    Default ABS Lights and Traction control lights

    Hi all!

    Looking for a bit of help if possible, I have a Vectra 1.9 CDTI 06 120 bhp.
    While driving yesterday the ABS light and Traction control lights came on, the car still drove fine, but when I tried my wipers whiched wiped very slowly and also electric windows etc. all did same.

    I made it home, switched off the engine and tried to restart it and just got the clicking noise. Now i'm wondering if it is the alternator or battery but if it was the alternator I believe there is a warning light for this??

    I'm gonna get my multimeter out and check the voltage but any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanx!

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 26000

    Default

    When my alternator went I had no warning light or anything, the car just cut out and then wouldn't start again but like you say could be the battery too especially with the cold weather.

    I had a similar problem on my old car that was caused by the battery, it was low power and ABS, traction control, air bag warnings would happen all the time. i changed the battery and never had a problem again so it could be worth trying another battery on it.

    Update

    Looks like you were spot on davree. Finally got a chance to look at the car today with the multi meter. Battery had 11 volts in it and after a jump start would not charge. Removed the 6 screws out the battery to find one with bubbles in it. I topped that one up, jump started again and battery is now charging and there is no lights coming on the dash too.

    So a new battery for me once this weather gets a bit better and I can go and pick one up.

    Thanx !!

    Hi all,

    this has just happened to me the car's revs were slightly high this morning
    thought nothing of it battery light came on but after restart whent off again,just drove the car again after having new tyres fitted , started to park up then all hell broke loose, battery light came on power steering light came on service light came on........does all this point to the battery
    if it does then it would make sense as the car hardly moved for 2 weeks when we had all the cold weather.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
