Long story but i went to Ford and they said no way man we can't fix that for less than 5k.
:shock:

So a friend of mine said try nick at vauxhall take some hobnobs, well that sounds like my kind of fellow 8)

288 dollars and 2 days and It's done.:-)

87(ish)pounds was materials, 48(ish)vat and the rest labour , not bad considering the wing was scratched to fook.

No he refused blank so i sat on the curb outside eating them and crying :lol:

It's a good price, although you'd think by now they'd be able to match the colour :roll:
Yes mr loot i have to spray the wing but then i have to spray the corner of the bumper then the front of the door then i have to lacquer the whole van :shock:
But still it'll do. 25k van there for 12k +my labour. :mrgreen:

Hi loots . I'm trying to do the very neat modification you did on auto closing on the power mirrors . I've got them closing fine when I double lock but I'm not getting a positive pulse from wire 3 on the actuator so the mirrors will not open when unlocking.
Any chance of looking at my wiring diagram to see wher I went wrong?

Can't really understand your notes . Wire 3 from the actuator produces a pulse to the relay upon locking but nothing when you unlock

That make 2 of us :lol:
Are you using an automotive relay ?
I used a reed relay on mine
Loot had to put a cap in to make his big relay work
I don't think there's quite enough of a pulse for a big relay

Pin 4 and 8 to relay output

You have them wired together and an extra earth
Put one one side and one the other of the switched relay output

That I believe is the problem :P

Pin 8 is just an earth anyway , so rather than use 8 I just used the earth. The problem is on the other side of the relay , pin 3 is only sending a positive pulse on the locking motion , this correctly closes the relay and in turn closes the mirrors. The problem is that the pin 3 does nothing's nothing when the van is unlocking so the mirrors don't recieve the earth signal to open.

I'm a domestic sparky so have a reasonable understanding of these things, but the wiring config as loot explained it does not appear to be working , he wired it correctly but I don't understand his explanation

No earth
Pin 3 runs through the relay cut the wire going to it one end one side and the other the side of the relay

There you see I remembered in the end :P
Just get rid of that earth

Ok thanks , I will try that tomorrow . Just couldn't understand that if you cut the wire from pin 3 , then the actuator loses it signal to lock
