Question about Cars & Trucks

LDV Maxus SWB van fog lights failed~ no voltage at lamps, remove dash check out going side of switch~ok, operate switch, can hear relay deep in the dash somewhere clicking.

Light switch~ pos. zero to side lts ~ can hear different relay click and can feel it is the left relay of two in the fuse & relay block under right-hand pocket in dash below right vent. Light sw pos. side to head light ~ no relay click but head lights work in dip & main beam. Swap the two relays in relay/fuse block ~ lights switch, side to main relay clicks and fog lights work!! replace dash and switches...fog lts fail to work~ jiggle fuse block, remove dash and switches again swap relays back and forth.......nothing!! Is this the head light relay/it's base connection...a familiar problem? I'm obviously fairly close just hate not knowing for sure what to look at, any advise very welcome, many thanks in advance. John

    check contact on relay has a constant 12v to be switched by the relay contacts to the fog light

  • John Cheney Jan 03, 2017

    Relay is in ETACS unit flipped cover off relay all apparently ok and has 12v on contacts but fogs still not working. Any thoughts?

    are you getting voltage at the fog light end of the wiring when you switch on the fog light switch. Also fog lights may require headlights to be on for fog lights to work.

  • John Cheney Jan 10, 2017

    Checked the relays using a 9v battery (PP3)all ok also checked continuity of n/c & n/o relay contacts ~ ok. found driver for relays defective. jumped a wire from relay output to fog lt sw got van past MOT, wayhey!! now will remove unit and send for repair.
    Thank you for your comments.
    All the best for 2017
    John

  • John Cheney Jan 10, 2017

    ps.... there are 2 relay units on the ETACS board and 2 x relays in each unit (4 in total) if looking at the board with the relays on the left, the relay in the unit closest to the edge of the board and nearest to the multi pin connector strip is for the intermittent delay of the wipers, the 2nd in the same unit does the fog lights and the other 2 x relays of the inboard unit both switch together when the fog lts are sw'd on.
    I hope this info helps someone else.

I have a 94 Chevy Astro van with factory fog lights I need to know where the power comes from on a 30 size of the relay or the fog lights thank you


For the load side of relay, comes from fog lamp fuse. Voltage for control side of relay comes from fog lamp switch which gets voltage from headlamp switch.

Can't get power to foglights on my 2003 Explorer


Power is applied to the fog lamp switch which is a separately controlled part of the main light switch. When the fog lamp switch is turned on, power is applied to the fog lamp relay in the battery junction box which closes to turn on the fog lamps IF 20A FUSE 19 and 15A FUSE 44 in the BJB are OK. Setting the multifunction switch to HI closes the high beam relay in the BJB, removing power from the fog lamps and directing it through 20A FUSE 46 in the BJB to the high beam lamps. In other words, you can have fog lamps or high beam lamps but not both at the same time

the multifunction switch is set to HI, the high beam relay in the battery junction box closes

Help!!! how to reset a LDV Maxus key fob?


Hi
I know from experience that you cannot really re synch these fobs on the LDV Maxus vans.
What actually is the fault is an onboard component on the pcb has failed and we normally just replace that with a new one..the fob will be tested for operation and sent back. OR its the Relay in the ESA unit - under the left hand front glovebox on the bulkhead - black with cables going into it. We have those relays (soldered to the pcb) we can supply those or do the work for you. The fob connects to that ESA and the unit then fires the relays to open/close the doors. Sometimes that unit is installed upside down which causes water (condensation) to enter the box and have fun with your electrics.
The fob is SYNCHED to this unit via coding we can use your old fob to clone to a new fob and that will work with the ESA and the vehicle.
We have the parts on this link Items for sale from remobilise ltd

Here is a link to how to program the fob to the vehicle via the programmer - NOTE how you MUST have a working fob to program another (text at the start of the video... LDV Maxus flv

We can fix most problems on the LDV Maxus that occur with faults to do with the Central locking/fobs/ESA/ETACS - three relays are in the ESA and they control ONLY the central locking - two more relays are in the ETACS unit (behind the ashtray) and they control the fogs and intermittant wipers.

Any help or info needed please contact info@remobilise.co.uk
or tel 01792 896404.

Fog Lights won't come on?


Check fuses,
Note you probably must have parklights 'on' before foglights will operate (Check user manual for fog lamp operation (interlock) requirements),
Check operation of fog light relay (if fitted),
Check fog lamps and bulbs are ok.

Need a fuse box diagram to wire in fog lights


Fog lamps are installed on the front bumper. The switch is located to the left of the steering column on the dash panel. The fog lamps are turned off by the circuit relay when the high beam driving lamps are turned on. The circuit relay is located on the right front wheelhouse panel near the blower motor.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.
Removal & InstallationFog Lamp Element
See Figure 1
558610d.gif
Fig. 1: Exploded view of a fog lamp assembly

  1. Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
  2. Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
  3. Remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Remove the element from the bulb.

DO NOT handle elements with your bare hands, always handle with a clean cloth. Oil from your hands will cause the element to fail.
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Fog Lamp Switch
The fog lamp switch is removed and installed by simply prying the switch from the instrument panel and unplugging the electrical connector.
FOGLAMP BEAM ADJUSTMENT

  1. Position the vehicle on a level surface, facing a wall approximately 25 feet away. Remove the lamp stone shields and loosen the adjustment nuts.
  2. Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
    1. Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
    2. Height of the light beams on the wall should be 4 inches less than the center of the lamp assemblies when mounted on the bumper.
  3. Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.

Front Fog Lamps


My guess is you have a corroded wire (that has shorted out the connection); known problem for this vehicle.
