Recently the heater/cooling fan has stopped working. When the rotary selector switch moves through fan speeds position 1 2 &3 nothing happens, however when position 4 is selected the fan operates, also when speed position 1 is selected a relay can be heard operating. Also the cruise control does not appear to be working together with eratic readings from the engine temperature gauge.
The fault seamed to appear after water entered the passenger area because of a blocked cabin filter vent.
I have checked all the fuses to no avail, does anyone have any ideas
Many thanks Wellman
The picture on page 3 of that thread *might* be of some help as well. It shows where the resistor pack is located. Apparently you can get a cheap component (thermal fuse I believe) from Maplin to repair it.
As for the cruise control, the usual fault is a weak clutch pedal return spring. A way to test this is to put your foot under the pedal and lift it slightly. If the CC then works, then that's the problem. If you look in the how2 section over on Vectra-c.com it tells you what the part number is and how to replace it.
ps, you'll need to register an account on vectra-c.com to view some of the sub forums.
Many thanks for your help. I have obtained a new resistor pack from local VX which has done the job. Also have checked the clutch pedal which is not returning to the top of its position so will obtain a new spring.
Once again many thanks.
Vauxhall has announced that its new city car will be called the Viva, reviving a much-loved badge. We look at ten classic car comebacks and wonder if the fans got what they wanted, or if they’d have been better off leaving the badge in the bottom drawer.
