.

    Indicators no more wierd than on the BMW and other car manufactuers that use this set up. Once you get used to them, going back to traditional ones seems very 90's.

    The Veccy/Siggy indicators are a real pain in the rington! I get sick of them self cancelling etc. Has anybody been clever enough to retro fit 'proper' indicators/wipers stalks? Now that would be a cool mod!

    That'll be for the Corsa, IIRC.

    Doesn't work on the Vectra.
