    Default OPCOM or TECH 2

    Hi all I am new to this site and the Vectra, I got my First Vectra on sat (52 plate 2.2 Elite). I have been reading a few posts on here about these 2 systems and I wondered how I can tell what one i have? Also the steering controls dont work on it, is there a fuse for these?
    Lastly Im loving the Vectra, Glad I gave up on Fords!!

    If you have buttons on the steering wheel inserts to control radio then it's half CAN. If you have scrolling wheels instead then it's full CAN

    sounds like the buttons are faulty or unpluged? got a spare wheel in the garage, ill have a look to see is the connections are seperate and get back to you.
