Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks
The car occasionsally when the key is turned Ijust get a "click" and nothing happens. However it does suddenly turn the engine over after a few goes. I have just had a new battery fitted because it was felt that this might be the problem. Car is Vectra 2004 CX04TLF
You have a defective started solenoid on starter, the large battery contacts are eroded from arching and at times they don't make a connection to power up the starter motor and so the starter solenoid will just clicks This problem is common to all Nippon Denso designed type starters used in ALL modern cars and lite trucks.

try lifting the brake pedal with your toes then switching on the cc when driving. sometimes a faulty or loose switch on the brake pedal can cause cc to cut out.

jack front of car up clean around the coil spring where it sits on the shock absober probably do this with your fingers and a screw driver to clean the grit out, then squirt some oil on he bottom of the spring and where it sits on the shock absorber do the same with tho other side.might have to repeat every 3 months especially in winter

Check the large vacuum line coming from your brake booster,In it is a one way valve that stops you from forcing air backwards into the intake.Which is what your problem sounds like.The sudden extra air pushed into the intake severely leans out the motor causing the stumble.Hope this helps?
