  1. Hi Terry, No, I did not solve this problem yet. I double checked and cleaned all the ground connections, but did not unplug/plug the connectors inside the binnacle. I will try this and let know. Realy looking forward to go into the footwell upside down.....not..... Rowald
  2. Hey CarBuff, Thanks for your swift reply! I checked the voltage at the battery: When engine off: 11,6 V with lights off and 11,5 V with lights on; When engine running: 13,8 V with lights off and 13,7 V with lights on. I didn't find any black goo on the compressor, the alternator and regulator looks clean and dry. So...any other place where to look? PS: There is only a small sea between France and England; maybe that's why they both built fabulous cars........ Rowald
  3. Hi, I'm the proud owner of an Esprit SE , LHD, chargecooled, in the Netherlands. The car drives fine, everything works okay, but one minor issue. Once I switch on lights, vents, whiper, or horn, all the readings from the dahboard gauges change. FY,temperature goes from 80 to 100, battery power from 13 to 11, oil pressure reading goes up etc. It seems like there is a poor earth connection to the dash, but where to look for it? Anyone familiar with this issue? Thanks a lot, Rowald Pouderoyen
