    Default Tech 2 at N/West Vauxhall Grasmere of Crewe meeting

    Lots of people ask “what’s that socket under the ashtray?” or “What is Tech 2?” Well at the Crewe meet we had a demo:

    Drinky had a couple of dash lights that required attention so he went first:


    You can see the "console on Drinky's wheel and the connector to the ashtray:







    The screen shows the status of all 27 of drinkys onboard computers and logs any faults that may have occured.



    Tech 2 reported a "few" problems that could be cleared and ignored and a couple of "biggys" Unfortunately the Vx technician fixed em so quickly I didn't get a piccy of the problem.


    Next up ..Pricey. Not sure what the findings were.

    Yeh, very good of them to do the free tech2 checks. I was glad mine wasn't showing any
    current fault codes though.

    Parking light bulbcheck was showing on the info display, but thats due to the monkeys that
    fitted my new headlight a couple of months ago. Its going back in next week for it sorting.
