  Need usb connection or din 1 on Astra J Elite
Posted by: benawhile - 2:nd-Sep-2018, 21:20:16 - Forum: ICE - Replies (6)

I am replacing my old Astra G with an Astra J Mk 6 , I am selecting from the local VX dealer, currently I am looking at reg DG15 JWO, which is an Elite spec.

I replaced the ICE system in the old Astra G with a single Din Kenwood KDC 3054U Radio/CD player with a USB socket.
It is the USB facility which I use the most for playing my music from a memory stick, but I understand from the sales dept that the Astra J does not have a USB socket incorporated in the entertainment centre.

If sales are correct, can anyone advise the simplest way to convert the new car so it will have a USB socket? I was hoping that I could obtain a kit to convert the 2 din down to 1 din. I don't mind if I can't use the Kenwood, I just want usb connection.
Dynamic Sounds limited or Connects2 supply conversion kits from din 2 to din 1 but I can't ascertain whether they have exactly what I need for my model.

  Cracked tyre valve with TPMS
Posted by: Craig2305 - 2:nd-Sep-2018, 14:21:12 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (4)

Hi all

I went to put air in my tyres today and noticed that the metal valve is cracked on one of my wheels and therefore I am unable to put air in. Is this a cheap tyre shop job or will the whole sensor need replacing?

Thanks very much Smile

  Continuuous fan operation
Posted by: philg25 - 1:st-Sep-2018, 11:50:17 - Forum: Electrical - Replies (1)

Astra 1.6 J 2013 78000 miles

Warning light came on yesterday regarding engine overheating and guage hit maximum. Called AA and they diagnosed a faulty coolant temperature sensor. Got above part and fitted which sorted the high temperature light but now the fan runs continuously on high. Had this before when my thermostat failed which I replaced about 10000 mile ago. Has another sensor failed and if so which one? Thanks for any help.

Cheers Phil

  Astra J 1.7 CDTI Tech-Line rear light cluster issue
Posted by: AstraCDTI - 28:th-Aug-2018, 22:27:02 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (1)

Hi all,

I hope someone can assist. Is there anyway to completely open up the rear clusters. 

I have an odd issue where my brake light clear section has snapped in both the rear clusters and rattles around within the larger cluster. I have removed both but after removing the group bulbs out the  rear I cannot find how to disassemble the rest. It looks like anti tamper screws have been used.

Not so much an issue but it keeps on knocking on the brake bulbs and causes intermittent errors when starting the car suggesting rear brakes are at fault. I then have to remove the cluster and secure the bulb back in for a period of time until it happens again. 

Any suggestions on this or is it new cluster time on both sides?
