    unless you have the computer to connect to it you won't get very far, there aint alot you can do with it anyway so i wouldn't even bother. its for diagnostics and stuff.

    On the later vectras the mileage can be altered using this port .
    On earlier models the chip had to be removed from the back of the dash and reprogrammed that way .
