    Thumbs up Another successful ESP switch

    Another ESP (traction control) switch install successful and fully working, now just have to control myself to stop chewing up my tyres too much. It is a Holden Vectra ZC 4/2003 3.2 V6 auto.

    I will post pictures as soon as I can so people who want to do this can see what to look for and where. The easiest way to fit it without doing damage to anything was remove the radio and remove the blank then while it was out (because I hate having a switch there if it doesn’t work) tested it and it was a positive so refitted the radio and drove off to confirm I could spin the wheels and sure enough it worked total of 2 mins from start to install.

    Also I got this switch from Holden for AU$53 not sure how this compares to your prices there but I am interested in also getting a set of chrome handles for my car and Holden doesn’t have them plus I imagine in comparison to your prices it would be higher as my dad buys his motorbike stuff online from the uk through motobins and ends up been cheaper then here in Australia including postage. Is there any site I could something like this from preferably direct vx or very good quality?

    the site didn't work sorry about the double just wondering how to get it deleted or what ever (typed it out again to find out it worked the firstime)

    Done mine as well, its on the 1.8 engine so it only lights up, but it looks better than the blank button!

    I've just ordered an esp switch, i have ESP+ (well i'd better have as it cost me £400 to add ESP+when i ordered the car) but the car hasn't got a switch above the sports button.. I've asked the dealers and they say the car defo has esp+ and its all done automatically.. So whether the switch will work or not i dont know, but i'll be happy enough not to have a boring blank to look at..

    I think i see a pic of yours, from when you fitted your VXR steering wheel and leather interior and see the esp button above the sports button, thats why i asked the dealers why i haven't got one, I might take it to another dealers and ask them to put it on tech 2 and see if it has ESP+ fitted, if not then i'll be wanting the car as i ordered it and i've paid for ESP+..! i get the ESP+ light up on the dash when i switch the ignition on though.. Perhaps its more penny pinching from VX..

    That would be very helpful if you could..

    I just re read the manual and on page 199 it does mention a switch to turn it on or off, it also says on page 198 that the ESP+ lights up for a few seconds when the ignition is switched on, i get the green skidding car light up for a few seconds but no switch..
    I'll go mad at the dealers if it hasn't got ESP+ after i ordered it and paid for it..

    All (German, Benelux, ...) Opel Vectra/Signum have ESP+ but no switch (not anymore); and yes there is an icon that lights up indicating that the ESP is ok, but on mine it is orange (it is situated below in the center between the two clocks)
