Re: Dash cluster wiring differences

If you look a few threads down for ‘instrument cluster ribbon’ you will see details regarding the differences between early and late vans. You will need to re assign the wiring in the edge connector to suit your later dash. This is quite easy to do as the edge connector can be prised apart so that t...

Re: Voltage sensing split charge relay

Mine senses the Starter battery voltage and can be adjusted regards the trip point threshold voltage which activates the relay to allow the leisure battery to receive charge.     Mine is set to activate at 13.2v.  The relay has three connections , one to the Main battery, one to chassis and one to t...

Re: Oil pressure intermittent warning

Modules 42/43 are for the low coolant warning system.

There is relatively simple modification that reverts back to the earlier oil pressure warning fitted to pre 1987 vans.  This mod will have the warning led directly controlled by the oil pressure switch and dispenses/disables the buzzer circuit.

Re: Instrument cluster ribbon - why is contact 6 bridged to 4?

6 and 4 are linked (post 86 vans with horizontal connecter) and there is no particular reason why they are.

Re: Blue main beam tell tale not working.

There are two capacitors inside the clock,  some people have found that replacing them cures the problem.  Do a google search  and searcho on club 80 90 for 'T3 Analogue Clock capacitor repair'.  Look for a link to the samba website,  there is post that discusses repairand there is also a link to th...

Re: Blue main beam tell tale not working.

Regarding the clock,  you can test it on a 12v DC supply.    The capacitor can fail and there is only one.

Re: Oil pressure intermittent warning

Following this thread with interest! I had a new exhaust and oil pressure switch fitted yesterday - now I’m parked up on the Peak District trying to find an answer to the very same problem 🙄 The oil pressure switch you need to locate is in the region of the water pump and Pulley.    This is the swi...

Re: Odd relay problem

Its a stab in the dark regards the X contact load reduction relay but usually numbered 18.   It reduces the load from the battery during start up by switching off components but I think it also reduces current through the ignition switch.   You really need a passenger to 'feel' the relays when you h...

Re: Odd relay problem

In the event of low coolant,  module 43 (or 42 as there are two types) sends a series of pulses to the circuit inside the temp gauge, these pulses trigger the led and continue until the ignition is switched off.   If your temp gauge led is flashing  intermittently while you are driving it is unlikel...

Re: Odd relay problem

Modules 42 and 43 contain an electronic circuit that detects low coolant and triggers the LED. There are no  moving or mechanical parts inside.

Reverse gear?

I can select all gears and disengage smoothly except reverse which seems a little tight to get back into neutral.   No problem selecting reverse but needs a gentle tap to go back into neutral.   Is this more likely to be a linkage issue.   The van has done very few miles this year.

Re: I messed something up - Can't use Leisure battery.

Go with the 16A to start with unless you have any appliances or fittings that have high current demand.

Re: I messed something up - Can't use Leisure battery.

If you have not removed the front panel then it is unlikely that you have disturbed anything internally. The fuse is usually close the leisure battery and charge relay components but depends who fitted them. You need to check if you have a 12v feed at connection 8 (also check no 4) on the rear conne...

Re: I messed something up - Can't use Leisure battery.

Did you remove the Zig frontpanel or the entire zig unit? Sounds like the leisure battery feed has somehow become disconnected either at the rear connector block or to the on off switch or you may have blown the fuse which is probably close to the leisure battery.    The zig is outputting the charge...
