      These are surprisingly hard to find now. When my Monza one packed up I had real trouble finding a replacement - they used to be all over Ebay but it took me a couple of months to get one.

      If you have one but the delay has packed up it may just be a dry joint on the circuit board or contacts, if you don't have one at all then Mk2 Cav, Mk1 facelift Carlton, Mk1 facelift Senator and Monza are all the same. Later ones from Mk3 Astras and Mk3 Cav do fit but I'm not sure if they have the delay board built-in, certainly I've not seen one. Apparently Vectra, Omega and Mk4 Astra also fit but I've never looked, if it helps, but again I don't think they have the delay (it was a seperate multi-timer).

        Hi, You know what i had one hanging up in the garage since 2003 and never thought I?d need it again so sold it on eBay last year for a fiver i think it was, and now i needed it, just typical a,
        It will be with me next so see if the delay works ok in not will try what you said
        Oh ok i know a lot of them are similar but never really checked the types, hopefully this one will work ok.

        ​​​​​​​Cheers

          Ok had one delivered yesterday and all seems ok, not tested the delay yet so hopefully its ok, just need a bit of help with the wiring please, I have circled the terminals and shown what I have in the car,
          Both red and black wires are live with the black wire showing slightly less voltage and the earth is not shown be is there, the 2 in photo 5 run to the driver?s door double door switch
          Any help would be appreciated
          Cheers

            OK, that's the later-spec light with four connections;

            Terminal 30 - Permanent live (red)
            Terminal 31 - Permanent ground (brown)
            Terminal 15 - Ignition live (black)
            Terminal TK - Door switches (grey)

            If the car is an early build (B/C reg) it won't have had the ignition live originally but all should have the ground/earth. If it has gone missing you'll need to run a new one. If it's wired up correctly it should work as follows;

            Ignition off - delay when closing door, map lights won't work.
            Ignition on - no delay when closing door, map lights will work.

            ​​​​​​​Hope that helps!
