My welder killed my Vanette.


Post by Jirido »

Hi. I'm new so i present my self. I'm David. I live in Finland on an old junk ship i have found blown up on the cliffs.
It has some work still before running. So I'm a bit stranded on a foreign shore so to say.


Any way..
As my old Hanomag lost a wheel while driving and then got towed away before i had time to get it of the road, i got my self a Vanette cargo with a 2.3d engine.

It was a little rusty so i went on it. Stupidly i took of the positive lead instead of the negative... So baffle and amaze! Now i have fried some electronics in it's bowels.
The symptoms are that it wont glow. And do not start.

So i first wonder if someone have any kind of copy of a wiring diagram that can be applied. I guess it is the unidad control timer that is broke as the yellow cord that goes to the relay don't get any juice.
But it could also be some relay that feeds that unidad box. It has 12v on a green/yellow cord that is on the pin under thicker read one that does not have any juice.

Or it could actually be anything in my mind as i don't know how deeply electronics integrate in this motor.

The solenoid on the pump has 12 - 12 - 9v while ignition is on.


Also there is a second relay with 2 thick white cords to it, beside the "glow relay" that has one read and one white thick one.

What is that one for? It dont seam to be for this..


And should it be feed while driving or also just when glowing?

I also found a immobilizer and some other box beside it that is numbered 22605 0C800 572540..

Whats that and what should i expect from it? /Them?
can i remove the imobilizer while driving if the unidad id dead?

What all do i need to feed to manually override this so i can get around?

I understand this seems mighty confused and its true.

I know i could buy a handbook or pdf or such but I'm very short on money and will probably need the little that there are on spares, buss tickets and so on. Also i do not have any credit card you know :/

But on the bright side I have some understanding of electronics and the thumb comfortable on the side on my hand.

I will be very grateful for any advice or information. So ..

:shock: :shock: HELP!!! :shock: :shock:
