    Default ESP/TC SWITCH installation

    hi, I have a problem, could you help?
    I own a vecta c 1.9 cdti 150 hp which, if you could believe, hadn't a ESP/TC switch.

    so, i've bought one and put it in his place, baut, surprise, not working

    could anyone tell me what's the problem?!
    I need so much to deactivate manually the TC!... especially now, when my car is remapped at 200 hp!!!
    pls, pls, pls!!!

    Its not always possible. Its like a 50:50 chance of the switch working. Unless it can be tech 2'd off?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    Default

    There seems to be a bit of "luck of the draw" my 3.2 Elite did not have the switch, but the 3.2 GSI does. So I bought a switch, and mine doen,t work either, strange "eh", Mind you the switch looks better than a blanking plug.
    I have asked and they say it can not be Tech 2ed

    tech2 is no option: if the switch does not work, it means the cable between the switch on the dash and the ABS-box "is missing"
    see this for more; and if your German is ok, here you will find the instructions to fit the missing cable between pin 3 of the ABS-box and the switch

    I had ESP as a factory fit, with IDS+ but didn't get the switch . Had to retrofit the dam thing

    I think big Pete had the same issue also.

    My German is nonexistent, lol.
    Can anyone translate the basis of the PDF on there ?
    I've done this online but you know those translators leave a bit to be desired.
    There are pins in my switch socket so some wiring is there.
    I was just wandering what the relationship is (if any) between the connector block in the passenger footwell where it refers to pin 26, and the mention of pin 3 on the abs connector on the web page.

    For example if we have a wire in pin 26, is this the one to use without the need to go to pin 3 on the abs plug ?
    Also, both methods appear to refer to just one wire, obviously a signal wire, anyone know what the signal is, I would guess it just requires a momentary earth to turn TC on and off ?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default

    Pin 3 ABS module blue/red from the ABS ECU to X1 dash loom plug (pin26) via pins 5 and 6 on the TC switch exiting on the black/brown cable heading back along the X1 dash loom plug (pin25) on the brown wire down to a ground.

    Switch illumination is handled by pins 2 and 4 on the TC switch pin 2 being gray/yellow going to the BCM and pin 4 being a brown down to ground.

    Oooohw sounds like you've sussed a bit of this already.
    Ok, that’s making my head hurt now, lol.
    Do you know exactly what pin is supposed to go to what pin, lol ?

    The PDF, Fildabhilfe or Field Remedy 1508 is only useful for hatchbacks from MY 2002-2003 ! (Doesn't someone have this in English?)
    On these cars the switch was forgotten but the wire between pin 26 in the connector in the footwell and pin 3 in the ABS box is present.
    Other cars need to go directly from the switch to pin 3.
    You can test it by grounding pin 3: the orange lamp on the dash must come on - and/or if you think there is a wire present in pin 26: ground this one first.

    Excellent m8, that’s exactly what I wanted to know thank you very much.
    I kinda figured as much, it certainly mentions exceptions for the estate, so most likely will have to go from scratch.
