    Default Symbol on Dash

    I got a vectra sri 2.2dti, and when it starts a symbol comes up on dash for a few seconds, its a picture of a car skidding (normal sign you see on the side of road for slippery surface)

    according to the manual its for either traction control or electronic stability program.

    if it lights up does that mean i have either of them, or how can i tell if i actually have any of them systems?

    cheers

    it says that you have them, if it didn't light you'd not have it 'live'..

    it's just a system check light if it blinks off after a few seconds..

    okay, that means you can't turn it off, but the system is fitted to the car..


    if you did decide to fit the TC switch you'd have a 50% chance it would work...
