MG MGF Technical - A spaniard in the works

As you are aware I took possession of may car last week after 6 months in the repair shop, Everything works well.

But then yesterday I put the headlights on for the first time and:

no left indicator
no intermittent wipers
no airconditioning
no fan
no ability to re-cyle air
funny noise when I left headlights on and took out key.

Switched off headlights and all systems are in place.

Any ideas?

Had a new stearing column and new front including headlights.


Probably no way of knowing without it being fully checked out by a competent mechanic.

As everything is OK without the headlights on, I would start by making sure the wiring is as it should be to the lamps and switchgear..


Sounds like a ground fault at the front somewhere, ground faults hide as the high power lights are quite low resistance, so when the lights are off current goes backwards up the wire - if you put on the indicators to the rear lights flash?
