    Default Safeguard check error and demister issue

    Hi everyone,

    I've got a vectra c 1.8 vvt hatchback and over the last few days I'm getting the safeguard check on the display.

    today the demister on the back window has stopped working.

    are the 2 linked?

    any ideas how to fix demister and safeguard error?

    thanks guys

    It uses the heater element as a glass break detector so possibly linked.

    Check the connections at the side of the screen where the power goes into it.

    Hi lee,

    thanks for quick reply.

    when you say check do you mean check the actual lines that run through the glass? If so am I looking for cracks/breaks in the lines?

    sorry if I've Mid read

    cheers

    dean

    For it to fully fail I would look at the sides under the plastic and try and see where the wire attaches to the screen as they can break off.
