Re: Couple of issues

That is the only helpful clue, a wire or circuit on those two switch positions is 'stopping' the engine. So, it is either preventing a vital feedback from the running engine getting back into the ECU , or it is 'higher up the chain' and taking the ECU relay out directly ? And the headlamp isn't work...

Re: Couple of issues

I have been looking at those circuits and to try and NOT guess at what is taking the engine out is...................... Instinct keeps saying "It's the engine change to blame" , ie something has been damaged on the wiring loom, somewhere. A lot of very careful visual examination seems a good start....

Re: Couple of issues

You really need to narrow the search down by isolating blocks of circuit .
Look at that wiring diagram book , section 32 , you will see various plugs that allow you to do this.

Re: Couple of issues

As for lights, switch drives relay, relay feeds motors.
If the relay is working then I would suspect broken wire or poor earth somewhere.
Clutch ?
You must have had a problem before , new master cylinder fitted , job for Janice in the morning I think while you watch what is happening !

Re: Lazer brakes

Well done Malcolm. I was going to mention replacing all the brake caliper bolts for stainless , especially those on the rear calipers. Rounded heads are a real pain , best avoided. Denso tape wound round the shaft on the rear calipers where it enters the ' lip seal ' in the caliper body helps too. T...

Re: 2007 radio fault

First problem. Removing the radio , get the radio out and you will see EXACTLY the type of radio you will need to replace it. Different radios, have different sockets !!!! Second problem. Only a Probe aerial has the right connectors and unless you know what you are doing..............good luck. Are ...

Re: 2007 radio fault

Unfortunately, that confirms what I have noticed , it is the aerial that kills a really good radio. It will be the aerial control circuit component failure that needs repairing , the radio side will be fine. Finding a gifted amateur ,or professional to repair it.......................good luck. Make...

Re: 2007 radio fault

Re: Erratic idle speed 2.5 v6. Please help!

Well done , one last little thing to check , though you have probably done it ! Look at the tiny ball-race that runs through the curved slot off the throttle quadrant plate. Make sure it is turning freely as you get someone to slowly press the accelerator pedal (engine not running ) to the floor. Re...
