- If you click on the 9-3 CAN, you'll only find the 1.9L Diesel engine. So, what I did was find an '09 Opel Vectra and click on the Z 20 NET engine under "Engines", you have access to all sorts of awesome and relevant memory blocks for the 9-3 2.0. (like, 30+ fields...all good stuff). For you 2.8L folks, there's a few 2.8L Engine options listed...not sure if they offered the 2.8L Turbo in any Opels in '08, though.
- My OpCom software died after a few minutes and came up blank every time I tried to access a module, but once I closed and restarted it, I could typically access most of the systems on the car and see the relevant memory blocks.
- If you click "Program", it asks you for a security key. Have no clue what this is, but if you can figure it out, apparently you might be able to marry your own keys to your car.
- At one point, my SID beeped and said "TRACTION CONTROL FAILURE. SEEK SERVICE." That scared me, so I turned off the car, unplugged the OPCOM, restarted the car, and everything was fine.
In summary, the OPCOM on the 9-3 does a whole lot more than the 9-5 and appears as if it could be really handy as a diagnostics tool. It might be a bit rough around the edges, but it seems to be worth it. However, it's no Tech II. The Traction Control thing still freaks me out, though.
Hope this is helpful - anyone have any other experiences with OPCOM and their 9-3s?
