I have a Gregory's manual but that is not a whole lot of help to you. Are you able to get access to one of those? Sometimes the library might have them if not I got mine from supercrap for $40 or so.



The libary hmmm didn't think of that, it is a pity money is rare for me atm or I would be owning a manual and not bothering complaining about not having one.

Our local libraries can order them in to at times. Then just photo copy the lot! Done that before

I unplugged the rear doors both left and right, put the fuse in again and it started to short so i pulled it out before it blew... I was going to remove the passengers side loom but it started to rain.

I have unplugged the drivers side earlier in the week and it blew so I assume it isn't the right front & rear doors. so If it blows when i remove the left front door loom it must be something else... and this means i will have to take it to the auto electricry

Today I unplugged the door loom on the passengers side (all looms bar the drivers were unplugged) and fuse blew. And as I did this proir with the drivers door thus all door looms have been unplugged.

I rang a local sparky and he found it wierd, and said to look at it will cost me 50 to 100 dollars hmmm.

That eliminates the doors as the issue then. I'd keep working your way and disconnect anything that has anything to do with the central locking.

Apart from the door looms, there is the switch on the dash and the BCM. Maybe a faulty BCM? I just had a look at my manual an there doesn't appear to be anything else on the central locking circuit.



Yeah i went to the libary and the central locking is on it's own circuit, the problem is, is the god damn rain, (tempted to move to darwin :P)

Well I unplugged and removed the BCM and SAP!!!! still blew..

Any ideas? Unless it is a direct short start to the body or something.

could a circuit with-out a gound blow fuses?

To recap..

All doors have been unplugged from main loom near doors.

Boot loom unplugged,

BCM unplugged.

Hmmm NO IDEA.

check the wiring chart----all those plugs are off,whats left\not much----wires may be rubbed or damp.look for a short-burnt wiring.

I did find that the sound deadner on the sill is midly damp and that up near the area behind the fuses are "cold" doesn't feel damp just cold,

I have pulled the centre fascia out the cluster the fuse box holder, hmmm

I have unplugged the cluster, a few looms removed the center facsia, removed BEM.

I got my fat a** put my head up and looked around and couldn't see no bare wires or loose items etc. I have look at the wire diagram for the central locking and I have up plugged all things.

I will have to go back to the libary and look at the manual again. I will give my self til monday to sort it out or i will bite the bullet and take it to the auto elec.

I must scream it to the world, my excitement from the top of someplace very high. :twisted:

I fixed it, I fixed it, *jumps round room like a little kid...

I put the car back together, I unplugged the towbar loom and the boot loom remains unplugged and the boot and fuel release switches and unlock/lock dash button...

So one of them are the problem..

Also..... My multimeter is f**k :roll: you can move it side to side on various settings and it displays something.

Thanks Hans for your imput, so far so good..

Geoff.
