    Angry Something drained the battery on my Signum

    The car sat overnight and now it won't even turn over. At first I thought it was the starter motor as the car was fully functioning yesterday. All I get now is clicks and the lights on the dash are dying.
    Just before an Opel meeting too...and Germany on Monday


    EDIT: forgot to add...had the alternator rebuilt about 5 months ago.

    Feel the end of the alternator pulley! if its hot its shot!, if not recharge the batt, let it stand for a while after then recheck the pulley, when mine went the alternator pulley went RED hot.

    Started the car up using jump leads. Battery was totally flat. Had to run the "donor" car for a couple of minutes before my engine turned over. Now there is a quiet buzzing noise coming from behind the steering wheel.
