    Angry Vectra NOOOOO!

    I rang Clifford alarms today to get an Intelliguard 950 and intellistart on my car with all the trimmings (which I had on my last car.) amazingbit of kit and is the best out there.

    BUT...................................

    Due to the canbus on the Vectra they cannot fit any part of the alarm cos it would mess it up or just not work

    they are working on a fix for this and it may be ready next month, but only time will tell. So I have to put up with that RUBBSIH poxy cack alarm system that is in the boot, and most people still break into cos its soo crud!

    sooo annoyed as this was the last bit of major spending on the car, now the money is just burning a hole in my pocket lol

    Controller Area Network.....

    Think of a office computer network, and that's what you've got in the vectra c...many tiny computers talking to each other via a high speed network..

    Basically the vectra C isn`t wired like a conventional car used to be, when you click say the headlamp switch it doesn`t simply complete a circuit, it tells a computer module to switch the lights on, hence the split second deley you will notice. Try flicking on the heater fans, doesn`t happen instantly. This means adding things isn`t as easy as you have found out, the the 1/2 canbus is a little more forgiving ...
