    Look on the back, if you see "Vauxhall", that's a common problem!

    Take the car for a test drive and test EVERYTHING, lights, switches, seats, spare wheel equipment, glove box kit, etc

    possble alternator unable to cope with load demands because of steering pump on 54 plate models and the wiper linkage on the drivers side is weak and tends to go unless it has the updated linkage.
