Omega Electrical and Audio Help / NCDC Mute Issues
« on: 24 September 2018, 12:14:24 »
Thought it might be better starting this as a new post incase it becomes easier for any other members having similar issues or want to try and resolve fault with NCDC 2013/5 phone muting problems.

TB kindly swopped over codes  for my  fault nav unit in NCDC 2013 and repaired the original CID back to the working Headunit.All good and everything worked as it should however my Parrot CK3100 when used wouldn't mute the speakers and whilst the phone and Parrot screen all worked it wouldn't allow original use of the phone.This had worked on the original NCDC before the swop so it has been suggested a rare fault occurs within the NCDC,where it wont mute the speakers down, and a possible fix is to replace the back board within the top part of the 2013 .

I have stripped down the original faulty NCDC by removing the nav disc mech and am now slightly confused as to what actually is the "back board".I am assuming it is the smaller of the circuit boards which has the multipug connection with the red 10amp fuse fitted but before I delve further I would just like some confirmation this is correct.It would seem to be secured by a screw at the side of the casing and another in the back,so would it then just pull out of its fixing and the small ribbon cable with the red joiner come apart, or is there any other thing I need to be aware of .

Hope this may assist others and possibly TB or VXL offer their words of wisdom on this please.

Omega General Help / Radiator Thermo Switches
« on: 24 July 2018, 21:22:53 »
After a productive afternoon with the coolant pressure tester I have now managed to trace the coolant leak which I thought was originally the aux electric pump..but now is certainly the plastic edge of the radiator at the bottom.

Question I have is when the new rad is fitted is it necessary to replace any seals on both the 2 thermos switches,as cant see any point in replacing either as fans etc work fine..its just rad that has worn .

Can I re-anneal the copper washers assuming that's how they are sealed or should seals be replaced...if so where can these be sourced

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Here We Go Again.

Fitted new heater blower hedgehog weekend before last and fan and climate has worked faultlessly since then.

On way home from work today blower started making noise like something had got caught in vent like you get with a leaf or similar,but blower was working all speeds .

Pulled onto driveway and as turned radio off couldn't hear fan motor running.Further investigation  back to square 1 from 2 weeks ago.

Fan will not function on any setting now and when tried to increase fan speed on cc panel tell tale indicator increases as if fan is running but then after a few seconds dissapears as before.

Could a brand new hedgehog of failed so quickly? motor now jamming and causing short somewhere as all fuses intact .

Any ideas guys  :o

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Interior Cabin Blower
« on: 06 June 2018, 13:18:21 »
Strange problem and could do with some help please.

Drove to work this morning approx. 30miles..A/C working fine and nice gentle cool air from blowers.

Parked up in direct sunlight for around 2 back into car started fine but felt warmer than temp at 20c climate panel was showing.Pressed blower to increase speed but no improvement.Turned climate down to increase cooling but still no improvement and no blower.

Checked A/C and clutch engaging and when moving there was a definite cool air movement but blower wouldn't work on ant temp setting nor manually adjusting with either eco on or off.

Have checked all fuses under steering wheel as seems several are labelled cooling fan but non are blown and everything else electrical seems to work.

Would of expected if motor failed fuse to of blown so now struggling to thing what else could be the issue.Assume there is a relay in the circuit...any idea which/colour and where .

Any help appreciated  :y 

Omega General Help / AC Pipes

Omega General Help / Cam Cover Bolt Seals
« on: 08 April 2018, 12:36:19 »
Last year I replaced both cam cover seals and O rings as existing had started weeping and expect they were originals.

Since then all has been spotlessly dry of oil until I noticed last week the back top bolt head on the passenger side cover had traces of oil appearing around the edges and starting to mist onto the black cover.My assumption is either the O ring has let go or maybe it got displaced when I fitted them last year but would of expected to see oil before now.They were all torqued correctly to 8nm and genuine parts were used.

My plan is to remove the bolt completly...clean away the oil from the cover and refit the bolt with a rubber washer in between the cover top and the bolt/washer as I think it is over kill removing the oil tight cover completly along with the cost of a new cam gasket/8 O rings and the potential for it to possibly happen again.

Breathers are clean and all else seems fine so just wanted to run the above by for comments or if anybody has had this happen before and resolved in a similar way

Omega General Help / Oil Pressure Switch
« on: 19 November 2017, 09:09:37 »
Reading several recent posts re leaks around or by the oil pressure switch think this might be the reason why I also have traces of fresh oil on the top face of the sump directly below the alternator .

As oil doesn't seem to track much beyond the front edge of that area I am suspicious that the oil pressure switch may be my issues.

What is involved in removing and replacing it and is the switch the same across the range .

Thanks :y

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / NCDC 2013 nav issues
« on: 08 November 2017, 15:22:46 »
Bit of advise required please guys.

Nav unit has always been temperamental since I first acquired it with paired screen some years ago.

As the disc would get ejected with message advising dirty and couldn't be read ,I went down the route of getting a new laser from Gerbers in Germany.Whilst I rarely ever used the nav system
