        Have searched a few Forums Dawn and most are saying it needs to be hooked up to TECH2 or Opcom

              I found these instructions for a Vec 'C' whilst surfing about.....

              you need to press and hold the lower left hand button on the steering wheel until 'system' is displayed on the screen, then with the right hand rotary wheel, you then scroll 'up' i.e turning the wheel towards the windsreen until you see 'clock sync' on display, then scroll once more until you see the time displayed on the screen, then you simply adjust the hours and mins with the up and down buttons until you have the correct time, once you have set the correct time, you then scroll 'down' with the rotary wheel to 'clock sync on' and hey presto you have the correct time without refitting your orignal factory fitted unit ! i have a double din pioneer unit fitted with, steering wheel controls and it works a treat p.s my sri is a 57 plate, full canbus, dont know if this would work on a half canbus system

                  If the trick from the Vectra C doesn't work, then try it with Opcom first (me and Scott have Opcom if you need help), as Vauxhall charge £65 to plug your car into a Tech 2
