ED Falcon Electrical Fault - Please help.

How are you going?

The battery in my ED falcon recently went flat. When I removed the battery I measured the resistance between the negative and positive leads and picked up 2.0 Ohms.

I unplugged the leads one at a time and noticed that when I unplugged the red plug the resistance shot up to 28.8 kOhms. With all of the plugs disconnected there was only a small white and black wire which must be connected to a circuit giving the high resistance reading.

I plugged the red plug back in and got 2.0 Ohms again. When I went to the fuse panel, I removed a fuse labelled CRT LP. The resistance then shot back up to 28.8 kOhms.

My questions are these: what circuit does the fuse labelled CRT LP belong to and why does it give me the low resistance reading of 2.0 Ohms? Also, what circuit does the white and black wire belong to on the positive side that has no plug near the battery and why does it give me a closed (although high resistance) circuit?

Any help would be really appreciated.

Best wishes

Wayne

Welcome to the forums, Wayne.
I'm not familiar with the ED so I have no idea, but some-one else might. I can't even get the Xmas tree lights to work!

After looking at an EA manual CRT LP appears to stand for CouRTesy LamP -- was your door or boot open when taking these measurements ?
..Just a thought.

Thanks guys.

Yes - My door was open.

Next time I get a chance, I will try the check again.

It makes sense though, since the switch to the door would be closed when the door is open, as thus I was picking up a reading though the door switch and and lamp.


Best wishes
