I watched Sundays final episode of this series last night,not bad at all and hoping the next instalment keeps up the good work :y

From memory the BGT V8 only pushed out around 135 bhp so the Vauxhall by will trounce that by a good margin :y

I completely agree, but within the restrictions they are confined to, the drivers produced a really good race yesterday. :y

They certainly did,best race of the year by far :y :y

You reckon that ifs
On the Veccy C's its normally the Stalk switch that starts to become intermittant, normly a quick wringle or hard button pushes can give a temp but limted fix.

Another on these Cars is once the Cruise detects an issues, (Main ECU) it wont work again untill you do an Ing. Restart, assumi,g the stalked wringle did its job.
Thanks for suggestion. I have rocked the stalk switch vigorously, switched on ignition, no change. Worth a try though.
Yep, worth a try, remember the having to do a Ing. Restart, for the future though or if you do end up changing Clutch / Brake switch.

As far vas I can remeber both the Brake and the clutch switch at as a closed loop ie, short cct, for the Cruise to operate so you could probably bypass and the test again to confirm, check with a meter to confirm first though.  :y
You reckon the cruise only operates when both clutch and brake switches are closed, i.e. brake and clutch not applied. So if I short out the possibly faulty clutch switch, the cruise ought to function normally. Interesting.
I cannot find any wiring diagram in Haynes for the cruise control, though it is fitted to all Vectras. Curiouser and curiouser.

Just change the switch Terry,no need to over think it as you had a fault code for the clutch switch so cruise won't work till thats fixed anyway :y

Hate cruise. Never use it.

Me too,not a fan,I only use it on motorway roadwork sections :y

scooters currently being trialled at the olympic park in London :y

That is interesting . I always thought the uk position on powered vehicles was they had to be insured and mot’d or road legal. That immediately precluded them from use on pavements. The obvious exception being lower powered mobility “ scooters”

Wasnt there a craze for two wheel scooters powered by a small two stroke motor back in the late 80s or early 90s.? They became obsolete overnight with legislation

The Olympic park is classed as private land hence why the trial is there :y
