    Cool Age Old Traction Control Issue

    ESP (Traction Control) switch worked a dream. now to try control myself from chewing my tyers up too much

    The car i have a 4th month 2003 holden vectra zc cdx (3.2 v6 auto) will put pics up on the site when i get them sometime tomorrow for anyone interested in seeing (mainly for those who want to do it themself so they can see what we are talking about) trouble was that i got the switch from holden and they charge a arm and a leg for it $53 australian

    so because of this i might look at what my dad is doing with his bike stuff and buying the parts over the net from moto bins as it actually ends up cheaper that way even including the postage just have to find a site that i can do this from preferbly vx or will keep my eyes out on ebay as i want the chrome door handles they just finish the side of the car off. anyone know of a site i could do this from?

    That's not a bad price, switches etc tend to be around £20.

    You could try LMF though.

    Glad you got it to work on your motor.
    A quick and easy way to remove the blanking plug is to get some "putty" like stuff, over here we call it Blu Tac, fasion it into a blob then press it firmly onto the blanking plug and pull the blu tac, the blanking plugs just pulls out with the blu tac then, leaving no damage at all.

    Have you put a Sports Switch in yet ,it goes below the TC switch, it might not function, but it does away with another blanking plug.
