    sounds like the alternator, can you take batt off and charge overnight?, if its ok in the morning you could drop into a garage some will check the battery + alternator for free.

    also my vin no. is 48074731 do you think vx will pick up th bill

    OK update FYI on the recall I have the official Vx document in front of me.. Its to do with it NOT charging the battery due to a blown diode.

    Scope: Astra H, Vectra-C, Signum MY 2004-2005

    Model - Plant - From - To

    Vectra C/Signum - Russelsheim 41080136 - 51000100
    Vectra C - Ellesmere Port 48066725 - 48110149


    Only vehicles equipped with a Denso Alternator (105A/120A/130A) and 1.9Diesel engine listed in the VIN info have to be reworked.

    All vehicles reworked have to be cleary marked by a blue paint dot on the coolant expansion tank

    Release Date - 10 Nov 2006

    Sounds like it could be the alternator and or battery or drive belts or pulleys,

    Get a garage to check it out,

    you can bring it to mine if you like, no charge for diagnostics.
