    Default T/c switch ????

    Hi guys, i've read some posts about fitting the switch in the blank cover 3rd down from the right. They mention there should be a blue plug behind it but it depends on whether you have the esp+ fitted or not for it to work. My question is i pulled the blank out and i did not see any plug at all does all vectra's have the plug. Maybe mine's dropped down behind. she's an 02 2.2 DTI

    Cheers

    some have them some don't it's all a bit hit and miss if they work, i fitted one to my car with the blue plug there and it does't work, light's up and look's good though, so not a total waste of money

    It is set back a little but I would have thought you would have the blue plug behind the blanking cover. I don,t think the ESP+ makes any difference either. My motor is a 3.2V6 it had ESP+ as standard, but no T/C switch so I fitted the switch.......................................It did not work. It seems to be a bit hit and miss to weather it will work or not, there have been many threads about the T/C switch over the years, and it seems to work on some cars but not on otheres, there does not seem to be any set patern, it is not specific to any engine size or fuel age or trim, Have anothere look for the plug, if you find one then just buy thr switch and hope for the best.

    Do you just push it and hope it connects or do you need to find the blue plug
