Electrical problem in Daihatsu copen

Has anyone had electrical problems beside the normal flat battery?
I tried to start it, and it was semi flat, but when it did start, all warning lights, like battery, hand brake , air bag etc, stayed on. Speedo and fuel gage didnt work etc, and it then travelled for about 30 meters, then stalled. Does that sound like something to do with the computer etc?

Dwayne, did changing the battery help, we're coping with the same problem. After a couple of days the Copen won't start. We still have the original battery, I have serviced it, cleaned the heads and topped up the cells. I'm not sure if it's gonna help. If the battery is the problem, then I'll change it as well.

Ok so looks like this one has been solved by the dealer.
I had it towed to them, and they said the battery had to be replaced (only had 8vlt in it)
and something to do with the cell inside the battery had failled. No surprise here - its the same battery which came with the car - 5 years or so ago.
They are still working on it, so wont know if its anything else. Battery's in Australia arent cheap
for this car - 125 dollars, and neither are most parts. But then i use the car for business, and drive everywhere. The car was used everyday, but i suspect it went flat, as most copen owners would know, seems to go flat if you dont use the car for some period of time, like 1 week or so,'

My wife's ungo remote start in her 2001 ford windstar is not starting the engine and van has been showing random electrical problems. Any ideas anyone?

did u replace batteries? if so did u install them correctly

random electrical problem could be a bad ground wire. remove - negative battery cable (usually the black one) clean connection make sure both ends are clean & tight. A loose or dirty ground will cause problems. while ur at it check all connections u can for loose or dirty connections

Will not start. Engine does not turn over no electrical system working - tried to jump battery no change?

First , check the LED on your car battery, if it is blank you made need to remove and test the actual battery. If there is ANY chance that sparks flew when attempting to boost the car open the fuse box and check the fuses including the large ones.
Third, try a different key, including your flat wallet key in case your key has also failed due to a weak internal battery and will not communicate with the engine immobilizer.
To use your 'wallet key" hold the black card against the dash beside the key slot while turning the key in its slot. This key has an embedded security chip in it as well to allow the engine to start.
If your RX is a 2010, hold the wallet key or your black key fob to the dash beside the ignition button and wait for the LED on dash to turn green. Then push the button.

Post back to advise how you make out.

Change the oil filter of a daihatsu copen

unless there is something unusual about it... the filter unscrews and you install a new one. you should put a drop of oil on your finger and rub it around the filter gasket before you screw it back on the motor. often you will need an oil filter wrench, abit of a misnomer as it is basically a band that goes around the oil filter with a handle. the newer style is a large socket piece that fits over the end of the oil filter and you turn with a rachet.

2000 Buick Lesabre. I parked the car about 6 months ago because I bought a newer car. When I tried to start again the starter gets no power. There is an odd electrical problem because things like the vent...

The immobilizer has come on you need to diss arm it or bypass it.This some times happens when the battery is left flat for long periods of time.

Daihatsu charade randomly stalling

If its the 3 cylinder I would say your points need changing/adjusting. Make sure you have grease on the lobes where the rubbing block makes contact or the rubbing block will wear rapidly and cause the gap to close. The gap between the flat and the rubbing block should be about the thickness of an hacksaw blade. The points thesleves should not have any spikey protrusions (caused by arcing).

The small metal box with vacuum hoses attached is the hot idle compensator. It's not electrical and the soot is probably just some oil that has powdered form coming in contact with petrol fumes.
