    Default Vectra battery light occasionally coming on

    hi my father has a 2008 vectra 1.9 cdti 150. Last week he started the car and the battery light stayed on and did not go out until he turned car off and on again. He did not pass any remarks on it until same happened today so we are just wondering now does anyone how what problem might be, Thanks

    I think recalls are a grey area. When i bought my Siggy i phoned a few stealers to ask if it had any recalls or had had any done, Handbrake, SCV's blah blah. None of them had a clue. However some people seem to get a random letter in the post telling them to take their cars in. Wierd

    P.S. My alternator went shortly after batt light kept coming on

    Before you jump into that, try changing the drive belt itself. I was having issues with my battery light coming on upon start, and going out when the engine was restarted. I recently changed my inlet manifold and cambelt and changed the drive belt at the same time - hasn't come on since...
