Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Check your fuses Henrik, can't remember which one but there's a separate one for the dash lights if memory serves. Might just be dirty spades on the fuse so give each fuse you check a clean on the blades with some emery tape or similar.

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

That was actually the circuit i was trying to think of Adrian but had a mental block on it as well. Also falked on the sofa in a very strange position last night.

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

This is mostly why I want to do away with the electromagnetic clutch altogether - the facelift versions did exactly that and just had a permanently driven pulley. The switch would be nice to retain control, hence the button-switch I'd like to install. If later models had a permanently driven pulley...

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

That points to an ECU fault then or as it's described in the link i posted, PCM - Powertrain Command Module which is USA-speak for ECU so this is beginning to make some more sense now. What about a secondhand ECU? If you can get the Bosch number off it (usually they start 0 280 xxx yyy but later stu...

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

Hmmm, interesting! Confirms my original suggestion when you first found the supercharger wasn't working - someone else had the same problem and couldn't fix it so sold it on. Apparently those K40 relays are cheap according to one post you linked to, could be worth just throwing one of those at it on...

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

I should have asked sooner, have you checked your codes at all? If your codes bear any relevance to the first link where replacing the BUK101 transistor sorted it (which is what i was thinking of but didn't know the component designation) then it might be worth investing in one (and a tube of heatsi...

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

I'll see what i can knock up later for you Adrian, silly thought though, have you checked the clutch output on the ECU at all? I seem to recall you said there were two wires going to the clutch and one was +12V with the ignition on, the other one would be connected to the ECU. If you can test contin...

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

I haven't done my wipers yet... Anyway - just wanted to check. On a very long decent (no throttle for at least 30 seconds, about 65/70pmh), the Vitesse temp gauge dropped right down and only warm (not hot) air was available.. So it's overcooling. Suspect knackered stat, right? Right - does it take ...

Re: Free to collector Rover 820 Saloon (could be returned to road or used as parts)

I'm not sure if this will be helpful or not and no idea how far Chorley is from where Adrian is but Kyle - could you help Adrian shift it, perhaps over a weekend or other time when you're both available?

I prefer that slightly sporty rasp that a cat system gives with no cat. It also lets the engine do what it should! :wink: :D

The C27 has a very distinctive note that carries, even when it's quiet, not surprised your missus could hear you Henrik!
I expect you gave it a bit more welly through frustration at going to the wrong side making it even more distinctive. :P :wink: :D

Re: BMC / BL Show Gaydon 2020

Great pics there Mark! As for Jons car, i don't think they were this bright and shiny when they left the factory!

Even the exhaust looks perfect! :wink: :D
