My local dealer is convinced it's the old corroded resister issue at the bottom of the fan motor. I lost these functions after driving through a big rainstorm so he might be right. However, he wants like 1200 to do the job. I know the front clam has to come off, I did this job myself about 18 months ago. I'm tempted to do it again, and eliminate the fand speeds by just connecting the wires and bypassing rthe various transisters. I wish there was an easier way to access this stuff.
If all that work is done and nothing is fixed, it will mean a new SPM and a very cranky Jerry haha.
Hmm, since the lighting is also out, makes me think it is not a problem with the resistor. You have a multimeter? It's time to start testing/probing wires.
On a separate note, when I did the resistor pack in my car I did the DIY fix and mounted the resistors under the drivers side access panel for easy access for future fixes. That way the clam wouldn't have to come off!
My headlights work but not the lights for recirculating air or A/C (the little center lights by the fan switch). Dealer says those lights only work if the fans are working. I don't remember that being the case previously.
And thanks Michael. I will look at that link. I do not wosh to take off the clam again, it was a PITA.
Michael is a godsend. I never even knew about the 4 fuses under the dash. I've only a federal Elise longer anyone on this board without exception (1st day delivery in 2004), and this set of fuses totally missed me. Anyway, talking to Michael (SirLotus) last night had me wondering, and yes! The C1 fuse was blown. Everything is working great now, and I don't have to pull the clam or cut a wall...for now! Thanks so much!!!
The fob sets the alarm, but will not lock the doors. With the alarm off, car starts fine. where should I start looking. The online service manual does not mention it. Reading forum threads, talk alot about bad relays. Early USA model 05 Elise, where do I find these relays or control module...
I just completed my LED tail light replacement project today. It came out better than I expected! I posted a video on YouTube. I needed all new tail lights for the Silver 05' Elise I am working on so I worked this as an option to OEM. I like them so much I put a set in my Chrome Orange 05'...
Howdy, didnt see a thread on this so thought Id post one. Thinking of putting a battery disconnect in my Elise. Would like to see what others have done as far as type, mounting, etc.
So if you have one.... Post a pic!
Hi There, I’m new here but just reading a few threads I’ve been helped immensely.
I am posting this thread to explain to peoplewhy the guage/instrument cluster is cutting out. (Most times)
Recently I had my Elise at the dealership & they couldn’t find the fault, I was lucky enough to be put...
