Re: Strange Electrical problem
Problem is in the RHD 69 Cougar Convertible which has door speakers and Sony Xplod CD
Thought it was a short - but it is only the CD player that is affected.
Have pulled the speaker wiring and it is ok. Only happens with left door, when the car is idling and the a/c is on or if a/c has been running for on full output for a while (only done this once). A/C is run off a relay. Will happen when the door is first opened and then won't repeat.
