    op-com?

    Hey,

    I want to get my cruise control activated and i've seen that some of you on here have mentioned something called op-com?

    I thought why not get this and do it myself, at least i'll be able to do a diagnostic as well.


    What version software would i need? (2006 astra 1.9cdti sri sporthatch)
    Is it hard to use?
    Could i damage my ecu at all from this?
    Where is the best place to get it from?
    How much is this program and lead in total?

    Thanks is advance

    Tech 2 is the dealer software/interface. Opcom is a cheaper(much) version and will do most things you will need. The ones on ebay are chinese copies but most people use them successfully. You only need to use it once to pay for itself. You can do some damage but the "normal" options are pain free (viewing data and clearing stored fault codes etc) A friend was using mine on his veccy c and when he had finished the car would not start, not a click, nothing......1 panicky hour later found that it now had an immobiliser fail stored. reset the the immobiliser (in opcom) and all was well.
