    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 172000

    Default electric problems

    guys since getting my vectra back on the road after a smash, shes been doing some wierd things. The stereo is scanning radio frequencies backwards on its own, set it to a particular station it will stay on it, but as soon as the car is turned of and back on again it either scans or goes to another station. Also if the fan is on when ignition is switched on after a few seconds the fan will go faster as though ive turned up the speed, and also the little light under the mirror comes on after a few minutes of the engin running.

    Any ideas guys, pre accident there was never any electrical issues.

    cheers

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Needs a new ambient temp sensor for the -5 thing.

    All I can suggest for the stereo is pull the fuse in the hope it resets its self and try again.

    But apart from that. Have you checked all the earth bonding points etc?
    Was it front or rear smash? Much damage?

    It was front, quite a lot of damage, bits replaced

    Bumper
    Ns wing and inner wing,
    Slam panel
    Cross member
    Subframe
    Rad pack
    Front gb mount
    Bonnet
    Headlights

    Any ideas what earth points to check? I have also noticed that the front lights and interior lights dim a little when turning the steering wheel.

    Cheers

    Have a go at doing the earth mod from the how 2 section.

    See if that helps
