    Default Insignia Transport Mode - Loss of Electrics & Recall List

    Hopefully none of us Insignia owners will really ever experience this, but it seems a few of our german friends have had issues where the display had some weird symbol flashing and most of the electrics had been disabled, due to the car going into transport mode.

    VX/Opel have issued a field fix for this.

    It occurs when the ignition key is held in the 3rd start engine position for more than 10 seconds, and will show 'Transport Mode' in the display.
    (Holding the key for another 10 seconds in start position disables it again)

    I noticed when I had my car back from the dealer when it last went in, that there seemed to be a bit of residual grease around the ignition lock, (wasn't there before) and did'nt think much about, I just cleaned it off.

    It looks like some users have had sticking ignition switches so it did'nt spring back when you released it after starting the engine, thereby triggering this transport mode.

    The field fix is to remove the ignition barrel and clean, spray and grease it.
    So obviously the dealer must have also done this when my car was in being reconditioned...

    Other Recalls to date are below.

    1: issued 28-4-09 , Plenubm chamber sealing - water ingress's over the scuttle panel and into the footwells. Your car may well need to have supplimentary sealing applied to it. This is across the top of the buckhead where the rubber seal is, in front of the air in filter.
    It seems some Insignia's have not been sealed.

    2: issued 28-4-09 , CDC controller - Faulty part supplied when new, straight swap and reprogram with new unit from VX

    3: issued 18-6-09, Satnav unit requires software update. TIS 2 Web download via your dealer.

    You would think the water problems associated with the Vectra C Pollen Filter & drain would have flagged up when they put the thing on the drawing board not to have it happen again. If not the same thing, very close .......
