faulty blinkers/parkers front only

hi I have an EH, when I put either indicator on they both flash (front only)and sometimes both the indicators in the dash will flash, also when I turn the parkers on both the indicator lights will come on in dash ,the only thing ive done to try and fix this problem was to change the wiring and light fittings in the front. Has anyone had a simular problem and what was done to solve the problem ?Any help will be well apreciated

Bench Testing Gauges

I have a 2nd hand GTS dash (HX) and gauges that I am about to install into my Tonna, but thought I'd better check that they all work ok before going to the trouble of installing them. Do they operate off reduced voltage? Or can I just hook them up to a 12 volt battery source and test on the bench?

Thanks for the replies.

Holden HQ Ute front left indicator not working HELP

The front left indicator isn't receiving enough power to operate if any at all, I hook it up to the right side as works perfectly, so I'm guessing something is going on with the wiring

rewire job

I have to at one point put a new TPI harness in my Holden as the old one is the factory one 1989, and is getting old and brittle from the heat from engine bay and the hot weather in NTH QLD.
I've been advised that if I'm going to do this I mars well rewire the WHOLE car, A 1975 HJ Prem, it makes senses(we don't want a faulty old wire and a fire, do we now)
My QUESTION is - Who has done this and did you buy the harness ? and from who ?
Any help would be much appreciated

EH Electrical Re-Visited

Hi all Just an update the problem with my EH wagon now seems to be solved. The problem was with 2 wires shorting internally with each other, the yellow for rear brake lights and the black for parkers and number plate light, they have been removed and replaced with new wires of the same colour and the lights are all working as they should. Thank you all for your suggestions and help it was all much appreciated.

Cheers

EH Electrical

Anyone got any hints please. Parkers, headlights all work LH indicator is fine but when I put the RH indicator on all the instrument lights flash in sync with the indicators. Also when I put the parkers/ headlights on the brake lights come on, but with no lights on the brake lights work fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

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
