    you dont need to buy a tech 2.

    tech 2 is the device they use at the garage, it plugs into the cars computer.

    id say its easier to take it to vaux and get it fitted. butyou could buy the indercator stalk, fit it yourself then take it to vaux to turn the cruise control on via the tech 2.

      oh kk i was looking at the " how to" threads and there was a post there by vxrste (how to fit cruise control)and he gave a very good detailed acount on how to plug it in and use it to install all the features
      and got the impression you could do it your self. If i purchased and fitted the stalk myself how much whould i save on labour costs?

        http://www.etas.com/data/products_Scan_Testers/PP_TECH2.jpg is Tech 2 ....... Indicator stalk should cost around £30 and to get Vauxhall to switch the cruise function on should cost around £30-£60. Why not fit the stalk yourself and take the car back to the dealer and tell them that your cruise control has stopped working (thats what I done with my 1st VXR) when I bought my second VXR I told them that I wanted it done free + mats + 2 free sevices + VX umbrella + full tank.

            you can enable it via a can ****yser tool on a laptop if you know what your doing and can understand HEXDECIMAL.
