    when you say jump starts fine ..do you mean it will push start fine .this could be the starter motor faulty ....if it will jump start useing another battery it sounds like your battery might be flat or your altonator isnt chargeing

    sorry for the confusion nothing happens when i turn the key no noise no glitch nothing not even the tick i had the wires checked out theres power going to the connections on the starter had the jump leads put on with another diesel car still the same but when i roll it and jump it in gear starts fine no warning signs nothing may be the starter solenoid is faulty but cars just come to its 2nd birthday still underwarranty but being a cabbi its no good rolling the car evertime i get a job! lol

    Definately a starter motor fault. Sounds like the solenoids gone however I don't know what the fuse/relay situation is with the Vectra. I'd check them first Can't imagine the connections on the starter have come loose..
