Re: Brake fluid change

DOT 3, 4, and 5.1 fluids are found in most brake and clutch systems. DOT 5 is a silicone oil based fluid and can only be used in new, dry systems. In short, you can put DOT 4 in place of DOT 3 but not the other way around. DOT 5 is not compatible with DOT 3 and 4 systems. *Apparently, according to m...

Re: Odd failures - fixed (partially)

Last bad Rev Counter i had i cured by changing the Electronics unit for it on the back of the Clock. Mine was intermittent and would show revs when it felt like it. I'd already replaced that part. I guess it could have been the fuse box again and I replaced a working set with a dodgy set, but who k...

Re: Odd failures - fixed (partially)

Fixed, but not completely.

I found a spare CPU but it didn't make any difference, and I had a spare fuse box as well, so I thought I'd throw it in and see what happened.

Hey presto, everything bar the rev counter now works again.

Anyone any idea what could be up with the rev counter?

Have you pulled the CPU and took the cover off and
gave it a visual
No, not yet. I have managed to find a spare unit so might just throw it in and see what happens, but I didn't think the CPU had anything to do with ACC power. (Happy, as always, to be corrected.)

Re: Odd failures

While I was out last night I thought I'd try No 4 on the list.

Sunroof doesn't work with key in ACC position, but windows do.
I'll do everything in order when I get some time later though.

Re: Odd failures

Been looking at the Wiring Diagrams and have a Path for you to follow. 1) Check 60A Fuse in Battery Junction Box (IG KEY) 2) Power Feed to Ignition Switch should be Black / Blue Wire (Heavy Duty) Check at Connector under Dash and then again at Ignition Switch to ensure you have 12V supply to Switch...

Re: Odd failures

You never know what people know until you ask the question, but I get your point.

Checked all fuses in the engine bay box and all are OK.

Does anyone know if any of the relays are involved in ACC supply?

Might be a relay problem.

Re: Odd failures

Don't have the manuals yet. Will be getting them at Beaulieu but was hoping to get this sorted before then.

Not sure if these items have any common points, I was hoping someone with much more experience / knowledge than me could answer that question.

If the 12v ACC feed isn't working, possibly a dodgy ignition switch.
What else relies on the ACC position so I can eliminate that possibility? Unless of course everything is supplied from the same ACC circuit!
