Earth strap on the engine coming loose?


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Hi Pollok123 just seen your problem I`ve just had the same problem on my S*+troen Dispatch it turned out to be, after renewing every earth lead and any other that I found!!!, the POSITVE terminal on the battery just took it off cleaned it up and heypresto 6,500 miles later (fingerscrossed etc) it`s been great hope this helps

I'm of the same opinion- it sounds like an earth. Used to have a mate who had a really nice Mk 1 Escort Mexico with extra lamps and stuff which everytime you went over a decent sized bump all the lights went out. Scary in the middle of the night on a country road that one!
