    Default watchdog

    I watched Watchdog last night and there was a mini that had a fuse for the alternator (it was a piece about cowboy mechanics) why doesnt the Veccys have fuses?

    The alternator is hard-wired in on the Veccy's. Don't even think there's a relay for it either

    Most cars don't (don't know why) but I used to have a Lada which had a fuse on the voltage regulator on the back of the alternator, when it blew the voltage out of the alternator would vary with the engine revs giving numerous/various faults.
    interesting time trying to diagnose that fault!!!
