Do you think I need a new starter????

Could be a sticking starter solenoid (if they still use such things on these modern motors). Have had a few of those in my distant past.
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP. Persamos green.
does the igintion key work okay ? any stiffness when start/stopping engine
on vauxhalls starter staying on while engine running is common due to the block that the key shaft type thing fits into becoming rounded
the block with the wires to it i mean,steve

Please make sure you don't run the car in this condition!! starter motor can get hot enough to start an engine bay fire!

Brother had this on his 1.6hdi. Cooked his starter.
It was caused by a build up of dirt in the ignition barrel meaning it sticking in the starting position. Sprayed some GT85 lube into the ignition and worked it a few times with the key, and back like new.
