Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Re: dimmer for dash flickering
« on: 07 April 2018, 22:18:22 »
The dimmer didn't work in my other estate and the instrument lights were permanently bright which never bothered me as such. but one day whilst switching on the lights a load of smoke poured out of the switch with the result that the lights wouldn't work again as there is some short direct to earth somewhere behind the dash. but I'm none the wiser as to where it may be and I resorted to connecting the instrument lights to another circuit (bodge). but it was the quickest time ever for me when it came to disconnecting the battery  :o.

Hi James,  Would the keys be for a saloon?(stupid question maybe) but there's two of them and a house key on a Vauxhall key ring. and yes they were in the arm rest. let me know your address and i'll post them to you.

I would have been round yours with the money double quick if I had won it as my current car needs a lot of work and I cant really justify spending the money or effort on it. and i'd rather buy one that has been looked after and had a new MOT put on it by someone who knows what they're doing than the usual cowboys I come up against.

Can someone give me a rough idea what it would cost to repair it?.

The way mines going it wont make it to 110,000.

My ABS TC lights and the speedo work and don't work whenever they feel like it. and the steering has moods on it when it gets really difficult to steer but after I leave it a while it normally comes back to normal..

And the tyres are none too clever either according to its recent MOT (the first for years apparently as tilbo has pointed out)

I think it should be 90% of the roads are in a bad way complete with speed humps to add insult to injury and the other 10% are ok.

The mileage on mine is coming up to 110,000  soon provided the speedo doesn't keep stopping and starting with the abs and traction control light.

General Car Chat / Re: Troublesome exhaust but full MOT!
« on: 16 March 2018, 22:20:57 »
Before I changed the exhaust on my car I phoned up the garage to save me the hassle of changing it to be met by the response that the bolts might be rusty and they didn't really want to do it. so with only the rear of the car on ramps I struggled to drill out the bolts with countless bits but after starting out ok they veered of centre so I gave up. and decided to replace the entire system which despite what people say IS a pig of job but I completed it and I wish I hadn't to be honest because the thing sounds really tinny, but never mind its done.
