My astra1.4lsi (mpi) is messing me around, i need to jump start it to get it going at the mo, the battery is nearly new and the alternator is working fine, i think something elctrical is not bonding etc, is there anything on these engines that is known for this? a capacitor or resistor perhaps? any ideas or feedback would be great as im starting to get annoyed with it.
If there is no power in the battery when you try and use the starter then the alternator isn't charging the battery. When you turn the key does the starter try to operate. If your headlights and everything work then it could be a knackered starter motor.
