    Default Noise when Turning Ign Key

    Vectra C Design 2006 1.8 VVT

    Hi bit of weird one really

    Sometimes, (not all the time) when turning the ignition key to engage the starter motor I can her two ratchetey click noises (thatís the best way I can describe it) that seem to come from the key area (I am not turning the key (i dont think!) at this time) - the car starter motor turns, and the car starts and runs fine, and it generally does it when its really cold morning.

    It does not do it all the time ,and can go for weeks before it happens again.

    Can anyone shed any light on what is happening?

    Many Thanks

    Where abouts are these relays located?, as it sounds like its coming from inside the car.

    Does this indicate that a relay is on its way out? and will prevent me from starting the car

    Is it easy to replace said relay?
