    Unhappy Not a good start to Vectra ownership!

    Tomorrow is two weeks since I took delivery of my Vectra. Unfortunately it died on me last Saturday.

    It was recovered to the garage I got it from and has spent the last week travelling back and forth between there and their local Vx dealer.

    First diagnosis was a dodgy battery but has since also had a new fuel pump.

    Should be getting it back tomorrow.

    The short time I've actually spent with it has been a joy!

    If it still does it when you get it back, tell them to look at the crank and camshaft sensors, these like to shut the car down, 1st tell tale is it runs lumpy, then won't start.

    I had that trouble with my last Vectra B, took the dealer ages to find the fault, and they only did find it when I told them that my brother, who lives in Oz, had the the same trouble with camshaft sensors on his GM car.
