Electrical gremlins - '89 164 3.0 V6

Got a couple of niggling things up that I have a suspicion may be related, but I have no way of proving just yet...

- Blower fan doesn't operate
- Door lights no go
- rear reading lamps no go
- vanity mirror lights no go

I also can't find a permanent +12V line on the harness connector for the radio (none installed presently), and to add insult to injury the stop light warning light is on, but goes off when I push the brake pedal (looks to me like this is a bad earth under the dash). oil dipstick symbol & the ( (!) ) light (brake warning? maybe a brake pad sensor?) are also on.

Everything else seems to be working though, air/c stepper motors are working, as are the LCD readouts, glovebox light, other dash buttons etc.

Any suggestions or solutions are greatly appreciated

If you don't get any joy here try joining here http://www.digest.net/alfa/FAQ/164/ as there are a fair few 12v owners who post regularly with technical issues in the discussion forum, the experience and combined knowledge of the 12v cars makes it a valuable community to belong to. Worth buying a Cardisc as well which includes all wiring diagrams and troubleshooting procedures for just about everything that can go wrong

Hopefully someone here will be able to help you out, I would try but I dont have access to any 12v diagrams etc, only 24v ones

Edit: try this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...973269306&rd=1 to save splicing wiring etc
