    Default Door Thinks It's Open

    A common fault this one... the driver's door thinks it's open even when it's fully closed, so the central locking is refusing to lock the car and the "door open" picture is showing in the display between the dials. In the old days it meant the little plunger-type switch in the door jam had broken, but Vectras don't have this. Does anyone know of a fix? I've tried WD40 on the latch mechanism, but no affect.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    The "switch" (for want of a better word) is part of the internal workings of the mechanism. Might be worth stripping the mechanism out and seeing if there's anything obvious, but usually it needs a replacement mechanism.
