Started collecting bits ready for next service now that it thinks it is nearly due.

Should really wash it at some point too :-[

Exactly  :y

That's to say the codes suggest imminent gearbox death.

The actual cause is a failing cam sensor.  ;)

Nonsense.

Replace the Cam Sensor with a genuine one from a Vauxhall Dealer you genuinely have to walk into.

And report back.

On that engine, those codes have absolutely nothing to do with the gearbox or its ecu.  ;)

If you've been digging around the display plug, you may have nicked it. IIRC the sensor receives its signal from the display/BC.

Itís a Brown wire with a Yellow trace. The brown wire from the plug goes to ground... I would start there ;)

We're talking about someone who has tried to hide 10,000 people under a bridge and banned drones from over flying the site so that no one can see them there :-X

I would try a new sensor.

Did you check the return circuit as well?

Also, you may find that the engine needs to be running so that the ecu can see the crank and cam signals in order to cross reference them...

It's quite difficult to fit it upside down ???

Have you checked the wiring?

What are the Pedders HD top mounts, a souped up version?
Basically yes. If you fit lowering springs you'll see that the strut tops sit proud of the body, Pedders top mounts minimise this.

I did the front polys, but not the rear subframe bushes. Didn't think about those tbh. Do they often go?
Yes, most definitely - have a search on here, loads of examples, the Pedders donut bushes are fit and forget and tighten up the back end (oo er).

I also considered the Kilen springs as they are for the LSC aren't they? What's your verdict on those?
I've used Eibach springs on mine but they are -30mm
Not entirely accurate. The Pedders Top mounts are dimensionally identical to the factory Omega ones. (There aren't many common parts between the Omega and the Holden Commodore/Monaro, but the front top mounts are one). The difference is that they are stiffer/stronger and therefore locate the struts more securely. The bearings are identical to the factory ones.

Also of note, they now offer rear shock upper mountings and outer bushes for the trailing arms...

He was a serial inventor, so was bound to come up with a few turkeys, the C5 being one.  ;D
Possibly the first 'self charging' hybrid  :D

V6 reference voltage is 5V.

Suspect the 2.0 will be similar.

What is the resistance doing and does it change as the engine cranks?

26
That included Pedders HD top mounts and rear subframe bushes, front polys, Sachs shocks and Kilen springs.

Thinking about it, tyres were probably not included :-\

I paid about that for my last Omega which clearly needed nnew wishbones just to be driveable.

£800 in parts and tyres later and the entire suspension was rebuilt with the exception of the trailing arm bushes. So, unsurprisingly, it drove like a new car afterwards...

29
Not uncommon to see cars with one back wheel bouncing along the road because that shock has failed...

Which is, in itself, a worry :-\

Living in Yorkshire it's easy not to give a flying fox shit about the M25 ;D
