Clicking Noise from factory fit kitchen

Post by cleanbeans » Mon Apr 12, 2021 5:19 pm

Ignition off
Wait 30 seconds
Clicking noise sounds from underneath the fridge.

I think its to do with the battery being low but all lights, Fan, Tap work as expected. Turn all the switches on clicking noise stops for 30 sec.

The previous has, by the looks had a play with the wiring behind the switches so not quite sure what is going down.

Is this spilt charge relay? is that located there?
This is hard to say since someone has changed the wiring but on a standard set up. If it is a battery drain issue, what might cause the battery to run down?

Any help would be great.

I tried to load the wiring diagrams but couldn't get them to load, Any help on that would also be great?

Thanks

There is a charging relay, but the original is often changed as getting a replacement battery in there is not so easy, and its a bit of an odd circuit that is used. If its been altered then it could be anything!

The Wiring diagrams aren't currently available as they used Flash which has now been deleted by Adobe and most browsers. They may in due course get revised to work with the current replacements, but might be a while.

Thanks for a quick reply.
Do you know if there is photos of the original stuff, anywhere?

Maybe I'm getting a bit confused but it looks like the charger is Japanese.

It also contains a 110v charger for Jap EHU charging, as well as charging from the alternator.
