Re: Tyre pressure monitor system

Cheers for the detailed response, appreciate it. The tyre pressure does show a reading for the replaced tyre. Currently at 34psi. I just get the warning light and an email from OnStar each time I start the car. And the tyres were not rotated when you did this ? If not, the only suggestion i have is...

Re: Tyre pressure monitor system

Hi all, I’ve just had a tyre replaced after a blowout but the warning light is still on despite the pressure being fine. I just took the wheel rather than the car to the tyre shop. Do I now need to do something else to get this warning light to go? Car has been driven only a couple miles since. In ...

Re: Where do you put your phone? (for android auto/carplay connection)

I bought a very short cable with a 90 degree angled USB C connector and i use that inside the armrest. But as it is a pain to connect every time, i usually only connect it when i am going on longer trips and/or need navigation. Would have REALLY liked if they had updated the radio software on the R4...

Re: Changes in Astra 2020

I prefer the mechanical changes in model years so as usual VX has just had its 1st poor review in what car this month. It's the 1.5 3 cyl diesel this time , rated as noisy , gruff etc and finished last behind skoda scala and Ford Focus. I just hope the petrol does better. Did they discontinue the 4...

Re: Changes in Astra 2020

I saw some images about it, and the first (maybe the only) changes in the inside are, tachimeter, slots in tunnel in place of the double cup holder, a bigger place in place of the powerbar and the interface of multimedia system. The first 3 should be my next changes, with many many doubts for the c...

Re: Electrical fault??

That is actually quite normal for a filament. I remember back in the day when all bulbs were filament ones. Especially if the filament was warm and you bumped the bulb or lamp with some force, it would go very bright for a moment before burning out. I guess what happened was that you stretched the f...
