    Only know this from fitting them on my bike so don't know vectra specifics, but LEDs use a lower voltage that the standard bulbs so the whole system is affected. You need some form of resistor in the circuit to reduce the voltage

    On second inspection, this is likely due to the canbus system in the vectra, apparently they don't like LEDs

    LEDs might work better

    Could be kinds cool though having the LCD displaying things like brake, tail, reverse, etc.
