Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Car Speakers
« on: 10 October 2008, 13:10:45 »
I have been told by the misses a couple of speakers sound like a crap vibrating noise as if the centres are knackered.

I am eventually going to fit new speakers into the doors as the current ones are not that brilliant imo.

Can someone please tell me what size speakers fit in the front & rear doors and will they need an adapter.

Cheers

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Door Mirrors
« on: 30 March 2007, 15:21:35 »
My dads car seems to have either knackered mirror motors or the switch, basically the mirrors both sides move in and out but will not tilt up or down.

Has anyone else had a similar problem.

I think my first move will be to test with the switch from mine.

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Alarm / Indicators query
« on: 24 January 2007, 12:33:35 »
The other day when I was working on my car 97P Omega when finished I locked my car as you do and all the indicators flashed, my dad at the time who was with me commented that his 94M omega indicators do not flash when the alarm is armed or disarmed.

He has the IR type with the red dot on the ceiling.

Has been mentioned in an older thread but I am still unable to trace the problem.

I have proven the alarm works since.

Could anyone suggest a possible reason why it does it on mine but not my dads.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / MID Display Repairs

Can they be fixed or is it a replacement job

I managed to win one from a scrappy but it was worse than what I have was wondering if there was a knack to fixing them.

Has anyone fixed one before.

I discovered that they do not necessarily need to have the same part number as I tried one with a different part number but with the same Sockets on the back being a yellow and a grey socket.

Now not sure if there is any truth to it but I was told a little while ago that if the indicators flash when you lock and unlock the ECU is configured for Germany which is illegal in this country and would need changing using Tech2.

My car does the above, where as the Black omega I have the indicators dont flash when locking or unlocking.

I personally am not bothered whether they flash or not.

Has anyone ever heard of this before?

Feel free to move if in the wrong place :)

Been looking on USA Ebay and found a Cadillac Catera rear view mirror but its got something different to the UK design it looks to have 3 buttons on it for something called Homelink.

Has anyone seen or heard of this before.

Curious as to what it could be.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / High Level Brake light Fitment woes
« on: 18 September 2006, 14:58:59 »
Following on from my last thread I was thinking of fitting a rear lip spoiler with the brake light incorporated, trouble was I kept missing them on Ebay so went the high level brake light route instead.

Courtesy of Issunaz having met up with him for a few bits for the Black Omega I got my hands on a high level brake light for mine.

Fun begins, I removed the passenger side rear panel which has the grab handle fixed to only to find no connector for the high level brake light.

Can anyone tell me whether the connector should be there for a high level light, my car is a 97P cd spec Omega whether it was an additional I dont know.

Could anyone suggest any where else the connector might be, I was thinking to open the bundle of cables that run up the side of the passenger side under the back seat.

Could this be hidden under my rear parcel shelf (unchecked area of the car so far)

Any advice, suggestions would be much appreciated

As in the above I would eventually like to get my hands on one of these but can they be fitted without doing a bodge.

My car at the moment does not have this and was wondering whether it would have a hidden connector in the boot lining for connectivity.

At a guess a hole would need to be made to run the cable in would this be right.

If its too much trouble to fit one with the brake light I shall have a look for one without.

Has anyone added one of these before.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Leather Seat Heated Seats Issue
« on: 25 August 2006, 13:03:21 »
Basically I still have my doubts as to whether my heated front seats work they are connected up and the light on both buttons come on, seats get warm but not sure if they are on might just be body heat. The only heat felt seems to be when sitting on them. >:(

The replacement seats were tested in its original surroundings before removal and they were working.

The rear seats have there individual relays in place would it be worth moving them around.

The old front seats I knew for a fact worked can anyone tell me where the relays are for the front.

I shall be double checking the joins either tonite or tomorrow.

Possible fuse issue maybe.

Any suggestions as to what could be my problem.

Cheers

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Radio Reception Advice
« on: 13 July 2006, 10:04:31 »
Now I have only just got radio reception back and its not the best would a DAB radio help to improve radio reception only the aerial is built into the rear window.

Have tried the cleaning the inside/outside of the window trick but its still not the best.

My project omega which will be my dads has a DAB radio with the aerial built into the rear window and the reception is well clear.

I am not sure if this will work the same in my car.

What would be the best solution any advice would be most appreciated.

If this is a good idea could anyone recommend any decent DAB radios

Omega General Help / Suspension woes
« on: 19 January 2009, 21:30:02 »
Just lately been getting a swaying feeeling as in a boat when motoring along every bump the car rocks now I'm guessing my shocks are shot at the front or all round maybe.

I have also noticed the front end has dropped slightly whats the chances its just spring related.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as I am thinking to replace the shock all round come the end of the month including the wishbones and anti roll bars.

What I dont get is it passed the MOT with just a failure on the exhaust which was blowing surely the suspension would have been tested.

Omega General Help / Black sealant query
« on: 13 January 2009, 16:29:23 »
I unfortunately missed Vx on saturday to get the genuine stuff and the reserve I had unfotunately had gone solid lol. I had to go to halfords in the end and bought the Loctite equivalent has anyone else on here tried the stuff, any luck it will be just as good as the VX black stuff.

Whats the chances it will leak again following using this stuff, needed something at the time as had the cover off.

Car on a whole runs alot better following the rocker cover reseal and an ICV clean including the breathers.

Next job is the shocks and springs all round.

Omega General Help / Exhaust Manifold Woes
« on: 21 November 2008, 08:20:41 »
I was traveling up a hill with speed humps the other week and had to dodge some idiot coming the opposite way who was speeding forcing me to bounce awkwardly on a speed hump, before asked I was doing around 15mph if that and had to go to the centre of the road as cars were parked to the left of me.

My car now drives like a crap and I discovered yesterday the manifold is ticking when cold >:(

What are the chances of more damage having occurred.

I am going to be removing the manifold tomorrow to get a better look.

More work  :(
