    Default Vectra will not start 2 clicking sounds......

    Car was working fine wednesday no starting problems but this moring no starting just 2 clicking sounds and nothing else.
    could it be the starter motor ?
    I have put up the sound on you tube @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJtdGt3jE2A

    Any help would be great as can't get to work before i start ringing garages and if it is the starter how easy to change car is a 1.9cdti 16v 2004.
    Thanks.

    havent heard the you tube noise but if it just clicks when you turn the key its usually either the battery or starter

    can you try and jump start it from someone elses car and then check the voltage across the battery

    I assume you can get into the car..can you not push it outa the garage to jump start it?

    what about using a multimeter to check battery charge...

    Sounds like it's the starter motor - that clicking noise is usually the relay which connects the battery direct to the motor itself. If the relay is going but nothing's happening, then the starter's knackered...

    How easy to replace starter looks like 3 bolts and power supply, not cheap at over £200 from euro parts.

    I would usually say its the battery just going by experience BUT after hearing the video it sounds like the starter. Get a friend to tap the starter with a hammer whilst you are trying to turn it over.
