    Default Vectra Gone nuts? maybe it dislikes me.

    Hmm this morning on the way to work,
    Battery light, traction control light, and ABS lights come on
    followed by all the diels setting to 0.
    then they all come back on, followed by fuel low light flickering on and off
    followed then by everything going normal and then. just the tracktion control light staying on which refuses to go off.

    if this wasent enouth got to work ok, parked up went to meter put money in turned arround and was shocked to see someone has the exsact same car as me in the same colour with sames wheels turned arround to get my ticket then realised it was my car....... the handbrake failed and car rolled down the car park luckily no damage this common?

    There is a recall on the hand brake. Not sure how you haven't seen it on watchdog or the many many threads on here. have a search.

    The dials could be a loose/dirty abs plug or the cim starting to play up - again loads of threads so have a little search
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
