Omega General Help / Drivers door unlocked but wouldn't open
« on: 24 December 2013, 15:41:19 »
Just spent and entertaining couple of hours hacking a hole in the drivers door card to get at the lock mechanism, the central locking worked fine but you couldn't open the door with either handles.

A search through the forum turned up this thread

Mine was in one piece and not as worn..

After breaking off the plastic cover over the lock I found a lever that operated on the four pointed cog just wasn't engaging properly, by the use of a screwdriver got the lever to engage and the lock came open...

Its a bit of a struggle getting in the passenger side and clambering over to the other side...

Anyone have the above. Had to cut a hole in mine to get at the lock mechanism..

Hi Guys

Got a lazy front door solenoid, anyone got a good replacement for sale ?

Parts number should be I think 90 493 702


Which bit is buggered, the display or radio ?

Any particular reason why they should be failing, is it an age thing.

You did originally pair the CID for me..

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / NCDC 2013 gone into 'Radio safe'

Hi Guys

My 2013 has recently started displaying 'Radio Safe' (with a beep) when in Sat Nav mode and Tuner mode. I have a CID.
The Satnav still works, its a pain to program as the radio safe comes up every 6 seconds.

When in the main screen its all ok. The steering wheels controls dont work either..

I searched the forum and found this thread
Which appears to be exactly the same as I'm having..

Was the reason ever resolved, and can it be fixed, does it require a 'chat' with a Tech 2 ?

You can see the rock start to fall 3 sec in...

I have fitted the mv6 seat so I can repair the Elite seat later.

Fault is exactly as described. Seat upside down, follow the heated seat loom from the back until it disapears under the side frame next to another loom that also leads to the same place into the heated seat control unit.

The conduit had been cut through along with the insulation to reveal bare copper touching the side frame. The bit if tape vx fitted to cover the edge had unfolded itself out flat to leave the metal bare, which then cut through the wire when the seat is occupied.

I have to say, I find it disgracefull a fault like this can cause the engine, and hence pas and brake assistance to cut out.

During my original fault finding I was surprised that fuse 15 supplied so many different things, when I think some of them (especially the heated seats) should be on there own fuse..

Mine burst when I was 10 and I still remember the finger and the rubber glove........... ::) ::) ::)

Glad you are ok now though..... :y :y

I had mine out in my early teens, the glove and lube were certainly a surprise to this innocent young teenager...

Nice pad you have there, Weds. :y

Incidentally, how much does a 1990 928 set you back these days? :y.

Not my place, unfortunately...

About 7.7K

In 1990 they were about 60K  :)
