General Car Chat / do we have any jetronic LE2 experts please ?
« on: 03 November 2023, 18:06:31 »
hi. all .the jetronic efi system fitted to many 1983-1986 vauxhalls such as senators and carlton 2.2's have a variable idle air valve controlled by its own seperate ecu.these ecu's often fail and cause issues. looking inside them pretty much reveals nothing of note to suspect and close examination of solder joints and replacing capacitors doesnt solve anything.
swapping the ecu with a known working one makes everything ok again
do we have any experts on these ( or a known link to any sites that do ?)
ecu repair facilities dont reply (obviously as they want the work !)

General Discussion Area / blaupunkt san diego dj
« on: 27 February 2023, 11:46:44 »
hi.a question to any car radio engineers please.i hope someone can help.
 i have a blaupunkt san diego dj head unit (radio,cassette).this is the type that has various other connotations such as milano rcr127,st malo rcm127,etc .fitted with the 8638308752 pcb from circa mid/late 90's. ? the one with the removable front,4x35w ,2 egg shaped 4 button controls to the left.
hope that has identified the unit !
i have a few of these in various cars and am having an issue with one of them.
radio crystal clear,remote cd changer perfect .all 4 amp channels perfect.
issue is with very distorted (gritty sounding) cassette  on both channels.    i have exchanged cassette decks from other unit. problem not on deck.
i have also swapped the 8 pin op amp in the top right corner of the board. voltage to this chip vcc is same on both units 8.54v.. also virtually all the electrolytics.  still the problem remains.

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / 2,6 cluster / pcb
« on: 21 March 2022, 12:40:03 »
would anyone have a good working instrument cluster or just the circuit board preferably from a 2.6 saloon auto please. many thanks.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / instrument supply
« on: 15 March 2022, 18:07:10 »
just to confirm. if fuse 15 is ok and everything on the car works fine but i have no fuel,temp guage,no tach and no speedo then this points to a bad rear cluster plug or faulty cluster itself.
also i have a spare 2.2 cluster.will this fit and work just for elimination purposes ( into a 2.6) or is it different in any major ways.
many thanks.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / strange goings on !
« on: 05 December 2020, 18:10:56 »
hi to all. my omega 2.6cdx 2003 has just begun acting wierd!
car drives fine,no warning lights,all seems fine except :
noticed yesterday that "lights on " warning buzzer was sounding albeit much quieter with key in but stops when ignition on or with key removed.also sounding with no key in if i put parking lights on ( again quieter thou)
today after further investigation found out that the interior light is staying on once you open the door or operate it from the light switch and wont go out unless you turn ignition on.
all is fine with engine running,map lights work ok and interior light will turn on and off with light switch if needed.
interior light still wont go off if warning buzzer is unplugged
warning buzzer still sounds quieter if interior light is unplugged.
warning buzzer works as normal if key is left in and door is opened and also if you leave lights on and open it should.
car will lock and unlock with fob as normal but no red light on facia ( side of radio) and no deadlocking happenning.
all door lights are working normally and each door switch has been removed and checked .all double contact type with circuit to earth when released and clear to earth and each other when pressed.
removed fuse 12 marked as courtesy light and the other marked as courtesy light 23 i think ( as in manual)but courtesy light stays on even with fuses out.
has anyone any other likely suspects ?
