    Check control needed ?

    I've just gone from a Vectra CDX to an Astra and am already missing my little computer so I thought I'd have a crack at the TID to MID conversion.
    I did this once on a Mk3 LS and from the info I have it seems the same in principal but I remember having to get hold of a 'Check Control' box from a donor Mk3 Sport to provide the brake/headlight/sidelight checks - do I need the same thing for my '02 Mk4 2.2 SRi ?
    If so am I going to have be VERY lucky finding one from a donor GSi or something ?

    Unless you want the warnings for the lights being out it's not going to be needed
