What to do when a “X” and Contact Dealer appears?

So you are wondering what happens when the big “X” and “contact dealer” comes up on the dash screen? Well something could be a little serious and could be a bit of an issue. The best thing to do is to pull over at the soonest and safest point, turn the engine off and just wait a few minutes. After waiting, turn over (start the car) the engine and see what happens, if the error comes back then you need to get it to a Holden Dealer or your local favourite Mechanic to get the computer and car looked at via an OBD2 Scan Tool or similar device.

Often what will happen is similar to the “Check Engine” message situation, which can be found here.

You need to find out what is going as soon as possible (ASAP!) because you could have a serious vehicle issue. However, in saying that sometimes these issues like the “Contact Dealer” and “Check Engine” messages could be something serious or it could be something that is minimal which is a quick and easy fix. Sometimes these things don’t cost a lot of money or they can cost big dollars!

Finally and overall you need to get to a Holden Dealer or your local favourite Mechanic to get the computer and car looked at via an OBD2 Scan Tool or similar device.
