    Default Battery light

    Battery light came on yesterday, traced to alternator not charging. Is this a common fault on 1.9 CDTI 150 and does anyone know where to get a cheap alternator? I have been told by local dealer that my car is not covered by recall relating to this. Very disappointed as car is less than 2 month out of warranty

    There was a recall on alternators on the 1.9's. Give the dealers a ring to confirm that yours could be covered.

    Also cars are only covered for 3 years for a reason, thats when parts start going bad!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    As I thought no goodwill from Vauxhall as car was stranded in my garage and did not want to pay for recovery to dealers to be told it was going to cost over £400. Got an alternator for £145 and fitted it myself. Now happy and back on the road after 3 days with wife without her car

    My battery light came on yesterday while driving then after 5 miles the ABS light came on and I lost power steering.

    Luckily I was close to the steelers so I drove it there and they still have it now.

    2 weeks left in warranty

    Mine did exactly the same today on the way to work, I just got there before I ran out of electricity! First the battery light on, switched the ignition off and back on again and it went out but came back on. Then the wipers started going slower, abs and traction control lights, then the last to come on was power steering, they aren't fun to drive without that and even less fun to park!

    Recovered by RAC to a local garage, quoted an hours labour (ICME job time) and its still there, maybe I should show them the how to on here.
