    Deleting the facelift nav and radio (rolling back the years...)

    Hi Some day I can see myself finding a really clean facelift 100 (I currently have a pre-facelift 2002 - I've done a lot to bring it up to scratch but it's had a hard life before me and the dreaded tin worm may eventually get the best of it). But the one thing that puts me off the newer models...

    ASPW flogging another Troopie that 'he' built.

    I happened to watch this video last night. It _is_ a very nice truck, no question, and maybe for someone who just wants to hit the road it might be a good deal. Base vehicle new looks to be around £40-45k, and this one has had a lot of expensive work done. If you value all those add-ons maybe it...

    Cruise control problem and gear indicator problem... Two birds, one stone?

    175,000 miles... But... It's fixed! :D I took the Neutral Safety Switch off (aka Park Neutral Switch etc). First oberservation - the connector was jammed with a dry white substance. Best guess is silicone grease, but old and dried out. I also opened the unit up, thoroughly cleaned...

    Cruise control problem and gear indicator problem... Two birds, one stone?

    Hi In my quest to stamp out the few electrical gremlins in my truck (sadly I think it has had a hard life...)... I am faced with two apparently unrelated problems. Only now, I'm starting to wonder (hope against hope..?) whether they could be two manifestation of the same problem. I'd be...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    PS.... for general interest...: I spotted the alarm module itself. It's a TVSS IV-S.

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    Weekend update.... Using the circuit diag for the suspect HAZ/TRN circuit, I saw that the the first component beyond the fuse (apart from a loom connector) is the T11 flasher unit. Disconnecting this would effectvely take the entire rest of the indicator circuit out of the picture. I did this...

    Bonnet and tailgate switches - where!?

    It turns out that the bonnet does have a switch... and contrary to my expectation, it is working! The reason I suspected it could be at fault (or absent!) is that AHC height changes do not get blocked when the bonnet is open, whereas opening a cabin door cancels the height change. I assumed...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    It's a 2002 model year so I guess not the same alarm, but I haven't been able to find any info so far. 40mA sounds much closer to what I would expect (I think I recall a technical document from Mr T quoting an expected range of 35-50mA, but I can't swear to the accuracy of my memory :)) So...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    Removing and hopefully opening the siren was going to be my next step, at the weekend if the stars align correctly. It must have either a battery or capacitor into in order to sound the disconnection beeper at least, so if I can get to those I might be able to renew them. That's the plan, but I...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    I'm not aware of it being aftermarket, but I'm not sure how I can check that. I assumed that by that point (2002) most cars had factory alarms as standard. If I could find the part number for the siren module, and find one on new or on ebay for a reasonable price, I'd be willing to take a punt...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    The intrigue continues. According to the HAZ/TRN system diagram, there should be no permanent consumers on that circuit except for the obvious turn signal components. But, I found a couple of things that contradict this in my case. 1) Pulling the fuse causes the alarm siren to beep a few...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    Ah I see, yes. I tried to look for it yesterday (supposed to be in the bundle of cabling inside the jack compartment at the back) but couldn't see any likely candidate. It's not very pleasant in there - Dinitrol wax bundles of cable with foam wrapped connectors... However... (see next message...)

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    I was able to find the circuit diagram for the HAZ/TRN circuit last night and you're right - it doesn't do anything else. Just a turn relay and a towing relay, switches, connectors and lamps. In light of that, and indeed your comments regarding turn relays, I am quite hopeful that I will at...

    Parasitic drain identified on HAZ/TRN fuse... abnormal?

    I did wait a little while, but will give it a good 5-10 mins and check again to confirm. Nothing in the OBD and the CD changer no longer exists :) Thanks simon303

    Bonnet and tailgate switches - where!?

    Nothing on the bonnet - interesting! Well, you've saved me the effort of trying to find something that doesn't exist - thanks! I'll open up the tailgate and fish around in there - thanks again :) sim303
