Re: Mysterious non start problem

What I just can't fathom is why a jump from a running vehicle works and a jump from a jumper box designed to start cars or a monster of a 900 CCA truck battery do not even cause the starter to move or the solenoid to click. Baffling. What could be the difference? Electricity is electricity. In all ...

Re: Thoughts on a potential change...

My first question would be...................has the site been maintained cost wise by donations over the years ? If no then you might want to look at an entry fee. If yes, why change ?

Re: Auxiliary fan resistor

Jay it won't make any difference running the fan in hi speed only. Perhaps noisier if anything. If you're in doubt regarding wire sizing, just go with the 10 AWG.

Re: Driveline upgrade M635csi

Nice Gaz ! I prefer the 3.07 behind my dogleg and S38B36 as she has plenty low down torque and very quick top end :) Looking to also correct rear camber since the suspension upgrades, just need to sort out how best to do it.

Re: location of ABS fuse M635

Are your rear brake lights working ? If so, the fuse is good so most likely not a fuse. The ABS hydraulic unit and control unit are not fused. Is the ABS function working ? Wasn't there a whole thread on BC about ABS ?

Re: Distributor Cap HT lead positions

Those resistances look fine. Remember though that your ignition system is high voltage, so using a mere multi meter may not show up insulation breakdown. If in doubt, replace them.

Check valves are on all windscreen washing systems. Otherwise the water would drain back out of the tubing to the reservoir.

Re: 1985 635CSi - Crank, no start problem

The OBC can be coded with a number you enter as a security feature. You enter the number which drives the OBC relay closed to operate the main relay. The relay box is just a relay box.

No worries ! Just throwing this out there; Are you sure the OBC and relay unit is not just doing its job ? That is, is it coded off ?

Re: Trans. fluid leak

Was the new seal an OEM or OE item ? Are you sure the installation was done correctly ? No aspersions, just that it's easy to stuff up this job. (Ask me how).

Edit. Sorry was this gearbox or diff ? I was referring to diff. If gearbox ignore me :)

Re: auto/5sp swap final drive ratio recomendation

Depends on your driving requirements and vehicle specs. As I have 265/5 dog leg and S38B36 , and love highway/country driving, I chose to stay with the OEM 3.07. Loooooong legs ;)

Re: What are these connectors for

The black plug with green wire will be an ignition switch start/run feed. This goes to numerous things like fuse box (for power distribution), OBC, charging system indicator, ABS system, and power windows. If everything mentioned is working on the car I wouldn't be too worried about the plugs.

Re: What are these connectors for

The white connector will be lighting of some kind. Can't quite make out the other wire on the white connector. If it is grey red then that white plug is lights. Things like all the dash lights, cigar lighter light, visor light, light switch lights, fog light switch lights, hazard switch lights, OBC ...
