Re: bongo electrics question

Yes there are two fuses one supplies the power to the control module, hence the clicking and the other supplies the power for the actual lights themselves thru the relay inside the module. All these are listed on the Tabs here http://www.g8dhe.net/bwm , some of the modules have three power connectio...

Re: bongo electrics question

Unfortunately fuse numbering doesn't work very well on a Bongo as its different on various diagrams and years! Hence why I always locate a fuse by Block/Row/Column ! However I suspect you referring to; http://www.g8dhe.net/bwm/hotspots/x03-5.jpg as fuse 4 ? and http://www.g8dhe.net/bwm/hotspots/x03-...

Re: bongo electrics question

So what fuses precisely have you removed ? Fuses protect the wires in each loom, and will often feed several different circuits not just a single device. They are arranged in a tree fashion with each fuse protecting each branch / twig of the tree so if you have pulled fuses out you can expect severa...

Re: Temperature sensor/sender

The engine sensor uses two wires only. There is no earth connection required. As to your problem it really needs more detailed investigation to find out what is happening just using a multi-meter to check the voltages around the sensor would be a good start but, given that your also having gearbox p...

Re: Temperature sensor/sender

No the engine sensor is two wire and is insulated from earth.
The sensor for the display on the dashboard is a single wire, and an earthed body but that doesn't control the fans.

Re: Electric Blind - repeated stops

Might be best to first check with a meter if your getting power to the blinds, its easier than removing them! The front switches which do them in pairs have a habit of getting dust and dirt from the re-circulating air con over the contacts and if not used on a regular basis will cause problems. Best...

The only common fuse would be the Image

But there would be several other things that would have failed as well including the door locks!

Re: Fully draining coolant

The bleed pipe is underneath the passenger seat, runs from the front or left towards the right and is curled back on itself with a bung in the end probably best to view the Youtube video's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRAKOSxgbKo

Re: Coolant alarm

The scotch block connectors are probably the source of your problems, its critical that you use the right size wires for them to work, the standard jap wiring loom wire gauge is too small and hence the usual problem of intermittent connections causing the self-test to bleep each time there is a brea...

Re: Clicking from solenoid

You will have a problem replacing that loom, just clean up the connectors and a good squirt of contact cleaner before using WD40 before putting the relays back in.

Re: Clicking from solenoid

There are TWO relays on the frame, swap them over to test. The relays have a description on them Like
H270 -Style
12v 20A -Coil and contact rating
NO - Contact type
xxxxxx - Date code.

Re: Clicking from solenoid

That's what is causing me confusion as well! There is no obvious reason as to how that can be happening, no simple short or break is going to make that happen!! Suggest if you haven't already take the rubber covers off the relays and swap them around, just wondering if water has got down into the co...

Re: Clicking from solenoid

I doubt that they have changed the wiring significantly on a 2001 version (but you never know!) but details here you will need Flash working
