Hi, first of all I'm new here, however I regret that my first post is about a problem.
I have a Vectra C 2004 model, now I've seen a lot of people with this same problem, however they got different solutions to their problems.
I'll tell you how it happens:
1. The smaller lights at the bottom of the dashboard display come on.
2. A bigger light will come on the in squarish display (either a steering wheel with an exclamation mark, or a guy wearing a seatbelt )
3. The needles will will all drop, and all of the instruments on the display are gone including the mileage!
4. It comes on when I restart the car, or whenever it feels like it.
I must note that during step 2, if I press the hazard lights, the sequence stops, and this problem does not occur.
I actually have a fault code: U2103 - which is something about communication with the CAN-BUS. I told Vauxhall that I had this diagnostic done, but they seemed very keen to charge me £69 for another diagnostic because they weren't sure I had the right code.
So, I've seen various solutions, change the CIM module, clean the ABS plug, change the fuses (I checked them and they seemed fine), quite frankly the CIM module sounds like a huge job, I think I'd like to try to clean the ABS plug first. The problem is I'm sure how to pull the things out.
Could anyone perhaps instruct as to how to remove this thing, do I need to disconnect the battery in order to do this?
