    Could be a loose/dodgy abs plug or the CIM may be giving problems. The Cim is a module that sits just behind the steering wheel that controls those instruments.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Hi thanks for those tips will try the battery disconect in the morning will have a look behind steering coloumn suspect it may be that because the indicators are working but not on the dash ,it;s a shame as I had nothing to complain about this vectra had it for 3 years it;s on lpg so has saved me a fortune,still it is running so will have to be carefull to keep below speed limit

    Went to main dealer this morning,they have got it working but say it needs a new dash assembly,with what they did this morning it will cost £275,they say the dash is a exchange item,sounds weird to me,I never like this exchange bit,they are nearly always scams,Citroen has one with there diesel engines there is a filter near the diesel tank when it gets clogged up it is a exchange unit no Citroen dealer keeps then on the shelf as they cost £500 to stock so it is a exchange unit coming to nowhere near £500 seems the old filters are cleaned using ultrasound or something.
    I have booked it in for Wednesday as I am moving next Friday so need a car,I surpose I have to pay something back I have owned the vectra for 3 1/2 years and it has saved me £4000 in fuel bills as it is on LPG,so about time I gave something back

    Hi Soulman not sure took them about 3/4 hr,was tempted to pay ?? for the repair and take a chance that it lasted more than a hour or two,but as I say moving next week so have to be mobile,will the new dash come with no mileage on it? if not how will I know if they have changed it,absolute pain in the butt,I have only just sorted the fuel guage problem,which had the gauge shutting down for a while then coming on again,found a dodgy connection at the LPG tank at least that did not cost me anything, I see you are in Essex so you may know Quest dealership they are at Braintree and Maldon,I am using Maldon.

    If I remember correctly the repair exchanges are about £100 to trade. So with their time etc...£275 isnt disasterous. The other option you do have is grabbing a 2nd hand unit from ebay and going to a mileage correction company to change the mileage to the correct mileage for your car.
