    Thumbs Down Astra Mk5 1.7 CDTi Wont turn over

    Hi,

    Can anyone help with this problem?
    I started my car yesterday after using it all day and it started momentarily and then cut out.

    When I tried to start it, nothing happens and no warning lights show up on the dashboard not even the standard battery or handbrake.

    The radio, central locking, electric windows, headlights etc all seem to work ok.

    I have tried plugging my battery in to charge, that seems to have no effect.

    I am thinking it may be a fuse problem?

    it may be the battery mate,

    It happened to me one day, the car would not turn over, lights on the dash wouldnt light or anything.

    but the central locking and windows worked, for a little while then those stopped working. I changed the battery and everything was fine ever since
