    Default Starting problems

    Have had this a few months now,Vectra can start first time for weeks then all of a sudden when ignition is turned i get the clicks turn again the same third time it turns slowly then forth time it struggles and starts the steering for a split second when i pull away is like locked and also on the display screen it says either rear indicator not working or another time front indicator not working then message goes and all is ok after thirty seconds yet indicators are fine also when trying to start the lights try to come on dimly even though there switched off.this happens for about three starts in a row then everythings fine for a fortnight.Scared to take to the garage incase it starts every time.Any help or ideas welcome ,thanks.Also tried doing the pedal code and got 0615.

    Have you checked out all of the battery terminals, including where the earth lead is attached to the body? In fact have you had the battery checked? Worth an initial try as I've had similar problems due to bad connections
    Welcome BTW!

    check battery voltage at rest ,then with engine running on low rev's,you should have 14-14.5 volts with engine running,sound's like your alternator may be faulty,
    steering is electric over hydraulic.
    fault code P0615 is starter relay cercuit
