Question about Chevrolet Captiva
Sounds like a stater motor, or battery problem, check battery first, to start with.

If there is power to the dash when you turn the key on but the car dosnt turn over you most likley will need to replace the starting motor. There is a possibility that the wires are damaged on the start circuit of the starting motor but this is rare compared to a worn out starter motor.
If there is no power to the dash with the key on and everythung lights up once push started than your problem lies with the battery or battery wires connected to the battery. Good luck

i have a dealers manual somewhere and i put it somewhere safe and i cannot find it ,typical but if its converted right it should start on lpg with no problem without starting on petrol but it all depends on the type of conversion and who fitted it i suppose .I have a 4.0 litre version and what a tool its just so impressive only wish i could get a few more weddings to do in to help pay the road tax here in spain

I also have a Chevy Captiva 2L Diesel but with the auto box. The MPG on that one is abysmally bad! I bought it a few weeks ago with just under 30K miles on the clock (2007 model), and it returns around 230 miles on a full tank! That's around 17 MPG and probably on par with a Hummer!!
I was expecting the auto box to be less efficient than the manual of course but not to consume twice as much. Anyone out there with any ideas as to why this could be? I was actually already checking under the car to see if it loses fuel... We live in the suburbs and our trips can be considered a mix of urban and extra urban (they are admittedly on the short side and from a cold winter start; still, this doesn't justify the extremely low MPG). The car seems adequately powered for its weight and considering the small'ish engine and auto box.

sounds like clutch switch, Check under dash follow clutch pedal up and see if there is a switch under dash, should be Purple wires going to it Heavy gauge wires, need to unplug it and put a jumper in from one side to other and cover with tape so it doesen't touch and ground out and blow a fuse, then see if it will start and if it took care of your problem, if so replace switch
