Renault 5 GT Turbo / few electrical problems
« on: 10:58, Wed 06 January 2010 »
i am having a problem with my headlight, side lights and horn. horn or side lights dont work at all and my headlights keep flashing when they aint even on and when i try turning them on they dont come on. where can i find the relay for the headlights?

also what is the brown relay for behind the passanger side headlight and the 2 black felays for behind the driver side headlight?

a few weeks ago i got my 1st 5 gtt. had it a day and the head gasket went. i was told of the lad i gt it off that it had an engine rebuild 500 mile ago, so he said!!!
what a start. so got it in the garage, stripped it down and found the head to be very badley pitted. took it to get skimmed and the lad said that the head had never been skimmed before. bought a 1.9mm uprated headgasked from k-tec racing and uprated head bolts. put it back together, sorted out the vacume pipes and what have you as they were all over the place when i got it.

had the 5 back on the road since christmas eve and all seems fine. going to check the head bolts tomorow and flush the engine and change the oil as its still a little murkey. had the car running at standard boost since i have changed the head gasket - bout 8 to 10psi

i have on order a front mount intercooler (core size: 550x175x65mm) what should hopefully be here monday or tuesday so i can hopefully get this fitted next weekend

any way here are a few pics i have gettin over the past few days

Then the snow got worse  :lol: and i got stuck afew times
