    Tech 2 is the diagnostic handheld tool that Vauxhall technicians use to interface with your Astra.


    Independant garages can have them, but they are expensive to buy personally... (couple of k I believe)

    tech 2 can change settings in the ecu, and also reset/activate things, if the components are there.

    You should have a chat with Thorney Motorsport (TMS), they are in Milton Keyenes and are an independent vauxhall approved workshop/tuner.

    Helpful too
