hi mate, the date should come on automatically when you turn the ignition on, as well as other lcd items, and stay on whilst radio is on. was the stereo fitted before you bought the motor or have you fitted it?
Not 100% sure on the Astra's, but as far as I can remember from my radio fitting days....the Date display etc is activated by the "electric aerial / ant out " wire in the ISO (standard radio) plug,
I'd say that if you disconnect this wire & directly hard wired the aerial amplifier itself ( make sure that you cut the wire at the aerial amp though as it will feed back down and turn the date display off ) !
