Re: Blu's blue 500

well bit tricky without any wiring diagrams tbh but just had a quick play - there is 5 wires to the back of the ignition switch, 3 on one plug - thicker gauge on the other plug. None of the wires have 12v and switch seems to work as it should but being that 12v isn't getting there its not switching anything on - so it seems further back than the ignition switch. Wondering if there is some maxi-fuses somewhere I have not found thats killed power to the complete engine harness as nothing is getting power at all.

Re: Blu's blue 500

OK so looking at a list of all the fuses and relays, I see T31 30A 12v relay described as 'front 12v power supply' and T09 30A 12v relay described as 'Engine Control System Main Relay'. Swapped round with some other 30A relays and nothings changed so thats not it - I should just leave it until i have some diagrams of the wiring really but i can't help myself.
Rechecked all the fuses and they are 100% good unless there is more than in the engine bay fuses and the ones in the glove box

So I think I will order a new battery as part of the course but stuck this one on charge for a bit for now for more testing later - i mean i know its not just the battery as we tried a good one already but its not gonna help having a weak battery. I guess I actually do need the diagrams now to try trace the fault.

Re: Blu's blue 500

update: So a mate sent me some pics of the wiring diagrams and some bits and pieces. Looking through ignition switch circuit first i immediately spot its says battery ----> maxi fuse T03 (20A) ----> ignition switch, seems simple enough. Look at car and no fuse in T03 but one next to it is 20A, its not possible a fuse has just completely vanished into thin air so I think i must've put it back wrong when i was checking them in car park. Weirdly, the slot next to it is labelled T83 and none of the lists I have have that on, got T82 and T84 but no T83 - I'm pretty sure its meant to just have no fuse but there is connectors beneath in in the fusebox making me think there should be.

Anyhow, fuse in ignition switch instead of T83 and yay, i have power to the ignition switch. Now when i turn it on relay T17 constantly clicks on/off and in time with that the dash lights up and the radio etc. So that weird bit was clearly me jut being mental.

Swapped relays round, and they all click constantly in T17 - Which i believe is the fuel pump relay.

Now at this point, I start to wonder about the battery and if its actually just dead and thats the problem now i have stopped being an idiot and put the fuse back in the right place. So I have ordered a new battery, its got the original one in there atm so its 5 years old - we have start/stop deactivated so the battery doesn't get that hammered really but 5 years is long enough for a battery to die anyway. So I'll call it quits until the battery arrives, hopefully Wednesday.

So my only queries to anyone reading now are:
1. What is the fuse T83? Its 5th from the bottom of the line of Maxi fuses. Is it just for something my car doesn't have or have i been totally scatter brain and dropped and lost a 20A maxi fuse somehow.

Re: Blu's blue 500

Ok I've officially just been a spaz and it was just i put the fuse back in wrong place and it needed a battery. The old battery was on charge all night and reads 12.6v, stuck it in and same, stuck new battery in and it lives. Just had to clear out about 300 million codes with MES and everything is well with Sulley again

Re: Blu's blue 500

Ok, question or couple of for you all..

The small plastic panel that goes between the windscreen and sunroof... The paint is peeling off ours and it looks terrible.

Now I could take it off, sand it, prime and paint it - but I think it would just be easier to just buy a new replacement. However, I cannot find it as a part on the eper only the whole sunroof. Anyone got any idea if it does have a part number i can search for.

And secondly, has anyone actually taken this bit off - I presume I can get it off without taking the whole sunroof out, perhaps pull down the headliner and there is some clips or screws or something. Just wondering if anyone has had it off before i start pulling the car to pieces to try myself.

Re: Blu's blue 500

OK, so I might have bought Mrs Blu a new car, collecting this weekend. So the little 500 will be up for sale soon. Will write a proper ad once I have got round to giving it a proper clean and stuff but if anyone is interested drop me a PM. Its got just over 55k on it now and I will prob give it a service and put fresh 12 months ticket on it before it goes.
