    Question Key-in reminder alarm

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone please confirm that Vectra C's have a key-in reminder warning alarm? I'm talking about a noise that sounds when you turn the car off and the open the door without removing the key. Mine doesn't seem to work any more; Holden claim that it never did and that any mention of the feature in the owner's manual is a "mis-print".

    Or is this a feature that can be switched on or off somehow (Tech 2?)?

    Ta.

    Got both on my Signum - working exactly as described in your excerpt above. It probably can be turned off by Tech 2 - but if yours was working previously then it sounds like something's gone wrong!!

    Thanks @Duncan.

    The headlight reminder works OK. I'm not absolutely certain that the key-in alarm worked. I'm pretty sure that it did but I may be remembering my old Vectra B... I've run into a brick wall with Holden dealers - even rang their customer service who told me "Yes, your car does have that feature" only to later ring me back and say "No, your car doesn't have that, the book's wrong".

    Holden replaced my CIM module a while ago. Maybe the older versions (of the CIM module) were configured differently to newer ones? Just a guess...

    Unless they didn't Tech 2 it properly after the new CIM module? Just a thought? Can you not test that feature on another Vec - either at a dealers or a friends?

    I suspect the Holden lady I spoke to just quoted from the owner's manual. I guess many people don't bother to read it...

    Unfortunately Vectra C's aren't too common here (none of my friends have them ). I tried a 2005 model at a dealer and it didn't have the feature, but I'm not absolutely convinced that mine (built Dec 2002) never had it.

    Think he's sorted it now mate, this thread is 3 years old . You dont need your key in the ignition to have your radio on, just press the button.

    LOL, sounds like your dealers are the same as ours.
