Yes we replaced the battery, it was on a 34mah battery but is now on a known working 45mah battery.

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

Been looking at replacement starter motors and altenators this lunch time to try and resolve the battery/starting problem.

I have found a new starter easy enough but struggling to find an Altenator, I have two part numbers 7565832 which appears to be an old PN and brigns up rather expensive altenators and 5999868 which brings up some but only in the 'More Items related' section of the search on ebay.

For example, this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310618889056, has the PN listed but doesnt have the 999 4x4 or the 1000 4x4 as a compatible match. It is however 12v 45amp which I belive to be correct. Would this alternator be the one im after?

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

Alternators are still available from any motor spares stockist, just take your old one with you.

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

any alternator from any 8v FIRE engine will fit.. the only 2 differences will be the pulley being a multi V belt or single V belt, and the electrical connectors on the back requiring a slightly larger eye crimp connector.

remember my alternator upgrade i did to Talon? 95 amps from the puny 45 amp alternator i had before.

you can skip the part where it took it all to bits, the only bit you would have to do is change that multi V belt pulley over to a single V belt pulley.

though i do think that it would be better if you just replaced the bottom engine crank
pulley over to a multi V belt and just use that. i know if talon has not been ran for a while and the rear battery is completely (or near enough) flat it does squeal like mad on the old single V belt.

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

Just replaced the temperature sensor but still goes to 100*C

I wasnt holding much hope out it would fix it but ah well.

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

Sounds pretty familiar to me


Meter probe was attached to cylinder head next to temp sensor, car left on idle. 87.4*C when the fan kicked in.

As long as rad fan kick in at some point it's fine and safe to drive.
When we reached top of Passo Di Stelvio pointer was touching red mark, wierd felling and hard to ignore when your other pandas shows correct temp.

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

i think it is actually the gauge its self.

the thermostat in a car should open around 81 - 88 degrees. the rad fan i found comes on when it hits 100.

i think the time to worry is when it reads off the scale.. :/

Oh, yes. You got the sisley dials? Mine was changed to std 4x4 (in 2007 as the MOT history shows +55k miles in one year).

If you got acces/ skills to use solder iron it might be worth taking the speedo pod out, dissasemble and make sure there is no dry joints and have a look on the actual gauge coil. Check +12 volts input to the speedo pod as well, are there any auxilary equipment ( i.e. radio, clock, side swiches illumination) hard wired into same +12v feed?

Re: Axel the Sisley 4x4

I'm still convinced that this is an earthing problem somewhere else on the cars. John is your battery light still glowing faintly?
