Evening guys,

I'm now really struggling to unlock the BC function. Went to a garage with VAUXCOM with no success, apparently it wouldn't find the CD40 USB unit despite trying several modes as its too new??. Vauxhall have shrugged their shoulders not really sure so I didn't want to pay for the privilege of them just looking and it not working.

The cars a 2014 exclusive with GID display with the 3 tabs at the top and as mentioned a CD40 USB head unit. When I press the BC button I only get tyre pressures but nothing else, I've seen others have BC 1,2 and timer and it looks like I have the space (lines above) for those modes too.

So does anyone know how I can get it unlocked and is there anywhere in the South East?

Thanks in advance

Dan

Sorry for multiple questions but I want to see- Has anybody got an Antara with CD40 (with or without USB) and or BID/ GID combination and does it display BC functions? Is anyone's a 2013/2014 model that's had it done?
Has anybody actually had a GID with any head unit unlocked because a lot of what I'm reading is about BID 3 line display. Just need reassurance it can be done.
Ive taken the plunge and purchased an Opcom so I can have a play myself. If it doesn't work then there will be a cheap unit going soon ish on here.

Sorry I'm none too sure what a CD40/BID/GID is when it's at home. Mine is SE NAV which has full monty :- hands-free, USB, CD, Bluetooth, Sat-Nav and the BC1, BC2, etc etc yada yada ding dong, there's also another page of settings to go through: units, contrast etc etc boring.

Imo you should take it to a proper dealer that knows what they're doing. My local dealership (Eden Newbury) uses a local car electrics/electronics specialist with sufficient experience for their after-market fittings and mods, we've had such work done there: Meriva reverse sensors and HF unit. Quick and faultless

He told me he works all over country if you don't mind waiting till he's in your area, but also he gave me loads of advice and help, may be able to point you in the right direction

I had a similar problem in that only Tyre pressures were displayed. I took this to my local Evans Halshaw and they updated the BC software so now have all I need displayed. It cost me £39!

I have a 2014 (64 Plate) Antara Diamond with added extras (Autodab) and front & rear parking sensors.
