Electrical Faults and Electric Repairs

Electrical faults on cars and vehicles are very common these days, and we see a huge variety of electric problems on most types of vehicles – from engine motor issues to fuse box problems to engine management faults.

The first car shown above was a Citroen c3 2012 which had a lot of electrical issues.  The dashboard warning lights were lighting up everywhere – ABS light, battery light, engine management light, airbag light just to mention a few.

With a little investigation & diagnosis we found the main fuse box of the car had suffered a lot of water damage corrosion causing a few of the main pins to break off & stick themselves within the plug causing the ECU massive problems as it was picking up on all of these faults saying things were going on which weren’t.

To repair these electric faults on the car quickly, we ordered up the new replacement fuse box dug out the broken pins & fitted new fuse box within 24 hours – solving the engine management light problems.

The next car shown with electrical faults is a Renault Clio 2007 – the problem with this car was that it just wouldn’t start off the key.  It was as if the battery was dead or the starter wasn’t engaging, if you pushed the car it would bump start no problems, would run all day no problems – other than the abs light being on constantly on the dashboard.

Further investigation using engine diagnostic machine to communication with the ABS control module to find the fault code or possible fault related information, we were only getting fault related to no signal for ABS control module.  We then found that the electric fuse relay plate was blown and this was what was the cause of the non-starting by key & the ABS warning light issue.  Again, we ordered our customer the replacement electric fuse relay plate, delivered next day, (as a dealer only part), fit the new part and all electric faults are resolved.

The other car with electric faults shown above was Renault Clio 2004.  This car had airbag related issues, the airbag light on the dashboard was always on, so running an engine management diagnostic check was vital.  We run the diagnostics test on the Renault to discover that there were 2 issues – a problem with the airbag deactivation switch on the passenger door was faulty with no signal, and there was a problem with a crash sensor situated down the side of drivers seat, again no signal usually caused with water damage at this point.
