    clutch switch on a VXR??

    Im thinking of fitting a cruise control stalk to my astra 2006 VXR, Im sure some of you have done this already, and was wondering if I will need to fit a clutch switch as well as putting it on the tech-2? or does the VXR already have the clutch switch fitted?

    Thanks in advance, John.

    Clutch switch is already there, all you need is the stalk and Tech2 activation.

    ^^^What he said. The Stalks can be had on ebay for around £35 quid, and are easy peasy to change. Tech2 will be about £50. Not bad for a £200 optional extra

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    dealers will tell you that the switch isn't there on some models so they can charge you £50 to look for it, it is there for sure, loads of us have had it done as an aftermarket mod, did mine when it was just a few days old and saved £120 over the optional extra price
    Be Happy

    There is a chance there is 1 wire missing between the clutch switch and ECU, quite easy to add if it is, then it's stalk & programming.

    You need to see if you have the switch first. Tracing the wire through the car is impractical, so only other way is to plug a diagnostic tool in test the switch function.

    So it's not too easy to check out without access to the right kit. Where are you based?
