Re: Key in ignition chime

Underneath the steering wheel (remove the "cover"), there is a apparently a brown plug with 2 red wires ..... unplug it... Are you sure, I do not want to 'unplug' the whole car, I do not trust all the electronics on the newer cars. I once towed a small trailer and when I switched on the headlights,...

Anyone know where the little buzzing device is situated?? Maybe this will help: "1. Remove steering column shroud - 3 screws - remove key surround - with a small screwdriver, gently force the two shroud sections apart. Insert the screwdriver where the 2 stalks enter the shroud. Only the bottom sect...

Re: Over heating problems

The system is designed such that, in the event of a small boil, it will be contained within the reservoir. Next time you hear it, unscrew the reservoir's cap and see if steam is emitting from the small pipe coming from the radiator. If this is the case, it isn't necesarily a problem, because the wat...

Re: Over heating problems

The heater comes on and off at random while travelling, which is highly annoying. I read on an Aussie website recently of a 4.8 having exactly the same problem after flushing the cooling system. Apparantly the system has to be bled at a screw in front of the cylinder head to release all air. Does an...

Re: Over heating problems

Yes, get the car up to normal temps. Put heater on full warm. The while idling you remove the cap. You will see the bubbles and a poor stream of water come out. Continue until you see a solid strong stream of water comming out. Put the cap back. Wait a bit and do it again until their is no more air ...

Re: Over heating problems

I have a strange problem, the metal pipe to the front of the starter motor leading to the heater (I presume), picked up a small crack on the way to the Namib, which they welded in Keetmanshoop. (Fortunately I picked it up before the car lost too much coolant and the engine temperature never climbed...
