    electrics on astra envoy van

    Hi All I have a very puzzling problem I could do with advise on. My intermitent wiper stopped working and since then I have got the following problems. my indicators wont work without either side lights on or main beam. the instrument lights flash on and off when side lights or main beam or on. the rear fog lights dont work and neither does the rear wiper.
    I have change all the relays (with genuine ones) changed the wiper stalk on steering column and checked all the fuses. I have even cleaned all the earth points. I am baffled please help. many thanks in advance Chris

    I have disconnected and reconnected every connection in sequence to try to eliminate the problem. Yesterday I even stripped all the hatch covers and disconnected the wiper motor, number plate lights rear light clusters and still problem there.

    All of these problems link back to the multitimer on the car which is built into the fuse box

    Hi All and thanks to those who have replied, I am sorry if I posted in the wrong place. I was totally baffled when I came into AOC and thats what happens to us who used to work on vehicles with enough room under the bonnet to put a chair in, eat your bacon butty and rest the coffee cup on the radiator top to keep it warm. I have been able to eliminate some of the problems by methodically going through things. However the rear fog lights not working, and the need to have the side lights on so I can use the indicators is still getting me down. WINDREW thanks for your offer and I would be greatful for any assistance. NEWIMAGECARHIFI thanks for your suggestion of the multitimer. I have removed this and found that it is a pug that is secured on the right hand side of my fuse box. There is no obvious connections from this that could cause the problem. The dreaded haynes manual is like looking at the wiring diagram of the trident nuclear missles guidance system EVERYTHING points to the multitimer. But nothing tells you what problems this little beauty can cause or how to fix it. many regards to all from me

    The only way to fix the multitimer would be to replace it. All the relays and fuses at the top need removing to slide it out

    Please excuse my ignorance, !!!Slide it out!!! I thought it was the black plug in on the right hand side of the fuse box. there is the row of black relays and the main yellow flasher relay on the top row. I cannot see anything that can be slid out. If I could work out how to post you a photo of my fuse box would you be able to advise me better. The Multitimer is something that has screamed at me throughout this from every schematic diagram in the manual. regards chris

    Yes it slides out

    The black plug is all the signals going to and from it and it tells the relays to open/close. Because the relays plug into it and some of the fuses these all need removing and then I believe there's a tab to turn or something, only ever had 1 out

    To post a pic you need to upload it on somewhere like photobucket then copy the [img] [/img] tabs to here
