SOURCE: vauxhall zafira towbar wiring diagram.

what make of towbar wiring kit was fitted ? You can get a Whitter grey (S) fitting kit but this connects to their own black (N) wiring kit I would think any supplier of the N wiring should be able to supply a S kit.

SOURCE: My range rover battery keeps going flat after 3

You have what we call a parastic load aka key off drain.Disconnect the negative battery cable from its post and put an ammeter in series with post and cable.
Then start pulling fuses until voltage returns to normal.You can do this with a test light too, however the ammeter is more accurate. I'm not sure what is the amperage draw limit for your vehicle is but as a guide line figure at about a half a volt or 0.50 amps.

SOURCE: where are spark plugs positioned on a Rover 25 -

They are positioned beneath the black engine cover that is secured by 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the cover. You'll see the coil packs which will need to be unbolted to allow access to two of the spark plugs. Be careful not to mix-up the coil packs and HT leads, they must go back in the exact same positions.

Hi I've got a 58 plate rang rover sport and my key turns in ignition but it won't start or lock and unlock the doors for the alarm have you any idea what this could be please?


Have you checked the battery? Bad battery, connection, damage wire. Stay with the basic, check the battery and the terminals.
sounds like a dead battery I'd the alarm is not working, if the battery is fine look at the battery terminal clean them and secure the connection.
But I would like more info if this does not fix your problem.

Good luck and thanks

Battery drain in 3.3L motor


It would appear that steps need to be taken to determine the current draw . it can not unless there is a circuit for it to do so . Disconnect the earth strap from the battery and insert an amp meter in the circuit . IF there is a circuit for the current you will read that current and that will point to what unit is capable of using that current with out serious effect. Low current (up to 3amps ) indicates lights so check boot light still on-glove box light on- interior light on-head light module faulty etc.; Higher draw then look for ECM working when it should be off--sensors operating from shorts __HO2s sensor ABS unit operating. Starter motors I would discount because if the solenoid was operating the starter would be spinning the motor. Check that the audio systems are not operational with out making noise .Units I would be checking would be automatic units that draw through a relay and a check for this would be to watch the amp meter for a change as each power wire to the relay/s was removed and re installed . IF you find a relay that causes a variance I would replace that module and recheck the current draw.

2009 land rover lr2 with dead battery..again


You have a short circuit happening somewhere. Check the battery cables and terminals - is there any corrosion or "lumpy\' parts in the wires? Take the battery to a local auto parts store and have them load test the battery - this will tell if there\'s an issue with your battery. Look at the cable connection points - is there engine grease or "green death" on them ( GD is resistance causing corrosion)? The starter and alternator cables/wires need to be checked too. Insofar as the false notices, you may also have contamination issues with the main computer harness. Using electrical parts cleaner ( spray) will help clean these up - BUT I strongly recommend you get some Dielectric grease to put on all of the connections to reduce resistance and retard corrosion. While checking the cables and wires, feel along the length of them for lumps ( indicating internal corrosion or breakage) Pay special attention to the cables at the battery terminals ( primary location for corrosion). Using baking soda and water will also clean up corrosion, but it takes longer to dry than elect.parts spray ( ether based, usually).
There is also a ground strap that goes from the Chassis to the engine. If this strap is coated in grease or rust/contamination, that will cause your issue too. It will take some time to investigate these things, but it could save you financial headache too !
When you get it to start, I suggest backing it in the garage.
Let me know what you find and I\'ll help you from there.
Thanks for using Fixya!

Rover 25 wont start with key, makes fast clicking noise , engine management light illuminated, will start when jumped


If it's charging properly, and the cables are clean and tight, your problem is likely the battery, which i am assuming is 5 years old now. If it's not charging 14 amps, then it's the alternater.

How to wire a towbar to a renault laguna ? what


Hi there,

If you have the Renault end, I've got the rest. I have the pinouts for 7 wire, 6 Wire and 4 Wire, One of them will fit the bill

Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are: Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:

White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric2_bing.gif Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery2_bing.gif, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

A test light and a 12VDC power source can be handy for trouble shooting
.
Best regards

Rover 420 diesel battery keeps going flat


looks like you have something draining the battery (something electrical staying on) disconnect your battery negative terminal and connect a test light between the battery post and the wire clamp if the light comes on you have battery drain (make sure interior light is out when testing) you now need to go through all elctrical systems to trace the reason why ( check boot light goes out first this was a favorite cause)

Fitting a standard towbar wiring kit to a 1998 rover 420


There should be a wiring harness under the kick panel under either the rear of the vehicle right next to the light (plugs into adapter) or it is under the kickpanel on the passenger side of the vehicle where there foot would be next to the door under the dash
