    Default Vectra Design - 2 questions!

    Hi

    I have 2 questions if anyone knows the answer. In process of buying a 07 design.

    1. When i test drove the car it seemed that i could not activate the cruise control until i was over 50mph (this is the explanation from the seller) but in the manual it states it can be activated from 20mph. Is there any other reason why i may have not been able to activate it?

    2. The activation button so that the alarm does not monitor the passanger compartment did not seem to come on when i pressed it. Is there a specific way to turn this on?

    The garage is now closed and these are my only 2 concerns. Rather than wait until tomorrow to ring the garage was wondering if anyone could advise.

    Many thanks

    Matt

    Cruise control should come on after you hit 20mph. Will only do it after having pressed the brake pedal after starting off (safety feature).

    The activation light will come on but only when you open drivers door.

    You should have to use the brake before it will come on, 20mphish is where mine works from. I think the alarm button just flashes once when you push it. Not 100% sure. But if it doesn't work then its still under the VX warranty anyway.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The alarm if I am correct when you press it, it dissables the sensor for inside the car, and only works once "ie" when you open the door it reverts back to being re-armed inside the car.

    you need to do it each time you intend to alarm the car.

    But if you are sat in the car with the doors shut and you push the button then it should light up or blink! Right?
