    cheers chris for showing me hidden menu

    well chris at regal showed me sumit friday,.
    he showed me how 2 access hidden menu, so could tell if it was ok to boot it, he told me that i shudnt boot it if coolant was under 70 degrees or over 90 degrees, so theres me thinkin how the hell i know that,lolol

    he told me to hold down settings until i hear a beep and then press BC 5times and it will show u, and by christ he was right, perhaps i shud have read the owners manual:

    Wheres the settings and bc buttons? (barely ever drive it so I dont know lol). If it work and it comes up, will it return to normal when you switch the ignition off? He'll worry about me buggering up his car lol. Can anything be changed from these menus?

    works when i first tried on my 1.9CDTi, so cant see why it wouldnt,

    never actually looked what it displays though, just saw loads of numbers
    Drives - 08 Astra SRi XP 1.9CDTi 150

    It only works if you have that display in your car, those with the basic, outside temp and radio station display can not show the info.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
