    Default Hint to what these symbols mean

    Haven't had a chancwe to take a pic yet.

    On my vectra i have a oil sign with a spanner through it

    also have a steering wheel sign with a "!" through it and when that comes up the indicators don't cancel themselves.

    any pointers. cheers

    The second one sounds like a CIM fault and the first one means your service is due.

    Just noticed you drive a 52 plate, do a search for ABS plug, that could solve your second problem.

    it's a 53 plate if that makes any difference. The 52 plate is my old one.

    No real difference mate, only later vecs didn't suffer with the ABS plug fault. Mine is a 53 plate also, and cleaning the ABS plus cleared my faults. (same as yours) Although it could also be a CIM fault as thats an early Vec fault also.

    If the indicators won't cancel when the steering wheel warning is on then this suggests the CIM fault
    I had this on mine twice and took a photograph the second time, clearly showing the steering wheel and both indicators on, which I then took to the dealership

    I was thinking power steering as it's happened twice today now. Going to check the fluid in a min then top up. When it comes on the steering get heavy but only after i've used the steering a bit.

    i get the same sign on the dashboard + TC/ESP does not work. Sometimes the TC switch works, i can on or off it but when i turn the steering wheel a bit that "!" sign appears and TC sign lights on
    Thinking of doing the zero point calibration for the steering wheel , will see if it makes any difference
