I have an electricalfault on my 2003 156 2.0jts, It keeps blowing (once renewed lasts a few mins then pops) fuse F2 on fuse board B98A to help eliminate components I want to un plug all of the components on the string and plug in one by one and see which is causing the short I know the locations of all apart from L10 fuel vapour recovery solinoid, N76 timing variator actuator & L15 varible geometry control solinoid.
Can anyone help with the plug locations of the above. I've attached a circuit diagram showing the affected circuit highlighted red.
Thanks

Right I've found that the left post cat lambda is causing the short, so my next question is does anyone know if any of those universal lambdas on the market are any good and if so which one to go for?
Thanks

L10 fuel vapour recovery solinoid: is under the throttle body, towards the bulk head

N76 timing variator actuator: is to the rear of the engine, under the top cover

L15 varible geometry control solinoid: is to the left of the N76 timing variator actuator, larger, approx 4" in diameter

Hi Smaky,
What oil leak?
I've not lost a drop since my last trip up the M4 to a very good Alfa specialist. Thanks again.
I had a few prices for Bosch OE lambdas but was curious if it was worth getting one without the plug and crimping the conections.
Cheers

Eurocarparts.com do the post cat direct replacment sensors for £66.70 inc vat and p&p. Best price I've had so far.
