    Here's a FAQ - is there a way to check ECU error codes by using the engine check light like you can with earlier models - i.e. VS, VT etc?
    I have a Bluetooth dongle thing which I have used with my phone before though a mate has it and I need to check the code now.
    Thanks!

    I have not read anything during my online searches about reading codes like the old times on these later models.
    e.g. if it slow blinks and fast blinks a number of times?

    Thanks for your reply. I ended up getting my ELM327 and using my phone to see what the fault was. After I replaced the faulty oil pressure sensor, I again used the phone to reset the errors. All good now!

    2007 VE commodore
    Hey so I was just wondering the best option for my 2007 VE Commodore... Someone tried breaking into it tonight and now the alarm keeps going off randomly, but I also tried shutting my back passenger door and the light on the dash for door open is still on anyone know how I can fix it so the alarm won't keep going off?

    MY12.5 VE SS-V Z Series Sportswagon
    I'm having trouble finding a guide and images on the best and easiest way to remove the glovebox in order to get to the 'supposed' 16pin Dealer Options connector behind the glovebox.

    Is anyone able to assist with a guide and images on removal of the glovebox?

    I have a MY12 SSV Z Sportswagon.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try this great link, clear pictures and text on removing glovebox, bluetooth and stereo in a VE. Took a bit of finding but worth sharing!

    In case the location disappears, here's the word version. If you need a free unzip program to extract it just use http://www.7-zip.org/.
