    Question Enabling xenon on ecu with tech2?

    So to recap:

    Vauxhall Xenons can be retro fitted

    All that is required is
    1.an earth added to the plug that fits into the headlight
    2. The headlight adjustment motor swapped out for the standard one and then rewired to suit (you will need the plug off the old headlight)
    3.enabling in the under bonnet ECU via Tech2

    There is no need to have the self leveling sensors and no error code is thrown up when they are not fitted.

    No bulb out error codes are thrown up either.

    So thanks go to:

    Shunter and Stevedee3 for their input which led to me to the UECU and my mate Ian for the Tech 2

    Photos to follow when the car is clean.

    Another mod completed on to the the next............
    i have succesfully retrofitted the xenon on my vectra c
    and it works with the engine off (no checkcontrol) and with engine on it flickers very fast
    so it needs to be tech2'd but i went to the opel dealer today and a friend of my works there and he didn't find the function to activate the xenon,
    so my question here is: does somebody know the ehmm the walktrough for activating the xenon?

    and whats the underbonnet ecu? (sorry for the bad english)

    Thanks in advance

    Went to the opel dealer this morning and works like a charm now,
    Thanks for the how-to by kenp

    in the menu i saw that you can enable different options like:
    xenon headlights: present / not present
    Headlight washer: present / not present
    etc.
