Hi again. I have NF Fairy V8 that I am having so elec issues with
1. Dodgy relay in left indicator
2. Interior lights work most of the time but every now n again when open front door/s lights do not come on
3. Slight power draw occasionally upon start
4. Climate control occasionally does not power up but OFF icon is illuminated when it is actually off so there is power there of some description
5. Sometimes central locking goes nuts can hear doors locking unlocking rapidly
Relay is ALWAYS dodgy I know I need to replace ( rapid indicator flash) but is there any way that all these probs could b related?
These Qs may sound silly but this is first car I have owned that run sooo many electrics.
Any help is appreciated

1. Check to see which bulb has blown on the left indicator. Replace. Issue fixed
2. Sticky door sensor. Not uncommon.
3. Determined how?
4. Not sure.
5. Make sure all doors are shut properly.

1. No bulb blown on indicator it's def relay issue as indicator works but flashes insanely.
3. Never mind just worked that one out
5. Doors are shut when locking goes nuts.
I think at this point it could be gremlins that need to be escorted out. Just spoke to previous owner between posts here he said he quite often left doors ajar in his car port ??? :?
Car was kind of un used for a bit except when he had a couple drinks or burn out time as he called it...
:evil:

1. If you have the flat 7 pin trailer plug the contacts on the cover have to touch the sockets in the plug.
