I'd also be checking the physical connections on the terminals on the starter motor, plus the main gearbox earth connection.
Good point Adrian considering it died while it was being used. Also the alternator fuse in the underbonnet fuse box.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

As far as i've been able to work out, the ignition switch on the 800 is a sealed unit so sadly not. I'll have a hunt later and see what i can find. :wink: :D

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

With those symptoms Henrik, i'd be looking at the ignition/starter switch on the end of the steering lock/ignition barrel. Fairly easy to change if you have a spare and i'm fairly sure the Mk1 and Mk2 used the same switch but would have to check. I may have a Mk2 switch somewhere, can't remember if ...

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Brilliant news Scott - i should have thought of that as i had it happen on my Sterling not long after i got it but in all honesty, that was 12+ years ago and i'd forgotten until you mentioned it.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Very strange Henrik! I'll have a think and see what i come up with. Might be worth checking the fusible links in the underbonnet fusebox, corrosion on the ends and/or breaks in them can cause symptoms like you have.

When you say even with a new battery it was still dead, was it not even turning over?

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

It's a puzzle Henrik, did you have the charge warning light when you first turned the key to position 2 before starting? Also worth checking the fuses, the alternator has 2 or 3 fused feeds to make it work, if any of those aren't present it won't charge and often won't show it's not charging. Could ...

Not this time. Because I have got the door trims off you could actually see the puddles in the sill and when you opened those doors you got a shoe full of water! :lol:
Drain holes in the bottoms of the doors?
