Re: Brake light failure - need advice
It;d be nice if they had left the failure warning chip on the dash unit like the 156, it's a lot simpler and cheaper to change!
But Smaky, if you jumper from another lamp wire and then snip the wire with the residual current, surely that stops the circuit and stops the drain?
isteve, IIRC there are a whole host of different body computers for different models of 147, but only the same one as you have will work in your car, they're not interchangeable. Could be wrong though?
BTW if you tried to change the Body Computer yourself, what needs to be updated afterwards? Keycode, radio code....??? Can this be done without access to an Examiner unit?
