hey guess, ive had an annoying problem i just havent been bothered posting it before, but here it goes, my vr v6 executive has power windows in the front (i installed them a few months back), ive notice for a while (not sure if it did it be4 i put windows in or not) that i start me car start to dirve off, the headunit idicators power windows and windscreen wipers all fail too work :@ theres no power to the switchs on power windows as the lights dont come up on them, the only way to get them goin again is pull over, turn car off and start car again .. now its dose this probably 1 time in every 3 wks, any suggestions? cheers
check your wiring, spark plugs etc for a loose connection.
ok cheers, wot would spark plugs ahve to do with it? ive replaced them and the leads since the problem started any way and hasnt fixed it, ive had a quick browse and the wiring seems to be in tact ill look more thorough on weekend tho
Did you use factory wiring or make up the circuits? - are the wipers, headunit plus windows are all on the same circuit? The wipers should have a relay. Do you have the right BCM for power windows? (all probably irrelevant questions!)
maybe a dodgy relay somewhere. have you used the orginal holden wiring setup, if so, check the original wiring diagram and see if any of these things have anything in common in the wiring

either a dodgy relay plate that carries a number of relays as the radio and wipers and windows are all seperate wiring.
Either you or past owners may have tapped in to an origin wiring source, cut the cable to put an extra wire in and then left a loose fitting.
Very dangerous and can cause fires, often behind the dash.
A fire is a good source of a laugh for you family and friends when you describe how much you shit your pants trying to stop the car and jump out whilst it burns around you.
did you put the put the windows in yourself
do the wiring yourself, i heard that the series 2 has the wiring already in the doors
yea my series one had the wiring in doors already, i checked all my wiring and nuffin seems wrong. its only done it once since i posted this the other day/week though and i noticed if i left it for a while (about 30 secs) my wipers started to go and it was all good again
ok well its really worrying me now coz i started me car today and made one hell of a noise, the noise like wen u turn the key wen the cars already started
can find any dodgy wiring all fuses and relays seem fine
Starting to sound like a dodgy ignition switch....the actual bit that does the switching. If it starts to break up internally things get switched on when they shouldn't (like the starter). You could try removing the lower shroud and have a good lokk at the switch and also give the cables a wobble to see if there is any sort of movement. Good Luck.
