    Default flickering headlight

    anybody know why my headlights keep flickering, 1.8 sri 56 plate, just seems a bit weird and wandering if it,s a normal vauxhall thing...oh and also do other people have difficulty selecting reverse gear on cold starts, mines a bit tempremental in the cold but fine once it,s warm...is this just another thing that you have to live with owning a vauxhall or is it something that may require attention cos it's still under warranty for 10 weeks so i could get it done if it may be a problem...thanx in advance guys..

    I think you will find that it is common for the headlights to flicker. I take it that they do it when you are moving slowly or stationary and when you move the steering. This probably is because the power steering takes a lot of power, hence it makes the lights flicker. You may notice that the display on the dash dims too.

    It shouldn't be too difficult to select reverse when cold. I think I would call the garage while I can Be prepared for the "all vectras do this" comments from them!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
