Hi Brian thanks for the info i will get onto that project on Monday and let you know the outcome .
before i start this little pet project was there anything from the DLC pin readings that made you come to this conclusion and if it is connected to that which pin and wire colour was it ? Also is this a problem that could occur again somewhere else on the car and if so should i think about replaceing the car
ok done that but havent found any signs of breakage or corrosion. I have also checked the ABS sensors (4)
the reading across pins 6 to 14 is 70 ohms and across 3 to 11 is 26 ohms
Hi Brian the reg is YB08 OMX and the readings are 26 ohms for pin 3 to 11
I will be online for the next 45 minutes
Hi there Brian
ok will tackle this later and let you know resul tomorrow if thts ok
just a quick one what is the easiest way to access the climate control unit.
Well i have managed to get the surround off and have unpluged the the two looms from the back. Firstly how do you know which pins are which numbers and secondly what do you mean when you say "cluter wire"
i get that but not sure what you mean by join to cluter wire ie which cluter
Not yet will have to resume tomorrow . will let you know then.
out of the back of the climate control there are two plugs so to do what we need to do are we running the wires between those two plugs as they both seem to have the some wires with the same colours one has a White plug and the other a Black plug. Or do we need just one of those (which one) and then join to the cluster .
Ok the White plug was the one which had both wire colours so we connected the ywo slave wires from there and connected to the instrument cluster and nothing happened, so we then did the continuity test as requested andgot 0hmns readings across all pins. One thing we did notice was when we unpluged the White plug ( with slave cables still attached ) the fan came on but the climate control display did not light up.
Continuity test ok with slave wires removed
Ok done all of that and as you said they registered open circuit ie no needle movement at all.
Everything on the car works (dont have parking aid or keyless start on car ) Just dont have any climate control or aircon working , nonne of the cluster dials work neither climate control or cluster display L.E.Ds light up and when i turn my lights on none of the displays or surrounds light up. Also my radio only works on the 1 HOUR cycle. Cruise control works but does not display on the screen as the screen just shows total milage from when the display packed up , with no other functions showing. Would it be easier for me to call you ?
Ok we did the Voltage readings accross pins 18 & 19 at the climate control and 22 and 23 at the cluster with ignition on and there was no readings. We also did the earthed wire onto pin 18 at the climate control with no result. We retested the dlc across pins 3 and 11 and got 26 ohmns and accross pins 6 and 14 and this time no ohmns registering at all. i will go and check fuse 44 this morning and get back to you soonest.
When we did the slave wires the other day the LED surrounding the whole cental console lit up which should come on when side/main lights are on so we turned the sides on and the surround went out and never came back on.
Hi Brian fuse 44 has no fuse in it and one of the tongues to hold it in is missing.
Hi Brian, sorry fpr the delay have been balistically busy at work. Anyway we found the problem it was one of the canbus wires had been caught during installation and eventually broke . it was inside the wireing loom behind the kicker plate on drivers side, the area where we first started the investigation, unfortunayely we pulled the wires in the oppersite direction from that point as from the outside the cable looked ok . Anyway thanks for all your help and will recommend yous service.
