Hi guys (and gals) !
I have finally taken a closer look at mine after 3-4 years of demistifier not working. Wasn't exactly on the top of my "to do" list
BUT... It is turning out to be a bit more tricky than I thought. My car is a left hand drive TB version from 1996 (Italian market version) and I have a service manual from ebay. According to the wiring diagram mine has, or should I say should have, a timed relay? It is hard for me to know since the relay is missing. Also the location of the fuse is different from even a 1997 ts model I saw a picture of recently.
Here is what I have found out so far:
I thought it would be a breeze to fix; Plug in a relay and then do the mod. But I have not been able find the type it should be. I have tried the circuit with a "normal" basic relay and light comes on & 12v at demistifier as long as button is pressed. As soon as I let go it turns off.
So basicly what I'm asking is: Do you know if maybe early versions had a timer in the relay, or should I find a separate controlbox somewhere? Where?
If it is a timer relay then how the heck do I find one not knowing the code. Local shop looked at the schematic and said it is a timer relay according to the drawing (thats what it looks like to me as well), but he has no idea of the type or where to get one. Thanks!
Here is a picture of the manual, hope it is ok to post it here?
I would appreciate any help you can offer
