Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi all,

I have an intermittent electrical problem. Occasionally my indicators stop working, and at the same time so do the hazard lights, temperature gauge, rear wiper, intermittent front wiper and interior light. (None of these are on the same fuse). All the fuses are OK, and the problem fixes itself for no apparent reason only to occur again at a later date. Any ideas? Failing that does anyone know of a good auto-electrician in the Reading area?

John B.

I've found the answer to my own question, which I will post in case it might be of use to anyone. It was suggested to me that the problem might be due to water in a multiplug shared by the items that were affected (probably a result of someone jet-washing the engine bay). There is a relay box under the bonnet that contains the relays for, among other things, the wipers and flashers; two bundles of wires from this box are connected to multiplugs which I couldn't access sufficiently to disconnect them but a squirt of WD40 into each end of the plugs seemed to be finding it's way inside and it seems to have solved the problem. Hope that might be of use to someone.......J.B.

I don't have a GM900 but thanks for updating the thread. Many people don't bother and it can be really frustrating. Well done and glad you fixed it!
