    Default Help!!!! A few issues with my Vectra

    Hey guys...I have a few issues with my Vec-C and would like some help please. I drive a 2004 Vectra 1.8 club (Engine type: Z18XE).


    1. The low engine oil light is on (orange light). Comes on after a few miles and stays on until I switch off the engine. I checked the oil and it is at maximum. No leaks as far as I can see. Everything else works. Engine temp is normal and the car runs smoothly. The oil pressure light has never come on.
    2. I have a problem with the cruise control. When I switch it on, it stays on but sometimes it switches itself off. Also when it is on and I indicate to change lanes it switches off. (annoying little thing).
    3. My CD is stuck in the CD player. When I press the eject button, I get an error on the display.


    Any help would be highly appreciated. Thankyou.

    Number 1 sounds like your oil pump. Does it go off if you rev high?

    To be honest I don't know. I've not revved the car all the way but the most I've got to was about 4k revs. I will check when I drive it and get back to you on that one.

    It's not the OPs oil pressure light that's coming on, it's the oil level light.

    I'd say that the level sensor is faulty as I've seen this exact fault before. Clean ya cruise stalk and ya cd will need a yank out with a special tool that I use at work which is basically a thin piece of very strong wire 3mm thick with 3mm long 90 degree bend on the end. But do that at your own risk. We normally get people put two CDs in somehow which jams everything up as you would imagine
