    Default this is what the problems were on my vectra what do u think

    hi all on to here to seek advice about the reason my 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

    well here goes ive had a mobile mechanic out its been on diagnostics
    1 the battery is goosed
    2 starter needs replacing
    3 wiring loom needs tracing to ignition as its shorted


    getting charged 300 notes does this sound right

    also they said the hydolics were goosed 4 the rear brakes and that added an extra 90 quid

    1 the battery is goosed-new battery i'd say £70
    2 starter needs replacing-New starter i say £85
    3 wiring loom needs tracing to ignition as its shorted- this can be as long it takes to fix fault........

    Has the work been carried out? If not how can he fix a fault on the short if he hasn't found it yet........????
