  1. In all my years in the motor trade I’ve never seen one blow!! There was no welding done on the car when it went, it was a random incident. I would be assuming that the alternator may have been to blame for that, luckily it was replaced. Looks like il have to go to the main dealer to get a replacement!
  2. I thought I would update ! i know it’s been a while, well over 18 months actually but I decided a couple of days ago to have another look at the car and this electrical issue as I want to put it back on the road, after a damn good day testing fuses, relays wires and lots of swearing and frustration I have found the problem!! i thought I would update this so if any fellow aygo owners face a similar situation they will be able to see the exact cause of the problem. i have attached a picture of what it was and it is located inside the engine fuse box! maybe now I will have a bit more enthusiasm in sorting it again!
  3. The car has sat in the back of the workshop for about 18 months so its probably been chewed up by mice
  4. Ive checked engine bay fuses and also the ones in the cluster inside. When I remove f1 on the cluster and put a positive feed into it with my tester everything works as it should which suggests its a short somewhere.
  5. OK so I've got a random electrical issue and im at a total loss as to what's wrong. The car starts and drives although I haven't got any radio, power steering, rev counter or central locking, everthing else works fine. The fuses are all good, I've checked every single one and still no luck, the car was fine and has just randomly happened. Any ideas? Its a mk1 05 plate

    Out of interest did you clear the codes once the new sensor was fitted?

    I'll have a look in my error code book after dinner and see what it says and get back to you.

    Is it petrol or diesel?
  10. Those parts are generally sprayed by Toyota approved bodyshops when the customer chooses the colour of the part upon initial order of the car. They are generally poorly prepped as the technicians give it a quick scotch before painting and that's why theres the issue of delamination.
  11. Tap the starter motor with a rubber mallet, my money is on it being seized
  12. my seats in my mk1 were horrendous so ripped them out and fitted a set of expensive cobra bucket seats in, solved the problem :)
  13. hi mate, im afraid that wont polish out!, my bodyshop is only 15 mins from bedford if you want it painting ill do you a good deal,
  14. if it runs dry it will be a pig to start, if it wont go, spray some easy start through the air box and itl fire straight away, will cough and splutter a bit but as soon as the petrol meets the engine again itl be fine!
