Pomie I would check the 'power line' to the fuel pump.
I've known of two owners (myself being one) where the wire has corroded
and burned out breaking the connection.

Hugs and all the best to your family,

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Brilliant. I might ,jist might be heading that way soon BUTT not yet hopefully. Thanks for the tip. I think it's a nice weekend so will try then.

Had a real meatloaf moment the other night.

Took the 3 keys (Abit like the 3 bears too and eye wiz Goldilocks :lol:)
First the van , Turned over fair enough but not enough to fire up.
so moved to TIa. She should be fine
Secondly TIa turned over and over but widnae start. Then I heard the suspect whirring from the black box area.
So moved to the Vectra.
Strated nay bother. New battery did the trick AND buying wisely now as it does both van and Vectra and although they say it is recommended for the 166 I woodnae stick a 70Ah battery in 166. 100 Ah or nothing.
So drove the Vectra and goat the diesel sound fray a petrol Transpires its the VVT variators . So glad I never did the belt as they failed after it was scheduled to be done. So now 2 birds . IF only last year I had treaded that in for a Santa Fe and the Van for an all electric Golf. However that boat has sailed.

Returned and jumped the van from the Vectra with my 50 year old jump leads.

So 2 out of 3 aint bad but we need perfection. Driving the TI at night is therapeutic with the red lighting.

I had a quick butchers hook the day,. DOH Yup pure Simpson moment the other night.

The noise I heard, even tho I am deef , was the headlight motor adjusting. Now the battery is flat with trying the day.

Shirley its no just a flat battery. Will try to jump it tomorrow weather permitting or take oot the battery and charge it.


Its just that these 100Ah batteries seem to be getting heavier even although its the same weight.
