    Red face Got it back - what a difference!

    My Vectra's been in VX in Milton Keynes for a couple of days whilst they sorted out why the engine management light "spanner" kept coming on.
    In the two days they've been busy and seem to have done a lot. I've had a new main ECU unit and another 'something or other', both of which had intermittant faults. The technician - who seemed to me to know what he was doing - has spent ages, this morning, upgrading all the Tech 2 software to the very latest spec - all of it, the engine, the auto transmission and the chassis/electrics.
    Well, it's like a different car. Gear changes are noticably more smooth and at low constant speeds it runs in a lower gear now - giving instant acceleration rather than waiting whilst it changes down. Gears change are at different revs. The engine runs and ticks over smoother and......I find this hard to believe....the indicators haven't played-up once (in sixty miles). Can there possibly have been a Tech 2 upgrade to the indicators? The technician is adament that the whole car's up to the very latest spec so maybe that's fixed to.
    Really happy, and will remain so as long as they sort out the windscreen washers next Friday, when it's booked in again.
    A lot less depressed now!!!!!

    Good news then Doug, I hope it's sorted cos it spoils the experience of owning the car if it plays up.

    Hi Doug ....Very interesting!
    I take it your indicators were previously cancelling by themselves then?
    Are your indicators still behaving themselves? Do you know what they did to fix the problem?
    If so - I shall be back down my Vx dealers hammering on their door to fix mine!!!!!
