Hi, All. Just picked up my Antara today

In the handbook it states to press the BC button to access the trip computer. My button does not do anything. I have a Diamond model 2wd. is it a fault or is this only on the 4wd models?
Thanks

Unfortunately the 2wd models don't have a trip computer or BC function. I also have a 2wd model. I spoke to my local VX dealer who kindly activated this function for me.

Spoke to my local VX dealer and asked if the BC function can be instated. He wasn't sure if it can be done. Does anyone know the procedure how to do it? Thanks

Hi Chris, I personnally would go to another dealer if feasible. A VX dealer should either be able to carry out the process or find out how to do it through their network not ask a customer to find out !!!
I would not have confidence in them to carry out the process correctly !!Edited by: Off Road Doc

they will need to go into the infotaiment section select bid,gid screen, there will be a drop down menu, select program code index, most are set to 001, change to 002 then program, should work, if the screen number is different from 001 they should just change to next one up , eg 003-004, 005-006 etc

ye it will work, all the screens have a program code , all antara`s have the same software its just a case of activating ,for BC my screen code was set to 001 whichwas BC off, code 002 was BC on, dealer will find what code your screen is set at once they connect it to diagnostics, this will need to be done at vx dealer as it will require tech2 or gm mdi to program it, you wont be able to use op-com on the newer models as its not updated to 2013

Been to local VX dealer again with instructions to set up BC button. There "software wiz" tells me that the new Antaras software can not be edited to enable the BC function.

Its all in there. Mine was set up using the astra J software. Literally took 5 mins to remove a tick or add a tick in a box, cant remember.
