1999 Vauxhall Astra Repair Question
Car wont turnover
I would get the ignition switch checked first.
thanks i will try this now fingers crossed
let me know how you get on.
hiya again sorry to be a pain but how can i tell if it is this problem would there be any phisical signs or would it be better just replacing the switch? many thanks
You will have to check the terminals with a test light, to see if power is flowing through the correct terminals as the key is turned, this would be best left for a mechanic to test, a switch may be expensive and you do not want to get one if it is not the problem, always do the diagnosis first, just throwing parts at it in the hope of a fix can get expensive.
hiya again i justgot in i found the problem the barrel has snapped so i managed to use the screw driver to try and start it manualy only problem now is it tries starting but wont tick over now not sure what i can do now many thanks
Are you getting the switch back into the run position? go fit a new barrel and key, i feel that you are not setting the switch in the run position correctly.
