    Default my vectra just died, pls help

    Hello everyone, my vectra just died and i wanted to know if anyone out there can help me to find out what it is and how expensive it will be to fix.

    I noticed that the car was idling above 1000 revs, it normally does not do that. Then after about 45 mins it died. The airbag light came on 1st, then the radio started cutting out then the power steering went. I managed to get to a parking space then i turned the engine off and when i tried to start it all there was was a clicking sound and nothing. Got green flag to try and jump it but nothing.
    Any ideas on what it could be and is it bad?

    Cheers
    Ben

    Sounds like the alternator is away, classic signs im afraid. Get it jump started and run a multimeter over the battery terminals, should be between 13.5 and 14.4 volts with the engine running. Might be the battery is goosed too.
