  7. No. I have already replaced that with no success. I'm after the in dash control unit below the audio head unit.
  8. Hi, Is the air con control unit available please? I think mine is draining the battery as the air sampling fan runs continuously.

    This is virtually the problem I have but there seems to be no solution.

    Another battery drain!

    Hi, Rincewind and Piper, already has new hedgehog. Gavin, Lokked in car after a couple days parked in garage and gear selector light is on. Before pulling fuse 9 current is around 3 amps after reinsert current is .4. While fuse is out gear selector light is on, also reinserting fuse activates a relay but difficult to identify where. Thanks to all David

    Another battery drain!

    Hi I have a '97 540 which drains the battery inside of a week. Have been testing amp readings in glove box and on fuse 9 I have .4 amps and the little fan on the climate control panel does not seem to stop at all. Also the gearbox indicator ight stays on. Any suggestions and solutions gratefully received. Thanks David. Been searching for wiring diagrams on the net without luck.

    Low Temperature

    Started to take off thermostat today and found a plug not connected to socket on thermostat housing. I assume its a sensor for something to do with temperature, what? Thanks for replies so far.

    Low Temperature

    Recently bought a 97 540 on ebay a bit risky as it has a couple of issues. One it does not come up to temperature on the gauge, about one third instead of halfway. Previous owner replaced thermostat there is evidence it has been done. He says he was told the sender may be faulty, have just replaced it and no change. Set heating to max and temp drops to edge of blue sector. After 10 mile run fan sounds to be fully engaged when engine reved. If electrical could it be linked to abs light always on, that is the second issue. Again previous owner says abs light came on after going through a puddle he seems to think rear sensor passenger side. Any ideas please?
