    Tech2

    I saw someone said in a thread the other day saying they could put your car on tech2. Don't remember where they were though!

    Anyone local to Sussex be able to help me out?

    Failing that I'll go to Vaux and just speak to a mechanic - offer him a drink or something!

    Basically I'm a tight git and don't wanna pay some stupid inflated Vaux price for playing with a computer!

    I don't want it for nothing, but what I mean is, I don't want some snotty nosed receptionist pulling random figures out the air and add VAT to everything. Just a swift tenner and a handshake from a mech!

    I got problems with my ABS and TC, the lights keep coming on after about 6miles, then the speedo just drops. Only resets when the cars been off for about half hour. Tried my mates garage today, but he's only got as good as tech 1 apparently, it didn't work.

    The car hasn't gone into "get you home mode" (yet) but it's still annoying.

    I know roughly what I've done!

    Fair shout, I didn't mean it to sound the way it reads.

    Its quite a limited bit of kit, I have only ever seen it used at Vauxhall or by one of the tuners.

    Good Luck with finding someone either way !

    For a basic code check it should only cost you around £15

    The top bloke at regal stuck it on tech 2 today, wouldn't accept money for doing it!

    He's cleared the (rather long) log of errors, it seems to have calmed down the problem, it took ages for the ABS and TC lights to come on on the way home - but they did eventually! Speedo hasn't dropped since. So half sorted - but I know what the problem is now.
    Again, big thanks to Regal!
