    Default car wont start on a morning..

    ive got the 2.2l 16 valve engine in my vectra.

    on a morning the car turns over, fires up and then conks out. and when i try to re-start it the relay under the dash clicks, but it wont turn over. the spanner light is displayed on the dash.

    after around 5 minuits of trying to start the car it starts working again, starts as normal all day until the next morning.

    if anyone can advise me or if youve had a simalar problem id very much like to hear your views, and how much it cost/ how it was fixed.

    many thanks in advance!

    its an immobiliser problem,

    p1613 immobiliser no or wrong signal

    p1614 wrong security code entered


    Apparently this is also part of the airbag system aswell, so its 395 + vat for the parts, 48 + vat for the diagnostics and one hours labour at 55 quid + vat for fitting the immobiliser. Im told thats the least i can expect to pay. ouch.

    i havent had the work done yet, the problem is intermittent, its real irritating and Im very concerned that my airbags probably wont work.
