    Default Dash light disco!!!!!!

    Hi all!

    Been quiet on here, kinda had alot on at home and a job/career change, but getting back into the swing of it all now.

    Hope you all had a great xmas, and didnt have too much festive 'spirit'!!!!! LOL!

    Anyhow, the reason for posting on this section of our beloved forum.......

    My Vectra, 2002 3.2 Elite, has taken to providing an on-the-move disco for me and my passenger of late.

    Driving along, to coolant light displays in the little window, then goes out. this happens occassionally, but when it does, it comes on and goes off quite a few times. I have checked the level, its fine.

    ??????????

    Secondly, the traction control lamp comes on, and stays on for a while, even though the driving style and conditions at the time mean it shouldnt come on.

    ??????????

    Then the ABS lamp joins it for a while then goes out.

    ??????????

    Then the battery lamp shows itself.

    ??????????

    Then when all are lit, they go out, the car/spanner indicator appears. The analogue fuel gauge drops to zero. Then all is fine.

    This all happens whilst driving, the car feels fine.

    What the hell is going on?!

    Any ideas kind peeps?

    Sounds like it could be a dodgy CIM module to me. One really for the dealer to plug a Tech 2 in to see if any error codes are stored.

    I thinks is related to the problem some of us had in the past with the poor electrical contact on the ABS plug.
    Check this thread...it`s either this or what Santa D mentioned HTH
