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 .

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 ?

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
