    Default 55 plate SRi woes

    6 months of ownership and I'm getting hacked off with the vectra despite the fact i love it to bits!

    -3 x limp home mode (cured when cleaned EGR)
    -2 x bulb failure light - but disappeared the next day... !?
    -rear wiper not working
    -blower works on 1 and 4 but most of the time not on 2 or 3


    todays new problem... 'external in' cutting in briefly and muting my CD whilst i'm listening to it... even though there isn't a phone in the cradle!!

    is there some sort of central control unit that could account for the wierd problems with bulbs, wiper, blower and anything relating to the inputs on the radio!?

    ... or does my veccie have CANBUS gremlins?!

    blower only on 1 and 4 sounds like the resistor pack problem. search resistor pack and you should find some useful info.

    Bulb failure, may actually be a dodgy connector on a bulb. have you checked them???? Although thats not really a fault with the car at this stage.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The lamp failure could be a lamp on its way out.
    The filaments weld there self back together when they arc but this only lasts a short while. If you lightly flick the lamp with your finger it will usualy break the faulty lamp.

    i thought the heater problem might be the resistor pack but it's intermittant. would have thought the resistor pack would fail and it would only work on 1 & 4... not sometimes on 2 & 3 as well?

    ok... i'll check the bulbs out.

    the 'external in' one is a bit wierd. perhaps i should check behind the dash for water ingress! might explain some of the problems...

    ...and then driving back home last night my oil light comes on. i panic... pull over and check the level. it's at the max mark!

    What would cause that if the level is fine? Drop in oil pressure?

    ...or Gremlins!?
