I’m in Stranraer in SW Scotland but happy for someone to arrange a courier.
Thinking about selling the Amazon and wondered what people value it at before I advertise it properly. Had it a few years and it’s been a great vehicle for us.
It’s the 4.2 auto with about 173k miles and Full Stamped Service History and loads of receipts.
Loads of mods.
Had a few issues with the Amazon this last year or so.
It tried to start itself a couple of times when it was sat on the driveway (locked up with no keys in it, burnt out the starter), fixed now but the Mrs has lost confidence in it.
Its the family daily driver, my Mrs uses it, its...
Hi, Im having problems with my central locking. It keeps locking. As soon as the car is unlocked it locks again by itself. Not ideal as we were locked out the car with the keys in it when it first happened. Alarm works fine on the fob and the indicators flash.
Its as if there is a short to...
Another update. Removed the plug from the bottom of the ignition barrel - still 12v.
I left it dry out overnight and the 12v is now gone. Think the best plan is to try to stop the water leak.
Anyone any idea where to look? All the bolts for the roofers are in with silicon so don't think its...
Just removed the glovebox and there's water getting in behind it from somewhere. I removed the ECU for better access, still 12v with the ECU removed.
I suspect it might be water sitting in a wirings harness connector and shorting between two pins.
Makes sense as it has been torrential rain all...
The 9v is now 12v and that's with the ignition off.
When I jumped in and put it in 'D' it didn't stop it trying to start.
I put it back into 'P' and turned the ignition to 'ON' and it started started away but I could hear it was still cranking even once it was running.
The fault is back again folks.
I have 12v again on 2 pins so the fault is there and will try to start with the ignition off.
Putting the gearbox in 'R' or 'D' didn't stop it. Only when I pulled the Starter Relay.
Its not the Relay or the Starter motor.
I think only "STAR" is an output. NSW is Neutral Start Switch which tells the ECU when the gearstick is in P or N.
"STA" is a signal to tell the ECU the engine is being cranked and to send more fuel.
That symbol from ECU pin 17 is just a wiring harness connector.
I think its looking like the...
The black/white wire on the multi-plug at the bottom of the ignition barrel shows 9v with the ignition on. 0v with it off.
0v at the relay with the multi-plug disconnected as expected.
Is there anyone who could do a quick check at their starter relay to confirm there shouldn't be 9v with the...
Yeah that's my understanding of it Grimbo.
When I pulled the 30A AM2 Fuse I lost the 9v and also when I pulled the 20A EFI/ECD fuse.
It also disappeared when the gearstick wasn't in the Park or Neutral positions, so it must be before that interlock looking at the diagram.
With ignition OFF I get 12v top left 0v on the others.
Ignition ON i get 12v top left and 9v bottom right (think you are right about the earth fault there Jon).
Ignition to START I get 12v top left and 12v bottom right.
All checked with the relay removed.
It makes sense apart from the 9v when...
Had the starter off today and checked the solenoid, there was a bit of pitting on the contacts but they were in pretty good condition, (I had replaced them about 18months ago). Nothing obvious and the wiring to the starter looked fine. Going to replace the relay next as its quick and easy.
Ok I'll forget the 'power back up the wire' theory.
I only tested with the relay removed. Now that the fault has disappeared Im getting 12v at the top left pin in the picture, nothing else.
With the ignition to ON I'm still getting 12v at the top left but also 9v bottom right. (I guess the...
The starter relay is in the relay box under the bonnet at the passenger side which is the original position. I checked the relay and it seems fine although maybe its worth changing to rule it out?
The solenoid with the plunger is on the side of the starter motor so it too is in the original...
Still not figured it out Jon, its sat on the driveway. I fit the relay in the morning and pull it before I leave it at night but its stopped doing it which is annoying as I don't want to leave it incase it does it again.
I took it to a garage and they suggested fitting a push button start but...
Heard the LC trying to start today so ran outside to find it trying to start itself!
It was locked, keys were in the house and it was cranking away. Went back and got the keys, jumped in and turned the ignition on and it started straight away without turning it to start.
Turned it off at the...
Is the only advantage to 18's being a greater selection of tyres or are they wider as well?
I want to increase the overall diameter and width of wheel and tyre not just a bigger wheel with lower profile tyre.
Has anyone experience with wheel spacers like these:
