Just popped out to check and it is a 7.5A fuse and it is fine.
(The slots aren't numbered but it's about half way down and labeled on the fusebox lid)
Unfortunately I haven't anyone to keep the revs up while I test the voltage. Also the aircon pump doesn't work!
I tested the battery connections at idle not too long back and it was reading approximately 14.5 volts.
I'll give it a check with lights on at 2500rpm when I get hold of someone later tonight.
What should it be reading then?
It's not exactly a battery warning light as such. It is a row of Japanese letters that actually translates to 'alternator not charging battery'.
I've tried two batteries, one being the original and a brand new one.
I'll try the removing the earth cable at 1200 revs when I get another person tonight.
Another quick note, there isn't any warning lights when idling! Just when pressing the accelerator.
Ok. I managed to pinche someone.
The rev counter goes off when acceleration is applied. This is a new thing that started with the charging warning. I guessed the revs and at a highish rev the voltage is stil 14.6v. I disconnected the negative lead at a slightly raised rpm and the engine ran as normal.
I have read on a few forums that that warning light doesn't always mean there is a problem with the alternator but I cannot find any alternative problems hence why I am inquiring to you. (Ive obsoleted the alternator)
I have also noticed that my catalytic converters sound like they are rattling and was wondering if a coilpack has gone would the engins still sound okay as they are well balanced? Cheers.
Where abouts am I looking for this orange light?
I think I've found it. Would it be the O/D OFF orange light?
If so then it flashes constantly, about 4 every second 1,2,3,4,5...
I bridged E1 and TE1 an it flashed constantly which according to certain sites I've researched means normal.
I also bridged E1 and Tc which brought up a help screen on the touch screen on the dash but it's in Japanese and have no idea where to go with that if anything can be found there.
Ok. Many thanks anyway.
