Help! Electrical Gremlins

3 posts in this topic

Hi all!

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Firstly, a big thanks to FOC for helping me solve another recent issue with my 2002 Galaxy 1.9Tdi which was the brake master-cylinder.

Anyway, this car has been a faithful servant for the past 6 years and i'm now experiencing some slight problems but it won't diminish my love for the car one bit. I first noticed the problem yesterday. My drivers window has simply stopped working without warning/noise etc. Now, I have searched enough to know that its normally the regulator in this case however, after noticing this, I turned on my sidelights, which came on but the hazard lights also flashed a few times....! Then a headlight went out, and now my central locking goes through the motions, locks, then motions continue and the doors all unlock again.

I am going to look at this Wednesday evening when I can get this into the garage, so what i'm hoping for is for a kind soul to help point me in the right direction and try to cut down my head scratching time!

Do I start at the fuse box, drivers door panel, under the hood...where? Any help or comments greatly rec'd!

Many thanks in advance guys.
