  Navi 950 with touch screen info
Posted by: Rusty2009 - 13:th-Jan-2021, 16:59:56 - Forum: ICE - Replies (1)

The info was originally found via YouTube and You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

But once we saw it You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. & myself got stuck in & started playing.

We can enable touch screen rear camera and DAB+ with a Chevy theme quite nicely.

For this you need a screen with the following part number 22851302

There are 4 extra wires needed for touchscreen as detailed below, The white & blue are shielded with the black being the drain.

Video of touch screen working.

Please note the Android auto / car play is an added feature which is a separate module and not enabled via just adding a touch screen and the programming to enable touch screen.

  Electric windows
Posted by: Refuseman1960 - 9:th-Jan-2021, 12:19:39 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - Replies (1)

Periodically the front windows on my Astra open either halfway, or fully. The car is always locked and windows are fully closed when left. Has anyone else experienced this, or have any suggestions? My local garage have not heard of this before.

Hey everyone, 

I'm quite new to the forum but thought id join you all in posting some progress pictures and details.

I bought my 2013 1.4 Astra GTC Sri in June 2020 (as a first car birthday gift for myself Big grin)

Here she is:


The previous owner had added the black alloys and changed the wing mirrors to have black covers.
(Which if they hadn't I certainly would have done as it makes the car look soooo much better.)

I then went onto change the headlights & DTR light from the stock ones to bright white ones.


All the interior lights were changed to a 'whiter' colour.
Along with the boot light, side indicator lights, number plate light and vanity mirror.

I upgraded from the OEM radio as shown (not my exact one but just for reference):


To this aftermarket unit which had wired & wireless Carplay built-in. (android auto too if that's your thing).

  Car won’t start when cold
Posted by: Needanalias - 2:nd-Jan-2021, 23:24:35 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (8)

Hi, I’m new to the forum, never really had to ask for help as everything’s on here but I have a problem I can’t find an answer to. I have a 2010 2.0D Astra J that won’t start when it’s cold. Initially I thought it was the battery and have replaced that. I then changed the glow relay and plugs and I’m still having trouble when it’s cold. It will start with easy start (I know I shouldn’t use it in a diesel) but after using that it will continue starting all day until the engine gets cold again. I took it to a mechanic before doing the plugs and he said fuel is getting to the engine and he was 100% the plugs needed changing. I did check them with a multimeter and they were fine but replaced them anyway. Any ideas?

  Remap / New Member, Hi!
Posted by: MidlandsGTC - 2:nd-Jan-2021, 22:40:40 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (1)

hi guys,

So I'm a new member to this community here. Actually, I'm a new member to joining a forum about cars in general.

I've got an Astra GTC 1.4 (120) Ltd Edition,
I'm looking at possibly remapping her through Remapkings as suggested by a friend. The site has shown that it would go from 120 to 171, and torque from 200nm to 271 (priced at £234)

I was just wondering a few questions:
- If anyone has any experience remapping the 1.4 GTC, how did it go for you? Did you notice any problems?
- I read somewhere that the 1.4 GTC has an M32 gearbox and the upper limit for torque could be a problem. Now I'm not really savvy enough to know the techs of this so I was wondering if anyone could provide some input on that. Would 271nm be problematic?

- Lastly, bit of an odd question perhaps? Anyone who has the 20" rims from the Limited Edition - have you been able to compare this with smaller rims? Did you notice any difference, good/bad?

Sorry if any of those questions are quite newbie

Hope to speak to some folks soon!

Thanks (:
