    Default Autobox problem

    Car is going back into the dealers on Wednesday to look at the auto box again. Can anyone post the field remedy and text for the 'coolant in the transmission fluid' problem, as I think this is the fault. Can't find the link or details anywhere. Hopefully this will prompt the dealer into contacting VX for a transmission replacement.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Do a search on "V6 auto problem" on the Vectra-Sport site - that should point you in the right direction.

    THE BULLETIN NUMBER IS E0001650 ASK THEM TO FIND ON TIS.

    HOPE THIS HELPS

    AF23/33 transmission - No driving torque because of cooling water in transmission oil
    Models: Engines: Option:
    Vectra-C 2002...2004,Signum 2003...2004 Z22SE| Z32SE| Y22DTR,Z22YH| Z32SE| Y22DTR AF23/33 Transmission
    Complaint: Loss of the transmission functionality in isolated cases. The following symptoms may occur occasionally: - failure codes P0700, P0715 or P0720 set - slight loss of cooling water - sediments in coolant expansion tank
    Cause: Improper function of the sealring at the oil cooler conncetion. This can cause the penetration of a little quantity of cooling fluid into transmission oil.
    Production: An improved oil cooler/radiator has been introduced in production as of VIN W0L0ZCF3541042598 (Rüsselsheim) and VIN W0L0ZCF6848035197 (Ellesmereport).

    Remedy:
    In case of customer complaint proceed as follows:
    If only DTC P0700, P0715 or P0720 is stored please carry out TSB 1685.
    Open the black cover of the valve body on the transmission housing carefully. If water and/or white sediments are found in the cover the transmission has to be replaced together with the oil cooler/radiator assembly.

    Rob,

    Thanks for posting the VIN numbers - at least I can relax (I hope) in the knowledge that my car should have had the improved oil cooler fitted during production.

    Default tc switch

    traction control...... dont know if i can help

    The brake system of the Vectra-C is of a modular design. For vehicles with Z 16 XE and Z 18 XE engines, ABS is fitted as standard and traction control (TC) and the electronic stability program (ESP) are optionally available.

    In conjunction with Z 22 SE, Z 32 SE, Y 20 DTH and Y 22 DTR engines, ABS/TC is standard and ESP is optional.

    The extension from ABS to ABS/TC is contained in the ABS control unit.

    The further extension to ABS/TC/ESP requires an additional yaw rate sensor and a steering angle sensor.

    do you know if you hane tracction control??????
