    Default 1.8 Petrol wont start now and again.

    Morning

    got an annoying starting problem on my 1.8 (52) petrol Vectra.

    1st Time
    When i turn ignition on i get all the normal lights when i go to start it i just get a clicking from the glove box. I bumped started it fine.

    2nd Time
    Same as before but this time would not bump start. had car with the spanner. Left it for 5mins and it then started fine on the key.

    All other times runs fine.


    Any Ideas before i take it into dealers.

    Cheers

    If the spanner light is on, there will be a fault code stored. I've heard of the "pedal test" to read faults without a fault code reader. I'm not sure how to do this, but sure someone with more knowledge will be along soon!

    Have done the fault code pedal thing, came up with the following.
    1482
    2103
    1613
    2108
    2129
    1565

    They all seam to relate to not very important bits, i.e Antenna and seats.
