Battery drain findings
« Reply #130 on: 18 February 2017, 14:48 »
Just connected a multi-meter up, while running, it's showing 13.96v, when all auxiliaries are on, fluctuates at between 12.5-12.8v. When engine off its at 12.2 but drops 0.01 every 2 seconds or so, so not a dramatic decrease, but something is draining it....

having a few problems with starting the Cabrio, it starts, but is so lumpy, sounds rough as anything, smells of fuel and is kicking out a bit of smoke too, will check the norm later, leads plugs etc, but as soon as its warm-ish, it runs fine..until i switch it off, then it struggles again, could be like 5 mins, like filling up with petrol, its almost as if its flooding while the engine is off, because as soon as the engine starts, smokes a bit, its fine, as if its burnt off excess fuel,

strange one

I must admit I was thinking ECU, as I changed it last year as the original one got fried when the loom did.

Just started it now, and it a lumpy for about 30-45 seconds, really chugging, now absolutely fine lol. Almost like I'd forgot to pull the choke (remember them lol)  out.

Quick update,

Wish I could say I've been enjoying the roof down action...I haven't, the car has sat at the end of the road for a few weeks, not broken, I've just had a few other things to sort, I'm starting my own business so have been manic busy with sorting that, I injured my ankle on Easter Sunday, so spent most of the day up A&E  :undecided:

Car still rough on start up, going to give it a full service when I'm back on my feet, got to be worth it, going to replace the leads for better quality ones.

That's where we are at the min....its in a lot better state than 1 yr ago!!
