Oh yeah, and the time I took my Cavalier into the Vauxhall main dealer and got charged 200 for diagnosis which didn't find anything wrong.

Turned out all it needed was a new rear exhaust, getting this fixed the performance problem it had. The main dealer couldn't figure this out.

(It was a fast fit place which figured out the exhaust was the problem, and once it was on it drove like a new car. Faster and much quieter, even though the main dealer said the exhaust sounded as it should. They were useless.)

Well, they probably did figure it out, but they are all fucking cunts and use any excuse to rip you off at every possible opportunity.

Did you ask him if there were any codes present? Still not seen any mention of it actually being scanned yet.

The symptoms are similar to a dodgy battery but you'd have to be really unlucky to get a dodgy second one. I suppose as a last resort to prove, you could leave it charging overnight and see if it starts immediately.

A short across the contacts would cause a fuse to blow

A multimeter would prove that in 10 seconds

Surely those 2 things are contradictory. If you can start it without depressing the clutch, how could the clutch switch cause that fault.

HE SOUNDS LIKE A MUPPET

ah yeah. Could be starter then I suppose. But all these things can be tested, like with the starter, he needs to test whether it's actually getting power when you turn on the engine. If it is and the car doesn't start, then it likely is the starter. If not, they could just trace back the circuit until they find the problem.

It could be an auto electrics place is better than a bog standard mechanic.

when it happens, nothing gets any power, it's dead as a doornail, even the hazard lights don't come on, central locking won't respond etc

haven't tested with multimeter, but always wanted one, could be good excuse

where do I poke it to test then?
