Reading isn't a million miles away if that's the closest. Would be worth the drive once I've got all the mods installed and it's just a case of having them turned on. Got a rain/light sensor to install and need to check I've got a clutch switch as I've installed the cruise stalk.

What's the benefit of updating software?
Correcting bugs and issues that were in previous engine software.
GM seemed to do a lot of updates on these. For example the Petrol Z18XER is currently on V248 software.

Thanks pal. If it comes to it I'll just have to make the trip and get it all switch on at the same time.

So far its auto lights/wipers (just need to wire in the sensor which I think wires into the interior light and the rec?), cruise control (just need to check it has a clutch switch fitted) and front fogs (trying to get hold of an original front fog loom as I could find any pre installed wiring for fogs anywhere despite everything I read saying that all models had the wiring fitted) that need switching on.

Can anti-hijack be turned on? And did any H's have the function that turns the lights on/off when you unlock the car with the fob?

What vehicle have you got bud? When it comes to anti hi jack Tech2 can not do this as it is disabled in the module. A genuine opcom can do this you can buy cheap clone ones of eBay but I would not recommend them as they are *****. You can wire dogs in to the UEC it’s a bit of a fad but it can be done.

It's a 08 astra H van 1.7 cdti. Yeah I read something about gm disabling the anti hijack after problems with the locks due to the amount of locking/unlocking.

Wiring them in at the uec do they still work off of the headlight switch? I replaced mine with one with the auto/ front fog function so ideally I'd like to run it off of that.

Thanks, I'll give them a look.

Yeah sorry I meant I bought the auto one for the auto lights n wipers as well as the fog switch. Mines a sportive but it didn't have fogs as standard. Where do the fogs usually wire in?

There’s a how to on here some where mate have a look at the sticky’s I’ll try and find it for you though as far as I can remember you just buy the dogs surrounds and then wire them into the UEC then program then with tech2 I did it years ago on a sportive and worked of the switch a treat.

Thanks for the link. Yeah that looks like it's installing its own relay. I've been on to a few breakers trying to get hold of a loom. Hopefully that wires into the uec and the wiring to the switch is already in place 🤞 and it's just a case of turning them on. It's bound to be more complicated than that but we'll see.
