    Default Vecra c wont start

    Hi, got into my vectra this morning and turned key in ignition, the car had been left on a verge in first gear and i jolted forward then it would not start after this. the radio would keep going on and off,the hazard lights would be flashing and the central locking then started playing up like it hardly had any power. I was then wondering if it was the battery as when i turned the key it clicked but still would not start-the spanner light came on. I managed to get the car onto flat ground and ive left it for a few hours will try it again soon- any ideas bfoe i do? thanks- vectra c 52 reg 1.8

    Try disconnecting the battery lead for an hour if you don't manage to get it going.This should reset any relays/sensors that may have been upset.FELIXX.

    cheers for the advice mate, i was just about to do that with me dad then but decided to have a go at getting it started before i messed with the battery connections-and for some reason it just started working fine! left it ticking over for a while went the petrol station filled it up as was low on fuel and no issues at all- power back everything working???? not complaining but wonder what that was- you reckon its worth disconnecting still or u reckon its all been reset?

    "If it's working ok,leave it and see what happens tomorrow.If it performs again then try disconnecting the battery,however it was probably just one of those things that happen with cars,if you know what I mean.FELIXX.
