    Defender engine number location ?

    Not a 12J! Looks like an intercooler as part of the rad Peter

    Work/Fog light wiring

    Yes I did, the 12v fused went to the relay (located at the back of the car) in heavy cable (no LED variants when I did it and they (I had 2) were 60W each I think?) Cheers Peter

    I don't know about the ex MOD versions, but with my 110 I ran new wires on the chassis (one fused 12v from the battery and a switched 12v from the switch I had in the cab), it was a lot easier! Cheers Peter

    Voltage at Stop Solenoid - Engine won't switch off

    A Google came up with that diode on a DeLorean! It's a 1A diode same as I sent to you. The DeLorean ones are £7.50 each!!!!! Cheers Peter

    Maybe he didn't :-)

    Voltage at Stop Solenoid - Engine won't switch off

    To be fair, I didn't hide it and the new owner was fully aware of the problem when I sold it! Peter

    Voltage at Stop Solenoid - Engine won't switch off

    That was where I first got involved! I solved the problem - sold the car!

    Do you have a diode - I have a plentiful supply of 1N4001 (silicon 1A), happy to send you one. Cheers Peter

    2v is probably enough to hold a relay open enough to allow tickover. I found that blipping the throttle stopped it because it was starved of fuel. Cheers Peter

    Voltage at Stop Solenoid - Engine won't switch off

    Yes and no. It would do it consistently for a while, then behave a few times! I sold it, so I have no idea now! Cheers Peter

    I had a 110 fitted with a 200Tdi that gave the same symptoms. It is surprising how little diesel is required to keep an engine ticking over. Like you I also had to stop it by stalling it. I removed the 12v feed and it still carried on, I removed and serviced the solenoid valve (no debris) and it still carried on, I replaced the solenoid stop valve and it still carried on. To be honest (and it is no help!) I never solved the problem! Cheers Peter

    It is best NOT to use a multi-meter as they lie! For this sort of problem, use a test light that puts some current into the circuit. Cheers Peter

    New swivels

    Last time I did the job on my Defender I did it myself. Gut feel is that the quote is rather pricey. It's not really a difficult job, just fiddly in places! Cheers Peter

    Smokescreen worthy of a Bond Car being pursued!

    Thanks for all the help/suggestions. I'm in a rock and a hard place it appears! The car is in a council lock up and I should be able to change the steering box there. At the moment it has no tax and the MoT is at least 3 years out of date. So, I can't drive it on the road, but I need to drive it to clear this problem. I also need to drive it to test the brakes as I assume they will be rather stiff after a period of no use. The MoT tester is about 1/3 mile away, so not much driving to get there either (unless I take a mildly circuitous route.....) I note the need for fresh fluids and I will do that when it is MOT'd and more mobile. Cheers Peter

    Not black smoke. White/grey. No tax, no MoT, so cannot be drive at the moment. Cheers Peter
