    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    TC may NOT work even if the blue plug is present, and if it doesn't I seem to remember from posts on here that it was a wiring issue (missing wiring and/or connections?). As far as I know it's got nothing at all to do with Tech 2.

    Vehicle : Opel Insignia

    Trim : Cosmo

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI

    Year : 2011

    Default

    tech2 has nothing to do with it: the cable to the ABS control unit (pin 3) will be missing; this pin must be grounded to switch TC off

    some guys managed to do this; have a search on the forum: thousands of posts about it

    Found the one needed
