Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Just so i know i've got it clear Henrik, it's all 4 windows that don't work? Yes. Have you tried the other windows from their window switches on the doors? Yes. I'm trying to work through the Mk1 manuals online but it's a bit heavy going - no CCU as far as a i can tellbut it seems there are two rel...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Also check fuse J in the underbonnet fusebox, one of the big fusible links , thrid from the front. Checked. Nothing. Run me the fundamental idea. I’m thinking about the click. I can’t hear any relay clicking under the dash or in the engine compartment but I can hear a click in the door. I presume t...

Does it still not work if you start the engine Henrik?
No. Totally dead. Except for the click in each door.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Thanks Dave, I’ll give it a go! Now something more dramatical happened. Oh dear! Now my Windows wont go down. When I press the button (tested all doors) I can here a click inside the doors. So, something electrical happens there, but the Windows wont roll down. I would think it has something to do w...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

I don’t think thats the problem Dave, pretty sure it’s the circuit board that fails. If you remember I resoldered it earlier and that did the trick back then. Now on a different matter. I’ve been having issues with the fan. The speed goes up and down and sometimes stop, and I know the problem is in ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Definately ”tall relay” issues. I took the panel down and took it apart and sprayed and refitted and now the headlamps work again. Good to know where the problem is! But, I presume it will come back again so probably need to sort out a major solution in the future. Step one is to use the car now hop...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Thanks Dave, I’m having this week off so plan A is to use tomorrow to see whats going on armed with my multimeter. To be honest I’m considering a new small loom with external relay to run the lowbeam. I’m pretty 100% sure it’s some dodgy connection somewhere as they suddenly comes to life for a few ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

218642 Dave,

I can’t see any blown fuses but which are they again so I can try another fuse?

I hope it’s not any issues with the tall relay that I resoldered....... :(

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

It seems I need some help here. It appears I can’t make the low beam lit up no matter which cables I short. The parking/side lights work, and full beam ”blink” works but can’t get the low beam on.

Any ideas?

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Thanks Dave. Those electric gremlins aren’t my friends you know. :) I’ll give it some cleaner spray today, and hopefully will have some time to strip it tomorrow.

Off fishing today! Social distancing in a small boat in the middle of a lake! :D

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

It does sound as if the switch is potentially faulty Henrik, have you got any switch/contact cleaner at all? Yes but I’ve taken it apart and cleaned it before so it’s mechanical. I might have time tomorrow to strip the stalk again, could be one of the small springs or contact shims that are lost/Be...
