Hi, you all seem a knowledgable bunch so perhaps someone can help?
I just noticed that the backlight in the dashboard is flickering - it's only really noticable in low light conditions so don't know how long it has been flickering.
Can anybody tell me if their dash flickers, maybe i've just never noticed.
It only flickers when the engine is running but if i disconnect the stator from the reg/rec (brown connector) it stops flickering.
I took volt readings at 4000rpm: Dash reading 14.0-14.4V, at battery 14.0-14.4V, stator 75VAC. Checked reg/rec with a multimeter on ohms and it checked out OK as in the manual.
Battery connections are good, checked the earths on LHS and RHS of engine, pulled all fuses and checked, pulled the ign switch connector and checked resistance, was OK 0.1 ohm and repaired one dodgy terminal.
Checked voltage drop from reg/rec to battery while charging was about 2V so OK.
So where to go from here?
