    My vectra CDTi 150; when the ignition is switch on it remains on when it use to go out.

    After the engine has started it goes out.

    There's an "old" code stored. It'll just need resetting with a hand-held scanner

    as long as it goes out once the engine has fired, no need to worry

    Because the weather has got colder??
    As the car is a Diesel, it might be one, or more, Glow Plugs not working.
    They can be checked using a Multimeter, or the fault will show up on a code reader.

    if it starts to stay on all the time , try looking at the diesel filter unit. could be getting a little wet in there if the rubber has perished.
    my stayed on as the chip box i had on ( blew the ground terminal ) on the fuel unit where it warms the diesel up before starting.
