  cd400 vs navi600
Posted by: niteram - Yesterday, 21:28:06 - Forum: Electrical - Replies (1)

right then I currently have 2 astra Js
one is a 12 plate (non facelift) 5 door SE with the cd400
other is a 61 plate SRI sport tourer with the Navi600 (with BT and Dab+)

my question regards the audio volume - the CD400 is much louder - does it have an amp or something that the Navi600 doesn't?

and if it does - can I fit one to the Navi600?

any ideas or suggestions??

  Rear lightning cable color question
Posted by: DaanV - 18:th-Aug-2018, 16:28:40 - Forum: Request for information - Replies (5)

Hi all,

I've tried looking for it but didnt find what i was looking for in this forum. 

In short, I'm trying to hook up a rear view camera and to do so I'd like (as posted before in some how-to topics) to hook up my cables to my rear/reverse lights. However, the color coding of my opel astra 1.7 CDTI 2012 is different from what I was able to find on other posts on this forum. The left reverse light box (which contains reverse and brake lights) have a yellow, black and purple/white cable (see attached picture). Can anyone help me which ones i need to connect to my red and black cables that come from the reverse camera?

thanks in advance,

  2.0 CDTI GTC rear springs
Posted by: connorholmes - 18:th-Aug-2018, 00:03:03 - Forum: Request for information - Replies (4)


I have a 2.0 CDTI SRI GTC and today noticed one of my rear springs has broken, so it's time to replace them both. Does anyone know the part number for the rear springs on the GTC, and if they are the same as the 5 doors? I am right in thinking that the SRI springs are shorter than the standard ones, aren't I?

Links to buy the springs would be even better! Just after GM or OEM spec springs, nothing that would lower the car.

  OBD II scanner - what works on the Astra ?
Posted by: Dennis S - 14:th-Aug-2018, 20:36:24 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (6)

I'm looking for a OBD2 scanner to find and delete engine management (or service vehicle soon) codes on my Astra.
I have so far tried the Autophix OM 123. It connected with my car ok, but failed to read a service vehicle soon fault displaying on my dash.
Can anyone recommend something that works for them, please ?

  Cold engine idle
Posted by: Lee - 14:th-Aug-2018, 20:31:05 - Forum: Mechanical - Replies (4)

Hi, I've just bought my first diesel and it happens to be a GTC SRI 2 ltr CDTi. I love it. My only question so far is that when I initially start the engine from cold, it's not a smooth idle and you can feel it through the car with a slight rocking. Is this normal? A common problem? After a few minutes, it idles fine and there seems to be no other issues. I searched for the answer before posting so apologies if the answer is buried here somewhere.

  Front Caliper issues?? - Help please
Posted by: everson38 - 12:th-Aug-2018, 18:31:04 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (2)

Hey guys.

I had by car jacked up in the air with both calipers showing the pistons. When I pressed brakes only the passengers side piston would come out. When I original took calipers off the both retracted fine it's just that it won't come out??

The passenger side brake disc looks worse then the drivers as it is all rusty and not shiney but drivers side looks shiny. as hence why I thought something was wrong.

Anyone have any ideas to issues?

Thanks any help welcome.
