vito mk1 cdi wont start sometimes??
ive got a 2002 108 cdi ,this has been going on a while now and just lived with it but now its got really bad and have to bump start it sometimes to get it running other times you just put the key in and get dash lights but doesnt turn over till a few times of flicking the key,im thinking just replace the starter motor? but has any one come across this before? thanks in advance

It could be as simple as a corroded or loose terminal on the starter motor but it sounds to me like a faulty solenoid.
Does it only start immediately after you have switched it off? If that is the case then it could be your battery at fault

I've had this problem too. Only happens on very cold or damp mornings. i've changed the starter motor, the original one was sluggish, still did it. I noticed if i held the key in the crank position for up to 10 seconds it would start to crank.
I changed the ignition barrel & lead & the starter lead from the battery as the terminal was corroded.
Still does it. Checked the wiring diagram & found there is a relay (which is listed against my van's VIN number) between the ECM & the starter circuit to stop the starter engaging when the engine is running.
Can't find this relay anywhere.....
