right long story cut short, i am gernally a man into bodywork...........
but i purchased a unfinished astra van with z20let!
i did a deal with friend, i paint a car for him and he get the van running! anyway i did the car but he could not do the van cos it used to be desil so wiring looms were quite different!
so i got the van back bout 3weeks ago now! stumbled across a damaged cat b astra sri turbo, so bought it, stripped the whole lot and put everything into the van!
rear breaks and beam
all break pipes
all fuel pipes fuel tank
all interial loom
all engine loom and fuses,
power steering pump cos was one extra wire
accelerator pedal cos its different
fitted the engine and it runs now, so thats good!
now for me probs.......
when i fist had it running few days ago the fans were running pretty much all the time but not to worried bout that betta they run than dont,
last night i was trying to sort out wiring cos the rear lights are a mess, with key out of car and u put the hazzards on the ignition comes on??????
and if u turn ignition on then the break lights are on, but i dont actually have any break lights yet also?!?! or cant tell cos they stay on all the time, put idicator on at same time and all lights flash like xmas tree.......... it seems like an earth prob, i have taken all earths off and cleaned them but no difference!
abs and traction control light are on but think thats cos i am missing a plug off the abs unit at front.......
