Question about 2006 Maserati Gransport

1 Answer

2006 Maserati Gransport bought new

The car had 2000 miles on the odometer and was driving it when it suddenly stalled and the turned off. Tried starting it again and the dashboard indicators lit up like a christmas tree. There was teh smell of something burning. Went around and as soon as I lifted the hood, a fire erupted at the front end of the engine. Could any one comment on the cause? Were there any recalls on this model due to electrical problems ?

    There were no recalls for anything resembling this. Generally the engines in these specific cars were bullet proof. I have seen them with upwards of 200k on them. Clutches and F1 systems is at times an issue. Fires out of the blue is not. Sounds like to me someone previously worked on the vehicle and put things back in away they shouldn't have been. I've heard about one other car fire in a 4200 coupe (same type of car as the GS just the earlier model) this was related to the heater core leaking down on the fuse box, passenger side floor board.

Black (Nero) or Silver (Grigio) needs either the Red Rosso) leather or Light Tan (Avorio) to have the maximum impact, I like Avorio.

While starting the car - dash lights lite up..pushed starter and everything went dark! Zero power...fuse or larger problem?r

probably your battery is out of specs. you need to be able to measure 12.45 to 12.65 volts when engine is off. lower voltages are not enough for modern cars.

Replacing door mirror on Maserati 3200GT

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

You'd be surprised, I've seen 4 Black GS come through our dealership with red leather in the last 4 months. I personally wasn't sure I'd like it but after seeing it in person must say "I like it".
