electrical fault

Postby bigrab2203 » Fri 03 Feb 2012 1:06 am

My 97 300tdi disco1 has an electrical fault ! My warning beeper for door open and lights on with key out heated rear windscreen rear wiper and intermittent wiper and wash wipe have all suddenly stopped working I've tryed every fuse and connector I can find and have been told it is the door switch but have changed it with no result I'm hoping someone knows this fault as landrover in Motherwell ain't got a clue! Thanks :?

The MFU plugs into the rear of the internal fuse panel, it's a cream coloured item.

Glad to hear it. :) You should set a trap and capture one or two then hire them out to LR owners. We don't have them in my part of the world. :lol:
