    Default 1.9cdti alternator problem

    Hi lads and lasses, have'nt been on for quite a while so firstly hello again.

    I've stiill got the vectra but today it today it went wrong for the first time. first of all it started ticking over at about 1100 revs instead of the usual 800, then the radio started turning on and off, then it lost the power steering, then the abs lighht came on aswell as the power steering light.

    My initial thoughts was the alternator, can anyone confirm if it's likely to be that.

    Ive got a garage taking a look at it tomorrow, but just thought I would put a post up on here ....

    Any idea how much I should be paying for it to be fixed

    Sounds very much like the alternator. The garage can check to see if it putting out 14.2v at idle speed, if not then it's fubarred! Motor factors sell them for way less than the dealer, i figure around the £150 mark, then it's about and hours labour on top.
