Re: Changes to the site

I seem to recall James saying something about this on another thread, just after that downtime incident. The idea was he would remove the PHP Debug after a couple of months if memory serves but i guess it's just slipped his mind.

Re: The other Lodein's cars

I can't remember the mileage i'm afraid, that was just after quite a long restoration process in about 2002. The car was a 1983 car and the sills among other parts had rotted quite badly.

I traded it in about a year later for my XJ40.

Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

There is an almost identical Audi/NSU living in my village here as well. The owner also has a collection of other vehicles including a Jag or three, Mustang and so on.

Good to see your ROver out and about too! :wink: :D

Re: The other Lodein's cars

Very nice! I like seeing the Daimler as it reminds me of my S3 Jag Sovereign 4.2 :

Not got many pics of it and that's probably the best one. :wink: :D

Re: Fastback's cars.

It does sound very much like the CCU at fault Mark. The test now is to fit the Vitesse CCU into the Sterling and connect the battery. If the lights come on and won't go off then it's the CCU - do you know the part number on it? Should be YWC10xxx if memory serves.

OK, unplug C80 (J5), the lights go out. Time to swap out the CCU?
Go for it! Don't forget to disconnect the battery first though.

Re: Fastback's cars.

Making notes is always helpful - either go through a notebook in chronologial/page order or date your notes, it's saves confusion later! Ask me how i know this! :oops: Better still, please don't ask me how i know this! :oops: :P :lol:

Re: Fastback's cars.

It should all work with the Sterling CCU, don't forget to disconnect the battery (keys away from the car!!!) before removing the CCU but i don't think the CCU is your problem as you've unplugged it from the circuit and the lights remain on. If all puddle lamps and interior lights are removed bar the...

Re: Fastback's cars.

That's the multi-million dollar question Mark! Have you done anything on your doors recently that involved removing and refitting anything? If so, has the wiring to the piddle lamps caught the window regulator and chafed causing an earth return? Similar question elsewhere in the car on anything, the...

Re: Fastback's cars.

More that there is a fault in one or both of the light units and/or a wire is trapped shorting to earth - this wire would normally be the one the CCU switches to earth to bring the lights on.

Remind me of the cost of the sills please Mark?

Re: Fastback's cars.

I'll have a look at the diagram later Mark and see if i can find some pointers for you try first. It may dound silly but if you pop the lenses off the front and rear courtesy lights and remove the bulbs then the two screws that hold the courtesy lights in and then refit the bulbs, do they work as th...

I need a NSF indicator lens assembly for a 99 fastback (TGM). Bay of E not showing any apart from one that looks like a NS but is listed as OS? Anyone got one in their spares they don't want? That sounds like a fair swap Chris! :P :lol: I have some in my spares stash, i'll exhume them later and pos...
