Hey, I've just finished putting an eb 2 dash in my eb 1, I swapped my old non smartlock wiring loom and fuse panel into the new dash, but now for some reason everything works fine except when I turn the lights on my fuel pump kicks in regardless of key position, anyone come across this before? Any help is appreciated

I thought faulty earth as it was on with parkers, I ran a better earth cable as mine only had one going from battery to block, now has one to chassis, now they come on with low beams, could still be earth just confused the hell out of me

There is two plugs under the dash which are the same series... One plugs engine loom to body loom and other plugs engine loom to dash loom... It is possible to stuff and plug these the wrong way around... Check and make sure wire colours match on both sides of these plugs which are the same (white plugs, small pins, similar shape to diagnostic connector...)

Cheers,
Tim

Hey, checked wiring over the weekend, everything looks fine although there is two plugs disconnected one with just two pink and two blue wires and a little black plug with two green wires but I cannot find Any others that match. I found that it stops if I pull the fuse for the instrument cluster. Any ideas? Cheers, Dom
