Am I inhibited ?

Whoa.....this is a work in progress. The car is not on the road at the present time and is going back in for further work to complete the job. When I decided to fit a new neutral safety switch I searched for a very long time unsuccessfully and nobody seemed to be able to recommend a source etc. That...

Am I inhibited ?

Further non cranking news herewith. I took a punt on a 4 pin neutral switch for my C3 autobox and asked my local garage to do a trial fit which went fine. Then he drilled an extra hole in the rubber cap to accommodate the extra pin. The attached pic of the old switch with 2 pins missing - a bit of a...

5a Centre Console

Probably a really stupid question, but I don't suppose you've still got that centre console hanging around ? Usual thing , if you don't ask you don't ......

New year's greetings to all scimarititarians, ahead of you is another year of Reliant Related (w)Ranglings. I'm the one who is still looking for a neutral safety switch for my Ford C3 autobox. I found one today with 4 pins whereas mine has 3, and as there are references to both of these being in use...

SE6 living near me....

Orange SE6 on a front drive looking somewhat forlorn on the Pencisley Rd on the way into Cardiff. When I first started actively looking for a Scimitar Project, I had thought to contact this bloke to see if he wanted to sell ,but found my current one before.

Brown 6-Series near Llandow

Thanks Roger, apparently the full reg of this one is RMA 200P. Per the DVLA the colour is shown as green (!) but it is definately orange, and has been since I first came across it in the very early 80s. That said it is turning green very gradually From exposure to the elements. In addition the DVLA ...

Hi Jim, my intention is to replace the switch with a new one. I 'm not having much luck searching for the replacement. Out of curiosity, is there an alternative ??

Am I inhibited ?

Thanks Jim, as usual I have been doing things wrongly. I've decided it might be a good idea to replace the neutral safety switch,but looking round the electric interweb (!) there doesn't seem to be much to see,but I'm probably just looking in all the wrong places as usual. Do you have any ideas pl? ...

MY NON TURNING SE6 HAS TURNED AT LAST!!! SHOCK HORROR. I did this by bypassing the reverse safety switch and the solenoid wiring etc ( low voltage on the White/red wire) to get temporarily mobile to get to a garage to investigate the cause of the starting probs. Can anyone confirm just what wires on...

I've had a.bit RNR from my non cranking SE6 by tidying up the engine bay, time well spent etc. The immobiliser is the Thatcham approved Autowatch 239 TI which appears to be functioning normally, BUT when I Googled this I found some reference to symtoms the same as I've got. When they came to start t...

thanks Scimjim, I hadn't got that far cos I couldn't make any progress with the r/inhibitor due to access probs. there's power in the wire to it. I've now done the starter relay as you suggested and the relay functions and there is power there. I think I'll look at the solenoid next. I still have th...

The latest pic is great, thanks AJL, but I've drawn a complete blank over the weekend and I only got the rubber plug off. The rest is solid. To play safe I think I will tow the car to a friendly garage 1/4 mile down the road at ,say, 10/15 mph. I know the probsassociated with towing an auto, but wit...
