Alternator Wiring Campaign
When I was having my recent wiper fault fixed, I was told that there's a campaign on to check the alternator wiring on some 147s; apparently a wire is missing from the harness that prevents the alternator from charging when the engine is below 2000rpm. This affected my October 2001 Selespeed.
Unfortunately, while fitting the missing wire, the mechanic broke another connection so the oil pressure warning lamp was on all the time. This was late on Friday afternoon so I was lent a car for the weekend and Monday until this was put right too.
Top marks to the dealers for keeping me informed what was going on and keeping me mobile with the minimum of inconvenience.
