my air bag light has come on the dash and says srs air bag fault. would anyone know why?
when changing the oil I went to undo oil filter nut and it snapped what do I do I have a spare but don't know how to get it removed?
This is a very common problem in VZ and VE alloytec engines. I have been changing my VE's filters without any problems. The trick is to let the engine completely cool down and use a sock with long bar. Then use a jerking force to loosen the cap and remove it. I would suggest to use a torque wrench and tighten 25nm or rule of thumb (slight hand tight). Now regarding your broken nut. i can suggest a few things but not sure if this will work.
1) You can try with cat type filter strap
2) You can try with the big plier wrench
3)If the above tools slips (try putting a microfibre cloth on top of the cap and then attach the tool) remember to work with a cool engine.
4)Check this video on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX748g-mwrY
5) if you have a grinder, grind a corner of it slightly so you can fit a philips screw and then slightly hit it with a hammer(anti clock wise)
6) Consult with a mechanic
7) You may have to change the complete housing
Hope this helps

Why won't the CD player eject or receive cds?
Does your Cd player make a noise when you turn it off. Like a winding noise. Our 2005 VZ Lumina has the same problem. I thought it was the aerial going down. Then I looked further into the noise, and found out there is a cd stuck inside so it wont eject or receive..

i thought it would have been the catbacks or exhaust so i got it all changed

please help !!
This maybe this is too simple, but one vz I had did a similar thing and all it was was the small hose that goes up into the underside of the carbie had come off. You need a pair of really long nosed pliers to put it back on, if it's that. Also check all the plug leads,some of mine had a habit of coming loose on some of the plugs. Good luck..
Can I change a vz 2006 engine to a vz 2005 engine HELP PLEASE?
2005 VZ commodore. Dash lights went off this morning, tail lights still ok Speedo reads 60 kph and tacho on 1100 revs even with key out of the ignition.
Anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it? Thanks
High beam lights won't work.but lights are ok. Any ideas?
Hello Lisa im not a qualified mechanic however my guess would be to check the following:
Fuse compartment (located in engine bay?)
High beam solenoid
Last resort but prob unlikely indicator stalk switch?
Just for kicks disconnecting battery for 5 minutes then reconnecting just in case its some silly electronics gremlin that might need a reset?
I would have thought a good mechanic should fix this easily enough.
Let me know how you go good luck!
Had flat battery now no radio. any ideas?
Does vz2004 sedan have ABS braking
Vz ss leaking coolant underneath on lhs can't see any area from where it's coming from, any ideas?
Hi there Lucko
The obvious areas of coolant leakage are the radiator hoses and connections also check the water pump and the hose to the heater controls this can be hard to spot
The radiator is prone to splitting as well and the water will track across the bottom of the mounting and appear on the opposite side to the fault good luck with this
