Re: Leisure battery charger advise

Any idea how long its been very low ? As much more than a week or two and there will be damage to the plates.

Re: Sliding door middle runner catching

Not heard of any damaged guides normally its a bit of grit, sand, clip or something in the track causing grief. Very often its the lower guide down below the step that gets filled and needs brushing out.

Re: Leisure battery charger advise

One of the most common causes of popping the charging fuses is that the LB has been left to discharge badly and then the engine is started and revved before pulling away, the voltage sensitive relay has promptly switched over, the alternator will quite happily try to put 90+ Amps thru the charging f...

Re: Reset of central locking after jumpstart

I would have thought most garages would look at it for you if your unable to look at it yourself. I assume your able to get into the door using the key ?

Re: Reset of central locking after jumpstart

Sounds more like the drivers door solenoid is not happy, its not something that can get out of sync as such, there all powered from the same system in the these later vehicles it appears. Suggest you get the door card off and inspect the drivers door solenoid maybe be ready to replace it if necessary.

Re: electrical issues

The beeping will only stop, coming down, when BOTH switches have operated at the front. It almost sounds as if one or both are opening up after initially closing, check that there isn't too much inside the AFT and that the sliders on each side aren't being jammed by anything in the guide tracks. Cle...

Re: Main beam not working and lights go off

Before replacing the stalk, a much more expensive item, do just check the lamp connectors and the earth connection down to the chassis, they are known for over heating and causing problems, its a faint possibility that it might be the connecting blocks, if so then better quality ceramic ones can be ...

Re: Low ventilation air flow

If all the flaps are working correctly; http://www.g8dhe.net/bongo_images/aircon-control-flaps.JPG Then it might be worth checking the cooling matrix which all the air flows thru, it does get very jammed up with all the muck overtime and reduses the airflow quite alot, it follows after the fan itsel...

Re: Main beam not working and lights go off

Depends on age of the vehicle, the early ones don't use a relay and the lights are driven direct from the contacts both for Flash and beams. After 1997/9 then a relay was put in to handle main beams but the Flash is still direct from the switch itself. 1995-1997 1995 Page_66 1997-onwards 1997 Page_66

Re: Android Stereo cutting out

A little surprising, but some people seem to get a very short battery life when idle and yet others can go months. Which leads me to suspect that there are parasitic drains on the battery you really need a meter to measure the current being drawn when the ignition is off, anything above 50mA needs u...

Re: electrical issues

Right OK, wasn't sure if you were thinking all the electrical faults were related, as they really don't have much in common! OK you found the normal drivers door loom problem, be aware that once one or two have snapped then the others are on there way which includes having the window fail in the rai...

Re: Alternator? D+?

The signal on X-20 is NOT what you want, it is connected to earth when the alternator is not generating, and connected to the dashboard light and hence to the battery when the ignition is turned on. What is this connection "D+" that your referring too, it sounds like Dynamo +ve output, in which case...

Re: temp gauge gone mad...

Not quite sure what you have found as the sensor on the engine, what colour wire is it that you have found, I may be able to locate what it is from that.
