    my trip computer broke - would any trip computer work?

    I have a 2001 astra coupe turbo and my MFD Trip Computer thing has broken i have sources about 5 from vauxhall breakers and they have the same 32 pin plug on but the guy there tells me you have to get the exact same one otherwise it will not work, is this true or would any MK4 astra trip computer work as a replacement as long as the plug plugs in.

    hello - anybody

    *edit that

    firstly the bloke thought that astra's vectra's and omega's screens were all the same size and plugs were all the same so in actual fact he had none for sale.

    and secondly aparrently as long as the trip computer is actually from an MK4 astra and has the same 32 pin plug then they are all interchangable.

    Please i am desperately still looking for one

    I would say the new trip computer would have to come from same model of car as it may be that if one came from a car with different size tyres it may give faulse readings

    Maybe someone could check on the EPC to see if they list different ones for different models

    it was was £280 all in but saying that vauxhall wanted £288 plus vat for one but i've only just got the car and fairly cheap at that (£4000 for a 2002 astra coupe turbo) so couldnt afford not to put it right really, its all the car needs
