There's a bunch of stuff I'm needing to ask about with regards to various things on my Vectra. I thought this'd be the best section to do it. Apologies if not, and apologies if it's all covered in other threads. I have done a good bit of searching.
The car's an 06 Vectra SRi 120 with the 1.9 CDTi engine. It's got the remote controls on the steering wheel - I believe this affects what loom it's got and ease of adding bits from other models.
First off: No interior lights in the boot or rear of the 'cabin' is a pain. I saw the thread on retro-fitting a Vauxhall light above the rear seats and got the light unit. However, from what I've been reading I suspect mine won't have the loom and connector just sitting there behind the roof lining (being this later model). Is that correct? If so, what's the workaround? Is there one even?
Second: The boot. Am I stuck with the same no-lighting pain again, or is there a solution again for these presumably later loom cars?
Third: The stereo's playing up, skipping and not reading CDs. It's a CD30. I fancy going for an aftermarket job that will speak to iPods, but if I do that am I going to lose all the non stereo stuff on the display like mpg, trip computer etc?
Fourth: It got a fix under warranty last month (just before it ran out) for a problem where under certain (intermittent) circumstances the engine would behave as if it were unaware of the accelerator being pressed. Not slow pick up or anything, just absolutely no change. A local non-Vauxhall garage could replicate the behaviour, but could not find it reporting any error. They recommended taking it to the local Vauxhall dealer who ended up changing the EGR unit. That seemed to fix it but I've just noticed recently that it'll still sometimes do it, albeit in a mild version of before. Has anyone had this problem? If so, how if you fix it once and for all? Were you able to find a once-and-for-all fix even, or is it a there-may-be-trouble-ahead kind of a thing?
Fifth - Tempted by something like a Tunit box. Does anyone have one? If so, what's it like and has it introduced and tecchie problems / premature failure?
