okay So i finally got my corsa b 1.2 sxi running! after a year of Frozenness
And not working :p turns out it was just the crankshaft sensor

Anyhow I keep starting it every couple of hours and have been doing for
the past two days...

Its very ticky And sounds Very Rough
What would Be the Problem? needs Oil? I checked the Oil And its full but
I heard old oil Is bad too lol...

Also the engine Shakes in the bay when I rev but only at the start Of the pedal
While shaking it hisses. im aware this is the K&N filter but is there no fix?

Ideas?

Flush the oil,
run the petrol dry then full tank and redx
Full service, new plugs filters etc

Don't know what you mean about engine shaking
Hmm like On the first Bit of throttle It shakes Like its gonna stall
You know like it does If You let of the clutch To quick In gear?
I was told its too much air in the system And not enough fuel
Should i remap?

GO outside right now!
Disconnect your battery and leave it like that overnight
Get up 10 minutes earlier in the morning
Reconnect your battery
Start your car
Dont rev it
Leave it running
GO inside and grab your coco pops
WHen you get in your car the ECU should have reset itself and solved that problem.

Reads the sensors and adjusts accordingly
LEDs under your hook, explain..
Always wanted under bonnet lighting but couldnt think on how with sensor or switch etc

Sorry dude im tired
I ment *hood lol

Pretty Simple Really
Battery - Switch - bulbs
Earthing to the car body :)
Using a rocker switch Inside the car On a switchboard I made
Oh and there Is a Light to confirm if the switch is on or not (on the board for when your inside) looks pretty tidy Trimmed it in carbon fibre :)

As for the Bulbs I got them from halfords There Thin Strip's for £20 bit Pricey but there super bright You also might wanna Put a fuse in the Circuit Just in case you get a surge So you Dont blow your bulbs :)

if you want them to Come on by them-self When you open the bonnet
Use a Plunger Switch :D...

:cool:

Jesus.. okay Ill break it down

open your eyes
Pull back your covers
Step out of bed
Brush your teeth
...

Seriously!
Essentially Any Gauge wire ;P DIY BABY DIY!
Fuse use a In-line Fuse :) (holder) Pick one up from halfords £1
lights from £5 - £20 make sure you get 12v :) or less...
switch Is About £1 halfords
A fuse holder will have one wire in and one out So One in from the live side And one out to the Light lol :)

Depends On what You want mate i meen my switchboard Was made to fit inside the ashtray Because im a non smoker So i can hide the switches when I need to by closing it ill also have a Push start in place of the *** lighter (only works when keys are in The Ignition)

If i was you i would make a switchboard First Having One switch on a wire will look ODD lol... xD unless you drill a hole somewhere in the dash and poke it through

Also! To feed the wire to your car interior Just Poke Your hand Down the back of the engine bay and you should see a flap With Cables coming out Poke your wire in there then Climb inside and under the Glove box At the back You should see it poking through Pull it through Connect switch :)

:cool:

Makes sense jsut wanted to make sure :laugh:
Hmm I suppose i could have a few switches prepared for future use, Just need to figure out how to make a switchboard to fit an ashtray ... :shocked: Im pracitcally incapable in every way :D

Under bonnet Lighting
Rear interior Lighting
Switch between airhorn and normal horn, for that ground both horns and have the power source for normal going to positive side of switch and airhorn to the negative yeah?
could probably think of somemore, will need help when i get horns btw :p

and a little red button for boot popper :laugh:

I'll check out halfords but I was thinking maplins?
Cheers mate :D

Halfords isnt as cheap as people make out I meen
My 4 switches on my board came to like 8 F'ing QUID!
Try shopping around :)

Like I said ive got 4 switches ready For my
Footwell Lighting
My Rear Lighting (to light up my amp and subs)
Maybe one for a showhorn
And one for Wet NOS KIT :p

Dont worry that last one was a joke xD

To make It Fit This is what I did
take out your ashtray (2 bolts at the top)
Get An old Piece of Crap Metal I found in my yard
Cut it OverSize And Bend Two Of the sides down
Then get the Electric sander out And Sand it down To how you need it
Ill get pics of mine up tomorrow And maybe a You tube vid :)
Smooth it, Buy Some Self Adhesive Carbon Fibre Replica Stuff E bay I got a big roll for £20, There is Alot there though Enough for full dash

Keep Messing with it So it Fits snug To make it hold in place
The sides You Bent Before Push into the tray So it hold's it in place
If that makes sence?

You know What ive nodded of 2 times allready For short 5 minuite Naps
Ill Upload a Detailed Tutorial To youtube tomorow :)
:thumbs_up:

this is a epic idea. i cannot think of any reson what so ever why they DONT do this in all cars. for the sake of a few £ to the car companys it would be a winner. (recon top gear would love it also). am going to do this tomoro. so did you say that you can buy a wee fuse holder that just goes in middle of cable to blow if need be??
