Electric problem

Postby princess090967 » Wed Aug 07, 2019 9:08 pm

Hi at all. I have a small problem. Infact, after changing wiring loom injection light stays on when the car is moving and the engine and the car is not idling. Someone can suggest what's the problem? I think I made a mistake when I reattached the wires.
Many thanks, Max

Maybe first check for a loose fan belt or dynamo connections.

Does it have a dynamo or an alternator?

Do all the other warning and panel lights work coirrectly? Does everythig else function as it should? Have you changed the earth? Do you have a multimeter to check voltage? If yes, then check voltage at battery with fast idle.

Well I take it you mean 'Ignition' Light, not Injection... :lol:

If the fan belt is OK, and nothing else is misbehaving, the chances are that either it's all connected correctly but one of the crimps on the new loom isn't a good contact, or you've cross connected something.

First step, get the diagram and methodically check each connection one at a time between the Dynamo and the Regulator. It could be something as daft as a crimp where the person making it up didn't strip the cable correctly/sufficiently before putting the crimp on .
