    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Default Roller Steering Controls - Intermittant fault

    After some advice please peeps!

    Its actually on my wifes Astra Design (54reg) It has the same roller controls for the computer and volume etc as on my 2006 Vec SRi.

    The thing is, often they just dont work, not matter how hard you push them up & down, nothing no computer changes what so ever. And the volume one on the right will change radio station rather than volume! I have to be really rough with them to get them working, but they stop again after few days.

    The car has a warranty on in... so into vauxhall today! Guess what... not doing it! Typical as it was doing it last night... but granted it works & it doesnt.

    They tried to pull wool over my eyes saying it could be more than just the buttons, could be the control panel etc! I told him i'd read on forums they are a common fault (bit of a lie that!) But vauxhall said 'dont listen to forums otherwise you will replace alsorts' So I reliably informed them that im NW rep for vvoc.com, and have been for over 6 years now.... Any, going of track there!

    My question would be, is this a common fault? could it just be buttons? If so, if I buy them, can i just plug them in & it will work... or does it need ****** techII doing??

    My wifes going spare bless her! She hates how they dont work properly!

    Cheers for any advise!

    Mike

    Has your dealer tried reprogramming the CIM? The next step - they could try a new wiring harness under the airbag (cat no. 62 92 683 from FR-2262). If that wont help IŽd say the CIM needs replacement. On Astra I have not seen steering wheel scroll buttons to fail yet.

    Thanks for that... dealer said it 'could be the CIM' but they wont replace it unless its broke! So we have to go back when the faults showing again! Which is pain in the arse as its intermittent!

    Common fault, either the CIM faulty or the cable going from the wheel to the car.
