I get a warning buzzer for leaving the lights on but I'm not sure about the parking lights, will have to check this. I know the senny and the cav had warning buzzers for lights but not for parking lights.

...... And to switch off parking light, means turning on ign, cancelling indicator, then ign off again.
:-? Now I'm completely confuddled?  :-?
You must be talking about facelift cars then ..... cos on my PRE face lift you just cancel the indicator.

That's how I thought they worked as well :-?

Most of the recent vauxhalls we've had have had the parking light option, caused the daughter numerous flat batteries by leaving the indicators one. She never did seem to learn.

The pocket on the back of passenger seat is hanging off on one side thats why i was interested. I know the heaters work on the rear seats as the kids have been trying to toast each other.

Not tried the heaters on mine yet but for other reasons I am interested in the instructions for removing the leather cover.

I've not checked myself but I would have thought the connector would be under the seat. Once at the connector you can uncouple it and check you get 12 volts to it and you also measure the resistance of the heater pad with a multi-meter. I would think the resistance should be a couple of hundred ohms but can't say for sure.

Light does come on. Looks like 2 seats down 2 to go.

Ok, I assume you've checked the fuse, and all the connections to the heating pad/switch.

is the light coming on on the switch?

only asking because I have one that has a poor contact and can be quite fiddly to get it to turn on.

Early 97 blimey m8 i thought it was a very late pre-facelift with how clean it is :o[/quote]

I think the photos make it look better than it actually is but it is still pretty tidy, I've seen far worse for the age and mileage.

You have email.
Just had a look on their website http://www.connects2.co.uk and they only list stalk & display adapters for kenwood and sony head units.

Thanks, that does answer a few questions for me :y

The connects2 drives the display and relays the steering controls. The only reason I modified it was that the controls from the autoleads unit were better in my opinion.
I have since been told that the telephone wiring loom affects the connects2 box but as I bought both cheap on fleabay it was easier to mod than buy the correct model.
If your just after the display driver its the connects2 you need.
If it will help pm me your email and I'll send you the fitting instructions.

Thanks  pm sent :y

Suppose I should look for the connects2 adapter.

Just got the display working along with the wheel controls on my sony mp3 cd player, bonus is i can use the stereo without fitting the face to it. Less crap in my jacket pocket in the van all day at work.

Sounds like you've got it sorted there. I can see from the thread where you sorted it all out that you used two adapters to give you the functionality you wanted, which bit gives you the display?

You may be right about the adapter, maybe I should look at disconnecting the signal to the MID so the date stays up?
I currently have a panasonic head unit which plays mp3s etc, and was thinking of upgrading to something with DAB but not too sure what to go for. Not sure about Subs as it's an estate and not sure where I would put one. Amp is a possibility but I need to replace a speaker as well, front passenger door speaker sounds duff and distorted.

All the main makes do, ie, Sony (would not recommend a headunit from them!), Pioneer, Alpine, JVC, Kenwood. However it is not a cheap item!

Your problem will the limited room behind the headunit if you do this in a pre-facelift car. Things get a little tight back there.

Personally I would be more concerned with the steering controls adaptor.

I know about the limited space, I'm sure I could sort something there. My omega was registerd early 97 so was a late 96 build I think so hence steering wheel controls (or adjustable steering column) to worry about just the MID display.
