  1. Hopefully a very simple question requiring a simple answer Noticed that the rear left (kerbside) brake light wasn't operating so changed the bulb but that didn't help. Both bulbs (the one I removed and the replacement) are ok. Indicators are operational. Fuses seem ok (??) Where to go next I wonder. Any thoughts ???
  2. Looking for a little advice if anybody has some. My 1997 Golf 2.0 GL (ABA) has been having starter issues that seem to be of an electrical nature. The car has a new starter (only a few months old) and a new battery (a few weeks old). When I turn the ignition, the car slowly turns over once and then nothing. All the dash lights come on. Also, not on every attempt but on some, the power seems to completely cut out. The clock will reset to 12:00 and the alarm acts as if it thinks the battery wires were detached/re-attached and goes off. I am planning to change the battery wires (I had some awfully deteriorated spark plug wires a few years ago), but I wouldn't be surprised if it is a different issue. Does somebody else has an idea what might be at fault?
  3. Can anyone help me with this problem? Vehicle stalls when at operating temperature and reverse is selected or when turning left. Vehicle has covered 250,000Km is a 1994 3L. V6 Nissan Maxima sedan unleaded petrol / LPG Venturi system, normally runs sweetly. The car is poorly maintained, largely by myself as I tend to drive it until it stops, then make minimal tweaks and adjustments to get it running OK, repair parts or use second hand were possible. The car is normally run on LPG but the fault also occurs on petrol, currently the petrol injectors are crook and the front engine mount is shot. I feel intimidated by the complex engine management system and am at a loss as to target troubleshooting the current problem. A mechanic has tried a scanner on the electrics, replaced a faulty ignition lead, adjusted the mixture without identification of the problem.
