Not Starting on first turn and Service Theft Deterrent System
Hi Guys,

Need your help folks.

A month or so ago, I was getting a random "Service Theft Deterrent System" message coming up randomly and my start/stop wasnt working.

So googled it and everything pointed towards a dodgy battery, especially as the start/stop want working.

Anyway, I replaced the battery for another good second hand one and low & behold, the start/stop started working so that nailed that S/S problem. However randomly I was still getting a "Service Theft Deterrent System"

Cruise control not working
Hi guys,

The cruise control is no longer working on my car or is temperamental intermittent problem. It used to be just an occasional thing now it has become more frequent. Basically you turn on cc, light turns white, then you try to engage cruise control it just not working anymore not turning green, tried all sorts of methods on the controls to get it to work but no avail.

AFL basic problem (bulb not working)
Just been out to check the AFL on my astra (had it a month but never been out in the dark ;-) )

Everything seemed to work AOK apart from the fact the main Beam Assist does not work as quick as I can do on my own (a few people flashed me :-( )  No worries on that score.

When I got back I had a look at the lights and found that one of them was not "on".  I is on the nearside.

It is the one nearest the grill - I have tried to attach a JPEG (only 228KB) but it will not let me

Aux device not detected
Good morning, new user here.

I have a 2012 GTC wich has an irritating problem with the 3.5mm aux input.  Searching the interwebs I have not found anyone with the same issue, yet alone a solution so thought I would sign up and ask the question.

Using the 3.5mm aux input there is often a delay in it detecting that anything has been connected, sometimes it works straight away, but rarely.  
More often, what happens is that once I connect a a device and start playing music through it I am gre

V5754: Indicator sound not loud enough
Hello all,

does anyone have a solution for the almost unhearable indicator sound that the little extra speaker produces.

I put it right below the unit, right behind the cover and it still is barely audible when I'm listeining to music.

Is there a secret setting in the options? Has anyone replaced the speaker?

Any help is appreciated.

Astra GTC CD 600 Blutooth will not delete devices

Just bought a 2015 Astra GTC with the CD600 head unit, the previous owner has filled all 5 device spaces. The unit will not let me delete any, after pressing delete and yes.. the unit just hangs and nothing happens. The unit is 100% fine in all other areas and runs very smooth.  Any idea how to delete these devices so I can pair my phone??

TPMS Sensors on wheels but not on car
Hi all,

Last night I purchased some new wheels for my car, and I suspect they may have TPMS sensors fitted, but my car doesn't have TPMS.

I have a couple of questions:

  1. Can I still use these wheels with the sensors installed? 
  2. Is it possible to replace the sensors with normal valves?
