    Exclamation please help with baffling problem 2.0 dti vectra

    hi all my bro inlaw has been on to here to seek advice about the reason his car wont start

    its a 04 2.0 dti
    had one previous fault (pulley wheel) which vx fixed under warranty

    when you turn the key it clicks like a clunk(i thought starter motor)
    so i tried to bump the car it dont want to know
    it doesnt even make a noise like a car does when you bump it ie belts and cogs turning
    ive tried it with jump leads still no go

    question
    can the car be bumped with a broken starter

    ive have had a look at the car
    and so far i can tell you this
    he has no warning indicators or spanner lights
    battery works lights/radio etc still works

    he has removed the battery for upto four hours and my conclusion would have been his ecu after removing battery

    i looked at his key fob and opened it and see no small silcon chip in the head as my 02 plate astra does(but after reading these boards i assume the veccy c 2.0 dti 04 plate dont have the chip

    but the radio has still kept its code

    any help would be greatly appreicated my brother inlaw is not in a finacial postion to get vx to sort so all comments advice would be helpful

    thanks all

    i know its not much help but regarding the radio, you can overide the code so it doesnt need entering if the power is disconnected, someone may have already done this hence why its kept the code
