    washer fluid, coolant level, oil, batteries of remote control,
    anti-theft warning device (if there is one), bulbs (tells you when one has blown) and some fuses; and on pre-facelift, front disc brake pad.
    Optional: tyre pressure (if monitoring system is present)

    if you are so impatient, you better register on the Vx-website and download the vectra manual

    This one popped up for the first time yesterday - i found it a rather nice one (certainly after the boring bulb failure messages i've seen earlier)

    It'l give you a heads up when a bulb is going to blow too. I had a brake light that was going to go, it said it had gone and very shortly it had. It keeps saying my off-side parking light needs checking, but after about 30seconds the bulb comes on, lol.

    That is a bad contact - typical for the parking light bulb holder. I had mine replaced - dealer said it is a common fault.
