Help please i have a insignia 09 cdti Sri

I let out my clutch while starting the car by accident which caused my car not to start for a few hours it seemed like my battery died but that wasn't the case

When i start my car I turn it over and the engine goes off then I have to turn it over again to start the engine but when started I get esp service error, makes my car accelerate slow and a loss of power

I get code error, camshaft sensor but I have replaced the sensor and I still get the same error and takes same amount of time to start my car,

Please any help

So you were in gear when you let the clutch out ?

Does the car require you to press the clutch to activate the starting ?
You need the car scanned by a GM compatible diagnostics machine .

Sounds very strange. Releasing the clutch in such manner shouldn't really cause a few hour blackout. I'd check the starter motor if I was you.

It could be my starter motor but I don't think that would cause the esp service error

Glow plugs then? I'm sure glow plugs are the main part of starting a car up. Can't be sure as I'm not a mechanic but from my experience with diesels, it was a starter motor and on another occasion a glow plug (mercedes), however usually a glow plug light comes on - unsure about whether Insignia diesel has this as mine is petrol.
