    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Bit of a strange probelm

    Ive has this problem since ive had the car so it not new but ive just never remembered to post it up....

    Anyway,if it really cold outside and frosty and i start the car after its been left overnight and dont touch anything after about 20 seconds the engine cuts out and then another 10 seconds later the power steering light comes on.I i then start the car a second time all is fine

    The only thing i can possably think of is due to my airbox mod and some section cut out of the box that theres too much ice cold air getting to the engine when its stone cold and it causes it to cut out?

    Ive had no problems with the power steering whatso ever and ive had the diagnostics hooked up and no fault codes

    Anybody got any ideas?

    it doesnt really bother me as it only does it if i leave it running while i scrape the ice off so if it is a bad connection ill just leave it as its no big deal
