A quick question regarding relays in a '87 1,5 Green Cloverleaf (V5 details okay but engine has inboard discs so something not quite right as I thought these had been phased out by then).
I didn't want it for the paperwork though...
On the drivers side under the bonnet, just for'd of the main fuses there is a unit marked Lucas 12V with cooling fins. There is a relay next to it and I think it's something to do with the lighting as when I plug it in the drivers side outer headlight comes on (much brighter than normal) and doesn't switch off until unplugged again. When unplugged the lights seem to work normally (sic).
The Haynes manual doesn't cover the later models and although it mentions wiper delay relays they are behind the battery on the other side.
Another question: when changing from idling to faster revs the alternator and oil pressure light come on for half a second or so, but the gauge looks okay.
Hopefully this is in the right thread as after twenty years of Alfas I've a fair few questions! Any advice gratefully received.
