    • Hi guys, lately my central locking is getting worse and worse, when I say worse I mean like I’m needing to be closer and closer to the car before it’ll unlock, sometimes I’m standing next to it and it won’t unlock, same with both keys flip and the spare both had new battery’s to as I thought it may be the cause but it wasn’t, question is is there some sort of resync I can try like the fords have? My 2009 cmax was doing exactly the same until I found out you can just put the key in turn to position 2-3 4 times until you hear a bleep then press the lock/unlock which worked a treat and now can literally unlock it from like 10 meters away lol, but this mk5 seems not so easy? Or am I missing a trick here to resync? thanks guys
    • Hi all On our Vectra C SRi the front passenger door window switch has stopped working, and the drivers side won't be far behind as the window switches need pressing quite hard now - they're part of the switch pack so assume I'll need a whole unit. Is anyone breaking a Vectra and have these available? Some of the prices on Ebay are just silly! Thanks!
    • Multiple codes suddenly appearing like that immediately point to an ECU failure. That said some could be old codes that weren't cleared so if possible get the car recovered to a garage so they can be cleared, then see if any re-appear (or try an OBD reader). I had this happen years ago with a Ford F*cus, and it was caused by a solder joint breaking on the plug into the back of the dash cluster where the ECU was located, causing all manner of codes and sudden loss of throttle like you describe. A simple re-solder of the plug fixed it, but took months to locate!
    • Hi all Just bought a nice & cheap 2007 SRI. It's a little battered but has a strong heart (1.9 CDTi). One thing I'm looking to address straight away is the front passenger seat which won't move as the adjustment cable has kinked. I have a replacement on order but how do you get the old one off? Is it a seat out job?  
    • Hi all I'm Chris and just joined after getting a cheap Vectra C SRI. Initially as a stop-gap as our only vehicle, a converted camper is currently locked away 400 miles away as the RAC decided we were too far from home to be recovered. Thing is I'm already loving the Vectra! It's my second, the first being an A around 14 years ago which was killed by Tesco's dodgy fuel if anyone can remember back to 2007!
