Just a quick question, how exactly do you bypass the heater resistor, my heater motor has stopped working and as the motor itself is less than a year old I can only assume the resistor is toast, I have checked the fuse and associated wiring and all seems fine, this morning I ran a direct live to each of the 3 terminals on the resistor but not a peep from the motor, any suggestions other than the resistor?

Mr B wrote:Bug, thanks so much for explaining this, it all makes a lot more sense to me now, no wonder running a direct live to the resistor terminals had no effect! I've been reading the print off the Haynes manual electrical diagrams trying to work it out, an electrician I'm definitely not that's for sure.
Thanks again mate

I've found this post most useful, boys.
Once done, it'll be bubble wrapped and stored with the rest of the booty I've been squirreling away for Project GBH
Mr B wrote:Hi bug, turns out the motor is fine, once I wired it up correctly the motor sprung into life, the resistor board on the other hand looks like it's broken/cracked in two or three places
Mr B wrote:Hi bug, trust me this is a lesson learnt, although I'm curious, is there a reason why some circuits are wired up in this way?
