Power hood circuit

Recommended Posts

SWINNEY

Hi all my power hood has stopped working I've a tried a few things and  it appears I don't have a supply to relays in the boot  the Haynes manual is next to useless does anyone have a circuit diagram before I start pulling apart trim to trace the wiring through

Yes the power hood is on a cti some have manual hoods

 

I have also found that the horn and cigar ligther don't work either .. no fuses have blown.

 

The haynes manual is rubbish in this area

really! bloody hell the 205 is some package

(I thought only porsche's and cadillacs had push button ragtops)

cant be livin like that, the wind'll muss up your perm, and no cigars

 

nothing so practical as a wiring diagram

Im still on electrical training wheels, but once several things start going at once, its quite often a common cause - earths

at the risk of sounding like an echo, check the rear earth cluster. if the hood relay's at the back as u seem to suggest, its probly earthing there too. just inside the Left Rear brake light. needs to be nice and clean, good clean contact, no corrosion etc

the horn earths on the cluster next to the LF headlight

 

sorry cant be of any genuine help, hpfully a crackshot sparkies will be along soon to set you proper straight

All earths checked as best I can its the live supply that doesn't appear to be leaving the fuse board

the fuseboard itself might be dud

 

my horn wouldn't work a few months ago

I never would have thought of it, but it turned out to be a dud fuseboard, so its possible you have the same issue. I was able to fix it with the help of Damir/Baptiste at:

 

 remove glovebox, unplug all wires from fuseboard, plug in replacement/fixed board, reinstall glovebox

Just swapped the fuse board with a replacement off ebay and the fault appears to have gone away thanks guys :D

 

Now need to see if I can fix the old one as a spare
