When I engage reverse gear, handbrake or reach 30 mph my speedometer, fuel gauge, temp gauge and rev counter all go off. It also affects my elec windows. I have to switch off ignition and they only start working after i pull off. When i switch on my ignition the red engine light and abs light is on but goes off when when I pull off is it a faulty relay, and if so which one and number? Thank you in anticipation, frustrated Bob!

I have a 2.2 diesel vectra estate, and the inside light stopped working. I checked the bulbs and the on/off button, both OK. There is a black plastic panel on the door edge, level with the outside door handle. Someone told me there is some sort of sensor device that needs cleaning to make it work again. If correct, how is it done?

The vehicle was just used. The power windows were not responding so a technician tried to fix it but failed. The exhaust was making noise so it was repaired. Just after these works the engine won't start. When I turn on the ignition key, all the lights come on but with an error signal showing a locked padlock with a sling around it. The car simply won't start. What should I do.

My central locking is working, it seems not to put on the double lock, however I cannot get the petrol flap open, it seems to have locked when I double locked it, but unable to unlock. All doors lock and unlock fine - Any views, need to go on a long journey, only have petrol for one way. Any help would be appreciated.

Answers

The lock for the fuel flap can be accessed by removing some of the trim in the boot on the same side as the flap. From there you can manually open the lock and disconnect the wiring. I had to disconnect mine, on a Vectra B hatchback. Alternatively the wiring may have come loose and you can reconnect it. Mark from Greater London

Hi, baffled! Was driving along when the battery light came on power went so pulled over. Car now won't start. All electrics seem to be working. Tried to jump start it but nothing. Towed it home, the speedo dials, rev counter and petrol gauge don't move. Any ideas? 5 days ago my car wouldn't unlock with key fob could this be anything to do with it?

Answers

Howdy, had exactly the same with mine apart from the keyfob episode, googled it, I remember exactly but a specific 1st thing of turning ignition switch and re setting trip milometer at same time did the trick, hope it works for you too. Best of luck, Roger Roger Lewis from Lancashire

My car won`t turn over, all usual lights on the dash. It`s not even trying to turn over. Maybe a relay or fuse? It went with a pull start and goes fine, just won`t start. I don`t think it`s the starter because it`s as if no power is going to it. I`m going to check fuses with multimeter
