    I do not know how many model variations are affected by these, but I would assume pretty much all the recent models.

    Electric Windows
    Lets start with the most obvious - not really a hidden menu - pressing an holding the open or close buttons on the keyfob opens and closes the front electric windows. On some models, the windows only go up. If they used to go up and down and have now stopped, try holding the drivers window buttons in the up position for about 10 seconds - I believe I read this resets the window sensor (but I am not 100%)

    Personalized Key Menu
    The next menu is not really that hidden, as it is documented in the owners manual - the personalized key menu.

    Now before I list this one for the umpteenth time, I feel I should point out a fact that is oft left out. This menu personalizes car features to the key in the ignition, so if you have 2 remote keys you can set them differently, like turning the speed limit warning on for someone learning to drive.

    With the key in the ignition but the engine off, pull the indicator stalk and the wiper stalk towards you at the same time and hold for 5 sec.
    It should beep then P1 should come up on the dials.
    Push indicator stalk up/down to scroll through- up to P7.
    Use the light stalk up/down to turn on/off
    To save hold both stalks towards you until it goes off again.

    The following is a list of what each of the P numbers stand for :-
    P1. Welcome lights, off/on - headlights, rear light & reg plate lights come on when you unlock car.
    P2. Auto Rear wiper, off/on - rear wiper starts when you have front wipers on and you put it into reverse .
    P3. Touch control for indicators, off/on - 3 flashes instead of constant flashing when you half press indicator up or down.
    P4. Automatic door & tailgate locking, off/on - doors lock when you reach about 10mph.
    P5. Separate driver door unlocking, off/on - one press opens all the doors, boot and fuel flap when switched off.
    P6. Speed limiter warning, off/speed - either switched off or comes on when you go over the selected speed.
    P7. Warning tones volume, 1-5, volume of the the indicator beeps, etc.


    Now we get to the true hidden menu's.

    Dashboard Menu
    Firstly the dashboard clocks menu where the odometer and trip computer are.

    It does not seem to matter if the engine is on or not, but the key needs to be in the ignition.

    There are two ways to access this menu, via the trip reset button on the dashboard or via the OK button on the end of the wiper stalk. It doesn't matter which one you choose, the procedure is the same

    Press the button 4 times in quick succession, but on the 4th press do not release until the display changes (about 1 seconds)

    The options in this menu are, according to this thread on the Corsa D | UK forums, as follows:

    1. date of fabrication
    2. date and version of soft
    3. ?
    4. speedometer and RPM
    5. battery
    6.a) on board lighting
    b) engine temperature
    7. ?
    8. ?
    9. ?
    10. ?
    11. a) fuel left
    b) Fuel level sensor readings??
    12. a)
    b) instant consm
    13. a) number of days from last check
    b) miles from last check
    14. Trip and ODO



    CD30 Menu
    The next menu is hidden in the CD30. Now this one WILL vary depending on the options in your vehicle.

    For me, I only have the 2 line display and no BC button, so this is what works for me

    Turn the radio on.
    Press and hold the settings button until it beeps.
    Press the AM/FM buttons to cycle through the gibberish.



    For those of you with the BC button, use that instead (or possibly as well as). If you have the Graphic Multi Info Display, then you are in for a treat as this is the test menu.

    See this link ( thanks dannyhull ) for more info.

    Fault codes

    The last menu is fault codes. For thi one, place your feet on the accelerator and brake, turn on the igniton (not the engine) and wait for the Engine Management or Service warning light to start flashing, then reead the flashes much like the old paperclip trick... See this thread for more info.

    Chances are you don't have a REC in the boot - check behind the panel in the passenger side of the boot, it will be a small fuse box or full on REC.

    Have a search here for a picture of a REC (rear electrical control) unit. Take off the vent panel on the passenger side of the boot hear the rear lights to see if you have one - I suspect you may not and it will just be a small fuse/wiring board there.

    I know this is an old thread, but in reply to the last post...

    Put the key in the ignition, but don't turn it. This prevents you washing the windscreen and flashing the neighbours *ooerr*

    As to the Zaffy's not doing the window trick, I am a little surprised as my P reg (1996) Vectra and Omega both had this (the Omega only opened though).
