    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default CD70 illumination

    Is the backlight only meant to come on when the headlights are on? On previous Vauxhall's I've owned (including a Vectra-C with the CCR2006 fitted) the backlights have always come on when the stereo is switched on, regardless that the headlights aren't on.

    It's annoying at night while sat in the car with the lights off and not being able to see any of the buttons.

    Mine only come on with the headlights and if you switch off the stereo with the lights on half of the centre consol lights go off to!

    As does mine. But the question was "does a CD70 still light up like a christmas tree with the headlights off".

    I think it only does that with the lights on - but I'll test it for you on the school run in 10 mins.

    Thanks chaps. Thought I might have had a wire disconnected somewhere.

    First stereo I've known Vauxhall set up this way. All the others I've owned have illuminated around the volume knob when switched off and with the ignition on, then full illumination when turned on, regardless of the headlights being switched off.
