    Default Alternator?

    Hi, I have a 56 plate Vectra CDTI Exclusive and upon starting it this morning the battery light has come on. Iv also noticed when i rev it a can hear a whistling sound which im thinking is the turbo. Is it likely these 2 faults are related or both seperate ie alternator and turbo

    I also noticed yesterday it took an extra few seconds to turn over.

    Cheers

    Should also note that the abs light is on because there is a cut in the harness wire that has 2 pugs either end by the sensor dont know wether this is linked. And my dials have been moving and making a noise just before i turn the car over like the lights still being on when you open the door its like there is an electrical fault.

    i usualy just test my car with a multimeter for future reference when the car is running with the multimeter set to the correct setting the battery should show 14+ volts that indicates the alternator is charging the battery well
