    ShereKhan

    Vauxhall vectra 2002 1.8petrol the control indicator for electronics has been lighting up after the cars run for a short while, hasn't impeded the running of the car.
    Wife dropped kids off and on way home she said every light on dash flashed up, she switched off then restarted, batt. Emission and oil light came back on. She crawled home worried. I looked at it restarted and emission light with electric light showed only with engine running.
    Went out to it next morning car was dead removed and charged battery over two nights, replaced as did so got sparks from connectors tried starting still no action. No electrics whatever no joy upon turning key not even clock showing time, helpful advice anyone

    Re: ShereKhan

    First check would be to go through the fuses and see if you've blown any. Are there any large fuses near the battery? You'd normally expect to see a few sparks when connecting the earth. You definitely put the battery back in the right way round didn't you?

    Electrical problems can be caused by a worn out battery so if you have a multi-meter I'd try checking the voltage on the battery first of all. Anything less than 12v suggests it's probably knackered if you've recently charged it. Does it have a telltale indicator (a little coloured ball should appear in a window). If it's black or the ball is half visible then it's probably time for a new battery.
