Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Re: Breakdown
« on: 05 February 2021, 15:20:55 »
Just popped out in between the rain as I have a spare omega car thought it good to compare having just fully charged both batteries after checking before hand the battery had dropped to 11.14v before charging and 13v on other car. After charging volts have gone up to 16.19v and on starting up to 17.52 which then drops after a few minutes back to 16.4v and the battery light has come on,at least the car started without problem.Volts on the other car were 16.7 to 18.8 and not dropping back so it seems for some reason the alternator starts charging then stops.How easy difficult to swap over alternator as both 2.6 vehicles although problem one is Elite and the other Cdx.Don't know why the charged voltage is so high is that normal assuming my Fluke meter is still accurate

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Breakdown
« on: 03 February 2021, 13:00:09 »
Well the first time in 17 years I broke down and had to be recovered how annoying. Haven't been hardly anywhere in the car for sometime and been having a few niggling problems with interior light and front seat and to finish a breakdown maybe they're all related.Had a decent run in the morning for an eye test and got referred to hospital in the afternoon on the way back from the latter suddenly the battery light came on and lots of other warning lights soon followed and  a decrease in performance I was just hoping to make it home but alas a queue at road works stopped me.Emergency assist recovered me and very good they were by the way. Popped out this morning and checked battery volts 11.14 so now that's on charge as a first step and then we'll try and start it and I guess check volts at the battery to see if it's charging. Any other hints or tips because of course it could be the alternator would the ecu have any bearing with all the rain we've been having?

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Driver's seat
« on: 01 February 2021, 18:45:10 »
Well this damp winter is causing all manner of problems and the latest is the electric drivers seat is dead it was working just fine a couple of days ago but zero movement of any kind.The passenger seat is just fine so maybe it's a fuse or all connected to my interior light staying on. FRUSTRATING!!!!!!

Haven't yet had time to get out and fix this problem yet so as a temp workaround I'd like to remove the bulbs but haven't managed that simple task yet especially with my big fingers.Are they twist and fall out or push up and twist or pull not that any would seem that easy ?

It's a strange one and moisture could be a problem but perhaps the timer/relay as the foot lights go on/off normally.Having left the battery off all night it's fine again very difficult to find a fault like that.I could change all the door switches using my other car or the relay if I knew which one and where or just take the bulbs out strange there's no setting for permanently off

Well of course I could take the bulbs out but would be nice to test and sort out

Well some good news and bad,I reconnected the battery after being off for a day and the interior light was off and appears for the moment to be behaving.I'm sure it will reoccur again but for now ok i did hear a slight whining noise for 20 seconds or so but a little unsure what that was.Thanks for now and a safe new year to all members

The alarm went off and it would seem that the interior map light is not dimming and going off.It does go off when ignition is turned but back on again after and staying on so could be a timer fault or any other suggestions to overcome this problem would be most welcome.Is there a relay?
