few issues on my sd1

Post by itsallrovernow » Sun Sep 03, 2017 4:46 pm

Main beam not working on drivers side, bulb looks ok but how do I change it? Funny wiring which goes to bulb unit itself and I can't see how it disconnects?
Horn stopped working, fuse fine, New horns so is it horn relay?
Finally, washers stopped working , not fuse, has new motors so any ideas? It's a tp vitesse,
Cheers folks.

Push the bulb holder in and turn anti-clock.
No horn relay - and the same fuse does the interior lights.
Front and rear washers are on separate circuits.

I've re-drawn the SD1 wiring schematic showing the true colours of the wires - making it easier to follow. If you'd like a PDF of it, send me your email address.

Just to add a common problem with SD1s is dirty switches. But most can be cleaned easily. Same can apply to the many connectors.
