  2. TRADE OF 19" AMPERA WHEELS

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Hey guys. After 5 years of ownership its time to sell my trusted Ampera. I have an offer for anyone of you straight swap my 19" wheels and tyres for a standard set. Yours must be in good condition and tyres must have at least 5mm of tread. The catch is that mine will need re-furbishing. They...

    pics added. Looks like I was lucky as absolutely no sign of the paint de-laquer on any of the wheels. 2 of the wheels are mint condition (pics 1 and 2) - the other 2 have very minor marks on them from slight curb contact but (pics 3 and 4) but could be easily touched in and polished back if desired.

    Hi Donald, Correct - the TPMS sensors have been re-used for the 19" wheels I now have - soon also to be replaced as the lacquer on them has completely failed!! Not sure what you mean by the powder coat rot but the wheels have been stored in my garage and are as good as the day I took them off...

    Very true Donald. I have to say though I have had an issue every time I have visited which involved me elevating the issue!! Before this issue was a problem with the rear brake calliper sticking. They wanted to replace the discs and pads at my expense which I get.......they are consumables...

    Well after a little over two weeks and the threat of Trading standards and the power of social media the Ampera alarm finally is fixed. Turned out to be the TPMS control module that was faulty as its also linked to the alarm BUS system. ended up as a complete battle which was a complete stress...

    Read my thread on Alarm fault........ Have had nothing but problems with Lookers Birmingham and my Lifetime Warranty. if I had a choice I would not touch them with a barge pole. They have had my car for two weeks now and refusing to cover the TPMS control module under warranty which they say...
  9. Alarm going off every 10 mins!!

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Donald, Thanks for the advice. I do find it rather unbelievable that despite the Power sounder being quite obviously an electronic control unit that Vauxhall are refusing to replace it under warranty - this does then beg the question is the warranty really worth having!!! The lasts is that the...
  10. Alarm going off every 10 mins!!

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    So Lookers Vauxhall in Birmingham have got back and as suggested belive it to be the power sounder. Despite having the 1st owner lifetime warranty they say its not covered!!! Frankly I'm disgusted and despite me reffering them to their own warranty blurb that electronic control units are...
  11. Alarm going off every 10 mins!!

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Evening chaps, Some great advice, many thanks. The strange part is that when the alarm is going off the hazard lights do not flash. There is a power sounder so that could be another possibility, also locking the car on the fob seems to make no difference. have had the car sat in my garage too...
  12. Alarm in the night!

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I have this exact fault!!! I did however try disabling the ultrasonic sensors from the button in the roof. Will let Vauxhall know about the sensors......its currently in for diagnostics
  13. Alarm going off every 10 mins!!

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Hi guys, So the latest problem with the Ampera is the alarm goes off after about 10 mins from locking. Just the siren though, there are no flashing indicators and no matter what button is pressed nothing seems to cancel it. Stops on its own after about a minute and then off again. Has been to...

  16. TOOMEY VAUXHALL BRENTWOOD BAD EXPERIENCE

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I can honestly say that my experience with dealerships with both my Vauxhall Ampera (Lookers Bormingham) and my Jaguar XFR (Stratstone Cheltenham) has been shocking........they really do not value existing customers and the level of profesionalism with service staff is a joke!!! Thankfully I...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Hi guys, So my Ampera got stranded at the tyre fitters last weekend with the dreaded "service steering lock fault" after an hour of power downs, power ups wiggling the wheel and pulling and replacing the F2 fuse all was well........called up Vauxhall (Star city Birmingham) and they said they...
