Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Cooling fans
« on: 21 February 2010, 16:01:03 »
There are two fans at the front of the engine and one at the back. Is the back one for the condenser? And when does it kick in?

Nice one  :y What I did was to remove the igintion barrel with the key in it every time I parked up. I carried a small allen key with me. This was until I got a new ignition barrel.

Heres the link http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1213353737

But you can only carry out this procedure with the key moving freely in the ignition barrel. So remove the cowels and then fiddle the key in the barrel, hopefully it will eventually turn. At that stage remove the key and the barrel when exiting the car until you get a replacement.

Sounds like you might need a new ignition barrel. There is a guide on how to remove it, fairly straightforward. You can still secure the car with the barrel removed. A new one costs around 70 based on your vin number, next day.

Rusty - I've had a couple of batteries go, but at neither stage did the light begin to come on.

Spoke to the Service Agent again today and he said they couldn't find a leak. He also said that they have put some tracer into the system and do drive around for a month or so and see if it does leak.

But the worrying part is that he stated if the condenser has indeed failed they cannot change it. Is it really that hard to do? and whereabouts is it located?

Thanks Tunnie - I've handed it in this morning so I'll await the verdict. Hopefully with the cooler weather they (dealer) wont be swamped with A/C repairs. ;D

My money is on the condensor failed, mine was replaced shortly after i got it in 2006, amazed how bad it was, it was leaking like a good-un, could see huge patches of the dye they used.

Because its hidden by the main rad and cooling fans, its hard to see if it leaks. More of a problem on the 4 pots, as they only have a single cooling fan so its open to the elements a bit more. V6 has two cooling fans so its protected more.

Tunnie - guess what: you might be spot on. I just spoke to the dealer and he reckons it looks like it's the condenser. They are going to check it again and I'll find out in the morning.

I think the compressor is ok, you can usually feel it kicking in plus the fuel consumption increases slightly. Had a lot of the pipework replaced recently and the expansion valve. So I'm ready to shell another few thousand Riyals (two - three hundred quid to fix this new problem.  :'( :'(

The panel works, but the a/c has been on the way out. I think it's a coincedence though since the a/c has got less and less cooler and now warm over last couple of weeks. It blows out hot air fine though and the fan speed adjusts with the temperature control. I am suspecting a leak in the a/c but just thought I'd check that the panels are interchangeable.

On the facelift, are the climate control panels interchangeable? I changed mine over so should it function normally?

Drive up about 20' from wall with headlights on. Get a fat/heavy mate to sit on bonnet, then site in boot. Headlight aim should be in same place on wall.

Thanks for that. Will I need new shock absorbers after carrying out this procedure?  ;D

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / self levelling action on xenons
« on: 17 December 2009, 16:04:24 »
How can you tell the self levelling action is working on your xenon lights. My HID adjuster arm had come loose and was resting on the wishbone. It has since been reattached and there are no warnings on the info display. I'm assuming therefore everything is OK, but is there a test you can do to make sure the lights are actually undertaking the self levelling action.

Thanks.
