Geesh Dave - gremlins are running amuck there. Corral them electronpuppies and give the dogs a treat!

Martin - I went through my electric gadget box and found some of my old XJS spares. Funny little bulbs and the hex bulbs that pushed in like a fuse. What a fun time I had with that car. I pulled the fuel rail on the V12 and replaced the rubber fuel lines to the 12 injectors. Tedious job cause the old lines had gone brittle and wanted to drop into the into the injector. And that's why many a Jag V12 Fuel Injected engine went up in flames.

This one's for Martin

So if the UK doesn't use wire nuts, how do they fasten wires together? Is the UK 120 or 240V? AC or DC?

Dave, you have an issue that could be serious. The iRV2 Fleetwood owners corner can help better that I can.
The heat can only be caused by high current, usually from loose connections.
Have you checked all of the chassis ground wire connections?
Best wishes, Mutant

I can relate!
Good friends of mine were owned by Jaguars.

I had to put on my ugly reduction lenses to view that in a perspective that was nice.

Just kidding, ya know! Looking great Larry..keep it up.

Just a suggestion. ( Wire nuts are not allowed in UK code by the way!)
Just plain nuts, eh Martin

Hi Dave. UK is 240v 50Hz AC. All connections are made within connection boxes using screw terminal blocks, as shown in the left foreground below

Attachment 1

The white translucent screw-connector block in the foreground is a typical example. This one is rated for 5A. Other sizes are available for different current ratings.

Light fixtures and power outlets incorporate built-in screw connector blocks.

Martin, you left out the best part. All circuits attach to the mains panels at both ends and all circuits for a loop. When I was a visitor there twenty some years ago I couldn't wrap my head around their wiring system, just as my buddy Danny had a problem when he visited me here in Canada.

The unit in your picture top right is the cable attachment gizmo that I prefer to use when you can find them as there's no twisting involved. Open the screw in the brass piece, slip in the two or three wires to be joined, tighten the screw and then screw the plastic insulating cover back on.

BTW I too had European vehicles wired by the "Prince of Darkness" over the years. To say how much the imaginary image I mind formed of the designer resembled Darth Vader I am sure that Gorge Lucas had the same two cars.

Well, well, Dennis. How strange! When we remodeled and added to our house I did all the wiring using the UK practise of "ring circuits", both lights and power. It uses a little more cable but it does ensure no volt drop that you would get on a single end spur. I've described the principle to many US people and no one gets it. One of our utility engineers even went as far to say he thought that my practise was dangerous! The other practise I used was to separate lighting and power circuits so that if an appliance trips a breaker, the lighrs in the room don't go out.
