Electrics - any ideas?
Got in to start my phase 1 at the weekend - no electric windows, no side, head, main beam lights and the ABS & Brake Fluid warning lights stay on.
I checked the workshop manual and it looked like Fuse no.4 needed changing. But, it was fine as was every other fuse (checked them all).
Looking at the fuse box diagram, it seemed that one of the relays might be the problem as it fed all fuses controlling what was not working.
Before buying a new relay, I swapped it with another relay with exact same spec and reference numbers. Sadly, no difference.
So, unless I have overlooked something basic, the problem is neither the fuse nor the relay. I just fear that this is going to turn into a lengthy investigation of trial & error to find out what the problem is. I really do not want to get into messing about with the ignition and all that entails.
Any ideas/advice? Thanks.
PS: I bought a 2006 147 2.0 twinny off EBay 3 weeks back. Previous Category C write off but with 25k genuine miles and one previous owner. Good price and am slowly bringing it up to Alfisti standard. Driving a higher car with 4 doors is certainly practical but I now realise I've been spoilt by the 916's roadholding over the last 14 years!
