I Had the same problem with my corsa,So i bought a new battery from euro parts online and they delivery to the house next day.
Now my car start ok now. But it took me over a hour to swap it when 1o years ago it would have took 10 mins to do.

The battery was cheap to buy cost me 41.95 in total

Might be worth checking your erg valve as they get really dirty and can cause all manner of starting problems..

Is there a glow plug relay on the Astra? There is on Peugeots and that is a common fail item.

I know it's a bit of a treck, but I always take my Vauxhall to Andy Stockton in Widnes. He is an independent Vauxhall specialist and usually uses the OPCOM to confirm his diagnosis, rather than make it. He knows the cars inside and out, gives excellent service and is good value.

As I said, I know it's a bit far away, but he's never failed to fix my 'problem' zafira, so he's my first port of call and to be honest, the only reason I'd buy another zaf.

A common problem with diesels (certainly astras) is leakoff pipes. They make starting a real problem and some garages replace everything first before checking them. If you park overnight with the car pointing down a hill, does it start any easier?

These often suffer from diesel pump faults.

Is the engine management light on?
