    Trip Computer

    Had the Astra in for a service and mentioned about having the trip computer activated as is disabled in the design.

    All done for £22. Approx 15min labor. Was hoping would be free as was already going to be plugged in for a software update for the immobilizer system but never mind!

    If you have the BC button it seems like a nice cheap mod to get done

    ~However im starting to beleave that not all dealers have the same

    Seems they don't share any information! There was only one mechanic there who had ever done it before and one service chap who knew anything about it.

    Let me know how you get on and if you get no joy I will go down with ya or ring em.
