    Default New ECU Software

    Took my Vectra to the dealers today to try and diagnose why there was so much lag. They couldn't find anything but did upgrade the ECU with new software. Seems to have helped the problem.

    Is there any published information on what new software upgrades rectify/change?

    There is a software update, (a couple of major ones to note) one which cured a slight juddering problem at a certain rev range and the 2nd one alters the cars characteristics of the torque/power band to try to save parts of the drivetrain from premature failure.

    Can you just book your car into the dealers to get this ECU update or do you need to go in with a problem in the first place?

    When my CDTI was in for the 3rd injector - they updated the ECU software....... When I asked the question they said that they would only do it of there was a reported problem and its not standard as part of a service or anything.
