    confused Vectra 2.2dti wont start

    Hello!
    Bought Vetra C 2002 2.2DTI few weeks ago. This morning, after few km riding, battery, ABS and TC (ASR) lamps in dashboard began to light. I stopped the engine to check, if the alternator belt is ok - it is, also the batery, and cannot start car anymore. It is only small "click" in some relay under the dashboard at starting and "F" in all riding data lines (range, consumt, speed....) in computer. All other is working well. Is it common or need to get error codes? Thanks!
    Sorry for poor english.

    That sounds like the battery has had it. It will have enough power to supply the electronics but as soon as the starter motor tries to start the engine, the voltage will drop to low. Have you tried to start it with another battery?

    No, i didnt, but the battery "eye" is green (it means - full) and also tested it by special battery tester - its OK. Also the horn is powerfull, central lock works from 30m... Checked all basic problems for any car.

    Checked all fuses - OK. Any ideas? What could :""F" in all riding data lines (range, consumt, speed....) in computer." mean?

    Strange, but at least it's going again! I didn't think that would stop it starting.

    As I was told, Vectra has CAN BUS (2 small wires or smth. like that) througt all ECUs. If there is no contact in one ore one Ecu is out - all system stops. It was 5 min job with OP-COM reading failure. I already ordered one for mysef.
