    Default Engine Electronics light comes on

    I have recently just purchased a 1.9 CDTi Design vectra 54 from an auction but when starting the engine the Engine Electronics light (car with spanner) comes on for about a minute then goes off. Yesterday is struggled to start and was quite rough, started after 3 attempts. Its only done 60k. I have a friend who works for vauxhall and he said that he would take it in and stick it on the diagnostic computer to see if there is any faults.

    Do you think it is worth doing this?

    Having read about the problem it seems quite common

    Hope fully i havent been sold a **** car

    Sounds like the all too common problem of faulty glow plugs.

    A diagnostic readout will tell you more correctly than a guess though.
