Customer Question
Hi. My Vauxhall meriva...

Hi. My Vauxhall meriva won't restart. It cut out when I suddenly had to stop. It starts if I jump start it

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

The lights work fine. The car was working fine up until I had to suddenly stop

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Vauxhall?

Meriva 2004 only done 39000 it's a 1.6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything yet as haven't a clue what it could be just yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think I've told u just about all there is to know
