    Default Newbie with a problem list all sorts please help

    Hi just collected my vetra c 2002 ls 2.0 dti and it was cheap so has some problems and was wondering if anyone can help with any of the below.

    1- Key fob doesnt lock or unlock car have to insert key and then the alarm goes off, the red light glows on fob when button pressed?
    (can i turn the alarm off fully and just use the key?)

    2-Boot doesnt want to unlock on the button on door again need key?

    3-Dials die or flicker aware this could be cim thing or abs thing but how can I check? when they die leaves battery light and abs lght on and thats it no em light. note that the brake symbol is constantley on on the dash display

    4-the radio is in safe mode no number just safe how can i get this to allow me to code again that is when i get a code? (drove car back 2 hours with no music)

    5-The centre display just shows 01-01-2000 and 0:00 and temp and never ever changes?

    6-When the dials die after you cant use the cruise control for a while is this linked?

    7-Also read about auto lights but twice now when lights were off on dial the head and tail lights have come on by themselves?


    Any help is much appreciated makes it sound like a complete nail but it isnt that bad at all.

    Cheers

    1) The key may need recoding to the car -tech 2 job.
    2) not sure
    3,5,6&7) could all be the CIM. £400ish from the dealers and it needs a tech 2 session to set it up and get it working. You may need new pads if the brake symbol is on, or just a new sensor cable.
    4) The radio needs its code. Its on the car pass that should be with the car, if its not then The dealers can get it for you and most charge £25ish for it.

    Sounds like the battery has been off for an extended peroid of time and the car has losts lots of its settings. The Cim is the main problem imo. It could be the abs plug. Take it off, clean the contacts and plug it back in. See what happens.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Check car battery...could be dying and causing all sorts of glitches.
    Clean and make sure you have a tight contact on the ABS plug.
    Check key fob battery as well.
    Plus all stated above.

    I have the dash fault with mine. I just quickly turn the ignition off and on but be careful if you do it whist moving as the power steering stops working for a few seconds.


    Press the brake and clutch peddle and then try the cruise control.

    New CIM is around £360 fited by VX.

    Will check battery to mo checked abs plug and used some contact cleaner. Key fob battery new looks like a cim unit.

    Is there any companies that can supply cheaper vx can fit and programme just not keen on the £250 for the unit.

    Oh sorted boot seems had gone out of sync and the radio is now ready for the code which has been ordered today from vx so hopefully music by wednesday woop woop.

    Cheers.
