Re: Door courtesy light

Very helpful thanks, I think the problem will either be in that connector or the cable area between the door and post where is is continually getting flexed, will see if I can disconnect the plug (got to find it first) then maybe I can get the cables out through the speaker hole and check them.

Re: More Gremlins

Done it today :shock: :shock: Wasn't as daunting as i thought ended up not using crimps, took photos made notes of matching wires and cut the wire from the plug a pair at a time, soldered them together and heat shrink before moving to the next pair. When done taped them all together in two bundles t...

Re: More Gremlins

Thanks for the advice yes just soldering and heat shrink was my other option got talked into the crimps anyway they're an option, also I have noticed there are some 2 into 1 cables hopefully they won't all part company with the connector while I'm handling them

Re: More Gremlins

Been looking at the problem again today and it looks like the corrosion starts where the cable enters the connector, called at my local breakers they had a same year vehicle in but a saloon not an estate I got the connector and good lengths of cable from it but looking at this alongside mine some ca...

Re: More Gremlins

On mine the blue connector in the photo has a bunch of cables going into one half but only 3 connections (cables and pins) in the other half these are the 2 beige cables and the one white (1 beige and 1 white have come adrift)

Re: More Gremlins

just had a look at the cables cant see 7010 on the big connector cables but it must be there the cables are tight together.

the cables into the blue connector are 1 beige cable marked 6349, 1 beige cable no marking, 1 white cable marked 8604

Re: More Gremlins

cutting the wired one at a time and soldering them and covering with heat shrink doesnt sound a bad idea it will remove the water ingress problem and I doubt very much that I will ever need to disconnect these junctions in the future. Will give that some thought, fortunately this is a third car in m...

Re: More Gremlins

Found the connections under the carpet the foam on the carpet is really wet Connections don't look too good and also 2 cables parted company with their metal end as I moved the connector to clean it I can't see how to re attach the cables to their metal end. Could this be my abs open circuit? I thin...
