  1. Door card removed. Wiring in place to the scheme. Window winder motor mechanism looked good and functioning properly, a bonus “look see”. So decided to replace delay unit with new after all just in case which did not cure, bummer! Car has a retro iPod spliced into the Auxiliary unit alongside delay unit. My next thing to check, perhaps shorting the system some how? This is a pain!
  2. Right, time to update on my ‘story’ come adventure so far! Believe it or not I managed to lay in the drivers footwell with the seat in place and crank my neck around the steering column to see how the door/courtesy lamp plunger switch looked, nothing out of place (apart from spinal column). Carefully taped string to front of plunger and unscrewed collar from body. Pushed switch through dash hole and lowered from underneath and removed from string (used to guide back into position after testing). Connected the switch to simple lamp circuit, to determine any need to dismantle and repair as above. Pleased to say it passed this function test, sorry to say is not the switches fault? Reading the wiring diagram sht12, informs as mentioned earlier, is connected to the courtesy lamp via the delay unit. . I’m no electrical alchemist but looks like the switch is wired as an earth return back to the relay unit, ( door open maintains circuit to the relay and interior lamp, door closed circuit broken and door lamp goes out) I think? what I don’t get is with the switch and relay unit removed (individually not the same time), the door and courtesy lamps still stay on ( courtesy lamp in down position on the rocker)? Next episode will be titled, ‘door card off’ to checked what’s underneath and how the lamps earth is being supplied to stay on all the time? Ahh, great days.
  3. What a legend, I’m so grateful. Thank you and going to get on it. 🏎
  4. Cheers Dude, I’ll crack it. Appreciated
  5. If I put a bulb in the holder and close the door it just stays on, no matter how long I wait. If I put the ceiling light on in farthest up and farthest down “on” position and then push in the door jam the button and wait, both stay on. So I don’t drain the battery I have to leave ceiling light in the middle “off” position and doors bulbs out. Ive no idea what my ceiling lamp positions are supposed to be and if correct and seems the door jam button isn’t shutting the current off, ,so perhaps this is the fault? thanks for suggestion, I’ll keep tinkering till it’s fixed.
  6. New lamps installed, great they work. Closed door won’t shut off? Explains why removed, found yellow lamp delay by Pektron, opened it and looks fine? Replaced and want to know if; 1) can you test them? 2) exist anywhere on earth to buy? else will try to find Lucas alternative 33388, Thank you
  7. Ahh, some bugger whipped the bulbs out! , why I wonder?? I’ll fit new ones and wait for the battery to drain I guess.
  8. Appreciate good advice, sometimes my enthusiasm out strips reality! Hi Steve, would you mind quoting me the cost of new rear carpet please? thank you, Adam?

  10. Gents, Just curious do you sell theses to strangers and how much is a new rear set complete with a battery board? Do the panels come with the same edging trim I’ve got on mine? Are they difficult to make and need any specialist tool, sewing machine I guess for a starter ? I’m thinking of having ago, but no idea where to get the material or boards are either. Any help Is much appreciated, thx Adam
  11. I have the same problem, door lights don’t work. Glad someone asked the question for me.
  12. Seems we have a common interest brother?




  13. Me to, any feed-back or news? Must be something out there?
