    Default Another New Guy Here! Hi Y'All and Happy New Year!

    Just took the step of registering on here (an unusual step for me, as I am admittedley a fairweather user of many different sites ie: read what I need then scarper!).

    This site is excellent. Very comprehensive and a a real nice feel amongst the membership!

    Had a flame red elegance 2.0 dti for a few months and am over the moon with it. I, and many others (including my ol' fella who has driven nothing but 7 series Beamers for the past 10 years) are astounded at the "bang for your buck" of this car! He rates it as good as his beamer at a fraction of the price! Praise indeed!

    Garnered some usefull info on here ("check safeguard" message on GUI.. it's the alarm, which I have since found out has been giving that message after the MOT wash before i bought it. Wire dislodged it seems. Haven't fixed it yet, as I'm not sure quite how much my local Vauxhall staelership will want to relieve me of for this seemingly simple fix. I don't really trust non dealership guys with GUI problems and the like.

    Only other thing I can mention is the indicator stalk... takes some getting used to! In fact I'm almost certain mine might need looked at as it seems to decide randomly wether it does the 3 flashes or stays on till I straighten up, regardless of the pressure I apply. Might take a quick search for that on here, now it's crossed my mind!

    Anyway, hello again and a Happy New Year to you all!

    Welcome to Vectra-C.

    The indicator stalk is a right pain although VX seem hell bent on one push controls being the future as it's on the missus new Astra now. It's a better version TBH.

    You should get three flashes if you push the stalk lightly and the full works when you push it to the top of it's travel so it doesn't sound right unless you need to hone yout technique which is why it's such a pain.

    Easiest way to cancel it BTW is to push the stalk in the direction that you have already indicated. I.E. if you are indicating right push the stalk a bit further right it will cancel.
