Blitzkreig at the Führerbünker

Need a spark. All those tedious electrics, lights, tacho, wiring harness, etc

Blitzkreig at the Führerbünker

Postby Camel » Fri Nov 14, 2008 9:13 am

It was time to cure Ray's wiring problems once and for all. Well Ray's Barracuda's wiring problems that is.

So it was down to the 'bünker for the 'Cuda and out with the multimeter and 'probe'.

Ray had done an admirable job extending the wiring with an awful lot of numbered cables. I must admit that when I first saw it I didn't realise they were numbered and started to get a migraine.

So by working through three different wiring diagrams (until we got the right one - geez wasn't that fun!) we finally found the problem and had the Cuda running again. But it was still light outside so we just thought we'd just wire up the instrument cluster.

Got it working too. BUT! Bloody fuel warning light stayed on didn't it! So (this is where Ray finds out The Truth) I started by taking the cluster apart and inspecting the circuit board, and then, dear Reader, I confess, it was late, so rather than come up with some technical solution I came up with a practical one. I slipped a piece of cardboard between the LED and gauge face! Voila! Can't see that pesky light now!

F1? Nah, mate, that's FI as in Fuel Injection.

That's just telling you that you've got a fuel injection problem and that you need to use a 'Master switch' to access the fault codes from which you then check against a long list of said codes to discover that you've run out of fuel!

It's probably bitching about the cardboard covering the Fuel LED!

Seriously now. I've got the codes and switch here.

Bugger that it didn't come up the other night when we had it running here. Bloody inconvenient!

HEY!

where the hell where you Jet?

I didn't go to Northam because of YOU.

Ray, blame Phil.

I doubt if it's those injector filters, probably your missing PAIR valve. No, hang on, yours is the '99 model, it had a pneumatice PAIR valve. Could be something else........

I'll post up details on the switch and codes (I feel a 'sticky' coming on). :oops:

If you keep repeating it, then according to others with the same dellus-um... idea (and of course 'US politics'), it becomes true....

I'm gonna ignore Trygen, (bitch).

Ray, I realised (while fabbing some really spanky retainers for the K8) that it's only the missing fuel sender unit that's causing the FI light to come on. If it was any more serious the engine wouldn't start.

You know the old saying: "A man's not a camel".....

Apparently the reverse applies too....

Sorry Camelsy-ing (is that like mulesing?) but it's sooo catty, I can't work out who's catcher and who's pitcher?


Ray, that was not personal, it just reminded me of someone else.....

Just got an email from the missus, a large tree has fallen over next to the Führerbünker!

She wasn't sure if it was 'next to' or 'nearly missed'.

Bugger.
