Hi,

Had two starter motors blow so taken to vauxhall to run a diagnostic. Now on my third which works fine for now.

They have said the wiring harness is the issue and they need to replace it, as well as a working starter motor. They said this is because they cannot fit a vauxhall genuine wiring harness to a non genuine starter motor...is this right or am I being ripped off??

They've quoted me £1373 which is just horrendous. I've had the car 4 months and it's outside used car place's warranty so they won't help.

My belief is that a starter motor has the same connections regardless of the brand so why are vauxhall trying to tell me I need a genuine Vauxhall starter motor in order to have the wiring harness fitted.

Any advice?

Ye
There's lots of information on this board already eg see this thread
Yeah I've looked at everything I can find on here. Just nothing specific to a wiring harness which i believe is different to the starter motor cable.

More importantly I want to see if anyone has been told that vauxhall can only fit genuine wiring to a 'genuine' Vauxhall starter motor.
