In work at the moment so will send one as soon as I'm finished. Went out at lunch to collect child from school and while at it decided to change the fuse. Of course you need to open glove box to gain access to fuse box. Pulled it down and something popped off the hinge bit and fell in behind part of the plastic cladding on the left side! Shouldn't even be a gap there lol. I'll have to find that bit now. BTW thanks for all your help with this
I've just got the old heater resistor out of the bin and on inspecting it I can see burnt plastic around 'A4' I think it says so this points to why number 4 of the fan has stopped working again.
The connecting loom going to it most definitely needs replaced then. I'm guessing the connection has burnt out altogether now. I also reckon I didn't need to buy a new heater resistor as old one was probably ok. All the pins still look fine apart from number 4 with the bit of melted plastic around it.
See pics attached to this post.
I ordered the new loom of ebay. When I go to rewire this do I need to remove the car battery or is it ok with electrics off and car door open?
you are going to be working with the electrics of the car, therefore it is always best to disconnect the battery for a couple of reasons
1. you may accidentally earth the +12v wire and cause CPU to blow up or a fire or knock yourself backwards for a bit
2. you dont know how long the job is going to take and having the car unlocked and doors open, a lot of the CPU's will have fired up and your battery will die if you go too long
if they are the same size, and what has snapped was a plastic version of them , these will make a stonger hinge but I dont know how the door is configured and whether it is a straight through bolt or not
Vapulabis thanks for helping with this. As far as I can see that may have originally went through orange and yellow parts in my photo and then was connected to the pink part where it looks broken in the photo?
If you look at photo 2 the orange circle is where it has broken off. Well I think so anyway. I may be able to file this part and then screw a small hole and then possible put in a long screw or bolt?
I need to remove it anyway to do the wiring loom for the heater resistor but wondering if the glove box all pulls out as one or is where I've circled etc fixed to the dash and the other part comes out alone?
I have never used them so I cannot offer an informed decision, I suppose its the same argument when push fit plumbing connectors came out, every one went "oh No the will never hold" but they are all over the place now, if they work in the house they will work in the car, as to whether the environment in the car will keep them working is another matter, the temp extremes are bigger in a car left outside than in a home, the moisture levels are higher in a car than in a home, but then again I can tell you that insulation displacment connectors have been used in the telecommunications world for 40 odd years, so the technology is mature enough. after all the prevarication, go for it, they are cheap, if they fail then go back to the old fashioned crimps
Hi, i have a Laguna coupe, the handbrake switch light started to stay on, on the switch itself when the handbrake was off, then the light stopped working all together but the handbrake works as it should, this in turn triggered the service spanner and service alert in the box on the dash...
I read your previous posts about this. I never had this message, but had to change my alternator and only since then this message came on. Changed battery to be sure, guys came for diagnostics, cleared twice on two software programs,once you start message pops up again. Any recommendations...
Hi all, Im trying to find a fault with my Megane Scenic 2001 2lt 16v Monaco Privilage F4R Engine, would anybody have a Diagram of the wiring for this car. There seems to possibly be diffenent setup in the 2lt 16v, the Diagram I need is for Engine Management and it should include a Throttle...
I purchased my Laguna ('96) a few months back and have only now noticed that the second key fob does not operate the central locking etc. I recall the chap that sold it to me saying he had changed the battery and am assuming that he never recoded it to the car.
Anyone know how I do...
This seems to be a great forum with a lot of collected knowledge!
So I've decided to post this here.
It all started with my left headlight bulb (thats the drivers side here in Sweden) going out.
First, when turning on the left indicators, it blinks like before. But if I brake at the same time...
