    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 125000

    Default Vectra C interior lights cable

    Long story short, Safeguard message on dash due to low voltage getting through my bodge of the ribbon,flat,flex cable which leads from the boot fuse through the roof linen too all lights and finishes at the sun visors. Alarm would not stop sounding, got frustrated and ripped the whole cable out (cable now done for).

    Now Iíve searched everywhere online on amazon, Opel catalogue, even called Vauxhall and canít find any replacements. I donít suppose anyone has any ideas as to where to get a new or used one? Could go to a breakers yard but donít fancy having my eyes ripped out.

    cheers.

    Cheers for the input, maybe upgrading the lights and cable could be a solution.

    That’s great, your a god send!

    would you mind pricing it all up for me and send me a message with the details?

    needless to say all the connectors for the lights and visors would be on?

    cheers!!

    Just a thought, but if you search the Troubleshooting section, filtering for roof ribbon, I think I recall looking at a post explaining how one chap rewired his interior lights (at least in part, maybe all) using real cable as opposed to the VX version of wires stuck through knicker elastic. After two years of frustration, I'm hoping to bite the bullet and sort my interior lights when the weather starts to suit my clothes again.
