    Tech 2 Programming Guides

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking to try and tap up a friendly local Vaux Tech with some beer money to update some bits on Tech 2 and thought I might find it easier if i can just present them with the basic instructions rather than keep fingers crossed that they can find them (if they're even willing to search!)

    I have tracked down some of the info but looking for someone "in the know" to help me with my quest!

    I have a guide for the Cruise Control

    Engine Variant configuration- cruise control- modify to present

    IPC Variant configuration- cruise control- modify to present


    CIM steering Variant configuration- cruise control
    - modify to present

    CIM steering Variant configuration- country code- modify to GREAT BRITAIN



    Does anyone have access to a similar guide to:-

    a) Make the doors auto-lock when you set off (yeah i know i can just press the button, i just like it thats all!)

    b) Activate the windows for up and down off the remote.


    If anyone has the part number to the little knob / valve thing in the Glove box to chill it (or cook it! lol) that'd be ace too!

    Cheers

    I've heard (could just be a rumour) that unless you get to someone with out-dated tech 2 software they won't be able to make your doors autolock. Reason given was some kind of danger getting people out of car after an accident.

    And I have a feeling, although again could be wrong, that whether or not your windows go up and down on remote is not tech 2able. That's purely gut feeling though.

    I would ask the tech thats going to do the work whether he can do what your asking him to do before trying to teach him how to suck eggs.

    Well yeah... not quite as unsubtle as that! lol

    I have read more on this site and others that most garages look blankly and say "no mate you have to change the ECU" or some other tosh!

    Will obviously start along the lines of "can you do it" and if they say its not possible i can provide the details!

    I tried this with my local VX
    I asked them to activate my CC and they point blank turned around and said unless they have fitted everything it cannot be done. I told them the whole research i had done into it and to my amazment i got a £260 + VAT.

    They don't want to know unless they can rape you.
