Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Hi I have just changed the alternator in my vectra 1.9 cdti 2004. I did this because I was advised by the AA. The problem was the engine wasnt turning when I turned the key. Every now and then it would start after 20 go's but its got worse hence why hacd to call aa. His diagnosis was that the alternator had gone so without charge to the battery it was reading the chip in the key. I replaced this buy alas the same thing is happening. I have noticed when it dosent turn over the engine light does not light up but when it does start the light comes on. Any ideas???

A lot of Chrysler products have the voltage regulator in the computer. I would check the charging system wiring first for poor connections and if nothing else is found there is nothing else for you to do but change it.

you have to clear all the codes first, your vehicle stored fault even when the battery was replaced it created trouble codes. have it reseted and see if it comes back on.

SOURCE: car alarm keeps going off when car is left

You may need to have it checked...what may have happened is when the vehicle was jumped started, that a surge was sent through the system. This often happens to the new vehicles since they are sentive to any types of voltage surges. This surge can knock out electronics and cause some ugly things like this to plague you.

I have just changed the alternator on my 2008 vectra 1.9 cdti now my engine is very loud but it is not loosing any power and it was really quiet prior to the work done on it.


Take it back to the people that changed your alternator, and have them tighten the exhaust manifold they removed to get to the alternator.

What is fault code po052


p0052 , vauxhall. no year???????????????,
my guess, no vaux, here. in usa.
is bad oxygen sensor heater (10x burned off wires)
is this a v6?
Bank2, sensor 1, heater.
a real FSM tells you the exact meaning per engine, not much else will.

or B2S1 we call it.
bank 2 is that bank that is on the #1 cylinder side.
here ill google this (me dumb using google lies)lol
3rd hit.
http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/showthread.php/571072-List-of-Fault-codes-and-how-to-check-for-them

diesel.
a Fiat GM engine.
The most common JTD engine is the 1.9 L (1,910 cc, 82 mm bore, 90.4 mm stroke) straight-4 found on various brands and models.

must be Vectra -C (gen)
The four-cylinder diesel engine was replaced in 2004 by a Fiat-designed 1.9 litre Ecotec CDTI engine capable of producing 89 kW (119 hp) in 8v form and 110 kW (148 hp) in 16v form.[12]

OK its and I-4
so why pray tell, does and I-4 have a bank 2 (its no V6)
my wild guess, is like my JEEP I6, it has a split exhaust manfold
and 4 oxy senstors.
so on mine, B2S1 is the top, rear sensor,
B2S2 , S2 is always behind the CAT.

these odd facts, are why and FSM always wins
sorry i dont have one to prove, this. (split deal)
good luck.

Diesel filter location vectra v6 cdti


It is an internal / insert paper filter, follow the fuel lines to the housing.

Special tools required to remove & refit, the new filter will damage if touched by fingers!!
