    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : CDTi 150

    Year : 55

    Default Battery Failing Maybe

    Recently had the Battery checked whilst in for my service by local Vauxhall Dealer, it passed the checks and issued me with the print out.

    Heres the situation -

    I don't use the car for 24 hours, when I then start the car it seems to take a while to start whilst all the lights on the dash disappear or dim to very low.

    Although the battery was tested recently and passed could there still be an issue with the initial cranking amps of the battery.




    Thanks in advance.
