Generator light EH red Motor Update

Thanks guys for all the comments and advice. I did follow the diagrams and fitting instructions, but it still doesn't go out. So I thought I would post a picture of the alternator.

Thanks

Failing Alternator ?

our recently purchased vr statesman having a few issues. a couple of weeks ago it had sat for a few days without being used, was struggling to turn over. next day we came out to a dead battery, the battery out of the HK came to the rescue. now whenever it has sat for a couple of days it turns over very slowly, to the point you think it`s not going to start but just gets there.

Generator light EH red Motor

Hi al I've recently fitted a Bosch alternator to my 149 as it had nothing when I got it. The alternator has 4 connections 1 for power, 1 for warning light, and 2 others 1 is marked D+ and I can't remember what the other is. I have connected the original power wire(red) to the B+ on the alternator and the generator light wire(brown)to the warning light terminal and it charges well but the generator light does not go out( it has a 12V2w globe fitted. I know this question has probably been asked before but I want the generator light t go out.

Dual function oil pressure switch

**ANSWER FOUND** Holley Part SKU: HO12-810

Seeking wisdom of the sparky kind.....
Could anyone point me in the direction of an open/closed dual circuit oil pressure switch?

Goal is, "Oil pressure- fuel pump power/ LIGHT off"
"No Oil Pressure- no fuel pump/ LIGHT on"

Not entirely sure where to source, and surely someone can steer me even towards what these switches/ senders are called.

Happy Holdening

HJ wiring

Wiper motor issues

Hi

I have a wiper motor with power to the yellow at the motor but it only turns slowly on low speed, nothing on high or washers.

Sparks appear at the mounts of the switch in the dash when you loosen mounting screws.

Any ideas please???

Hj gts dash lights

Hi All,

I Have put the gts dash into the HJ (after cleaning ) and found the 2 ignition lights ( battery charge etc ) don't come on.

With bulbs removed there is power to each socket. I suspect these must be earthed but I can't trace to where.

Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

GTS tacho problem

Had the WB ute re sprayed so the motor came out. Unfortunately the tacho ( HJ dash, white needle) has not been wired back in. I ran a wire from the negative coil to the back of the tacho to see if it worked.

Problem: There is a wire already on the negative of coil going to the LPG relay. When I add the tacho wire this seems to stop the lpg relay from working and vehicle won't start.

Tacho used to work prior to motor out and has always been on gas. Not sure how to wire tacho back in.

HZ Kingswood Dash High Beam light

Hi, I am having trouble solving a dash light issue HZ Kingswood 202,3 Sp man. The light is the Blue High Beam indicator on the dash. It does not work, so first I checked all fuses with test light, OK, then after some other testing decided to replace the globe, dash unscrewed, globe replaced, didnt work, then I thought maybe the carrier, so swapped with one I know is working, still not working. The other lights work, oil, brake, alt and indicators.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Richard

Possible Earth Issue

Hi guys
I'm having an issue with my HK I suspect is as earthing issue.

My lights and tail light lamps work.
My brake lights work.

However, when my headlights are on, and I put my foot on the break, my driver's side rear lamp turns off.

I've heard HK holdens are infamous for bad earthing, so I'm curious to hear people's thoughts.

Inside HEI module

Thought I'd pull this apart while I had a few minutes, would appear the IC is toast. This is a generic module, not Bosch. Would be interesting to compare.

HEI module tech

Does any body electrically minded have a diagram of the internals of the HEI module? It's only a curiosity as I've seen a number of these fail and every time it's due to poor earthing of the module to the engine block/chassis. I'm curious as to the path of failure caused by the poor earth.

electrical issue with indicators

HI, can I please get some opinions on my electrical problem.
I hope its just a cactus indicator can (which I cant find with a quick search)
one green indicator stays on, on my dash, and both rear indicators stay on.
this is when I have turned off and taken key out.
if I move the indicator stick it turns one or the other rear light off.
does it sound like a real problem or just look harder for the can and replace it?
