Puma 2.2 2015 Utility XS I have read (hopefully not imagined) that there is a permanently on live (positive) feed that runs from the 'front' to the back (somewhere in the drivers side triangular fabrication that protects the rear of the rear lights). I wondered if this was still true for a 2015 Puma 110 utility? and if so was it still a permanently on live (positive) unfused feed? Thanks Bill PS also would this apply to my 1989 110 TD (now V8)?
2015 Puma 110 utility 2.2 Was about / less than 2 miles from home, cabin filled with stinky smoke, (not electrical – I did wonder, not quite clutch) could not see where it was coming from, (or see anything else!) I verged it (new verb) - couldn’t see where I was going, jumped out to grab my extinguisher, and through the door could see it pouring out the handbrake shroud. It diminished before I could remember how to deploy the extinguisher (so much for the training) I opened all the doors and let it settle. When I pulled the hand-brake on it just snapped! When I got home and relayed this sorry tale to Wife, Daughter No1, and Mother in Law, the inevitable accusations of – you were driving with the handbrake on flowed. In my defence after 17 Land-Rovers over 30 yrs – I think I’d have known, and no warning light, and no effect on performance on an ‘enthusiastic’ (70 MPH till I hit the side-roads) 10 mile drive home, and the very rapid on-set of the smoke, makes me think I’m less of a halfwit than may family take me for? You may know different? Is this a case of a poor earth, and the handbrake cable burning out due to taking the whole earth to chassis? - Or??????
