    alternator and battery?, happened to me in my last veccy. Hope I am wrong though, It cost £740 to fix at the dealers, I got lucky with 90% good will as I got all my work done there, services etc and was only 2 months out of warranty. Good luck

    Definately alternator!!

    This happened to me two days after Christmas, alternator wasn't charging at a high enough voltage.

    No probs once a new one was fitted.

    Not sure about that alternator on Ebay though!! The ad says retail of £495 (or something like that) It only cost £290 for the alternator on my 2.2i fitted from main VX dealer!!

    Good saving though if that is the genuine retail price!!

    Connect jump leads and that should start your car or charge the battery. Once its going get a volt meter and check if its charging. You will have to do a bit of fault finding before you start spending loads of money. You can get your alternator re-conditioned if its found faulty and save a few quid.
