So nano is reporting bank 2 not receiving a signal, I’m presuming bank 2 is even cylinders, r/h side of car,
Am I correct ?

After my Hanook battery suddenly with no warning died on me, I stuck a new one in, I haven’t used the car for 4 days so thought as it’s covered in ice I’ll fire it up, it’s midnight , I opened the door and it fired straight away, went to shut the door and the frigging lock must be frozen, it won’t latch, I presume it’s full of crap,
Has anyone else encountered this ? If so do I remove the latch and clean, or just shoot a can of brake cleaner into it, I’ve ratchet strapped the front doors together, so it’s secure till later when it’s light.

I'm doing the heads on a totally butchered p38 1997 4.6. The battery went flat on the guy, since then front doors are superlocked, managed to get rear quarter out and gain access. It's not taking eka code from the door, in fact doesn't seem to be doing much, I've got engine disabled up on the dash, does this sound like a resync or is nanocom or faultmate needed, I've not had to deal with locks much so not that up on them, it's a pain as it's in Sussex so don't wanna get the engine right but can't start the bloody thing ( when I say it's butchered, l322 conversion, coils, air con pipes cut, heat shields missing, silicon everywhere, inner arches butchered. Mixture of different bolts of varying sizes, It goes on and on,,)

Hi all, anyone in sussex with a faultmate or nano to enter an eka code, I've just done heads on a rig, it locked out, had that sorted, bugger me, he takes battery lead off in case it drains,, ffs
Forgot to say, it's a gems, needs eka code put in, the door lock was demolished due to it jamming in super lock,,

Looking for what to use to clean the walnut trim back to something shiny, I’ve seen 3 stage cleaners/ polishes on eBay, has anyone used them ?

For a while now, I’ve been chasing a sound, that I can only describe as a loose washer ring !
It only happens when I go over speed humps, will admit I don’t slow down for them.
Has anyone else got this sound, I’ve triple checked every nut, bolt, washer and Bush under the car, it’s definitely from the front somewhere.
Only thing In the pipe line to change is radius arm bushes, P.O. put s*;tpart yellow poly bushes, that somehow I didn’t notice till a few months back. There being changed back to OEM bushes.
Any ideas are welcomed.

What can I say, bought a set , put one in to compare against my 100w xenon bulb, the difference is unbelievable, it’s like the xenon are candles in a jar, £47, but worth it,,

So I was having a clear out, had my old cats sitting there for a year now, thought do I throw or scrap, went down the scrap path, walked away with £160,, so be aware, if your thinking of fitting new cats, it won’t be as bad as it first seems,,

Was thinking it would be a good idea to either buy a wreath, or send donations to marks wife to do with as she feels fit, he was a much liked character here, both by those of us who meet him and those who hadn’t.
Let me know your thoughts.

I see we seem to be getting hit with a lot of spam recently, we also seem to have plenty of members who have joined but never introduced themselves or posted anything.
It’s been a while since I joined and can’t remember if we had to confirm that we’re not a robot sending out spam, I know this could be a headache to install and that Gordon has his own life away from here, if it involved a small cost I’d certainly donate just to stop these annoying posts..

Have we froze, or is everyone running ok for a change. Don’t think I’ve ever seen 3 days without something going on.
If your all running ok, come give me a hand to sort mine out, lol 😆

Unless of course someone knows of others..

Ok, so all summer my car sits lovely, doesn’t move overnight, but as soon as the wet or cold weather comes my front right drops overnight, It’s been doing this since I bought it, ive changed the valve block for my spare, sprayed the bag all over, it’s just weird that it only happens with damp or cold weather.
I have a 4 pin relay so not the self levelling.
Any thoughts welcomed

So I finally did it, after having my tick over go from 650 to 2500 I decided I need to invest in a nanocom evo,
Thought I’d have a look on eBay first, and grabbed one for £350, looks like new, in a posh bag, will most probably totally feck the car up once I start playing, lol 😂
I most probably will need some help once I start playing around, I’m ordering software for mine, as this has dse software ( might be helpful to help people )
I’m pretty sure the tickover problem is tps related, gotta dig out the spare one I have..
