Re: Welcome tattoodave joins our Forums...

ive currently got a 98 scoob thats got a few probs :O( . . . the other day whilst driving i lost all the electrics to the windows and the rev counter and speedo went dead including the boost gauge ????? called the AA out and they said that the power was coming straight from the battery ( no charging from the altenator ). . . changed the alternator and tried to start but not enough power to turn the motor. . . called the AA out again for a jump start and they said that the alternator was faulty and researched into it a little before determining that the altenator was in fact ok ????? checked the obvious stuff like fuses ect all was good with those and was told that it could be the dash cluster ???? im absolutly miffed by it all and now have a very cool 98 subaru impreza garden ornament . . . ???? have you ever heard of such a problem ????

Re: Welcome tattoodave joins our Forums...

As above, clean up all your earth connections. Check all wires are nice tight connections. You can get a battery tester from Maplin for about 6. It will test the battery and also the altenator.
