    Hi all i have an Automatic 95 VS Clubsport i just put a new battery in it and it started for about 2 mins then stalled now it won’t crank over at all. I have no Stereo power, central locking, power windows won’t work & interior light only works from switch not on opening doors. The dash is working/lights up. I’ve checked fuses and main fuse (both under bonnet and dash) all are fine...any ideas on what the problem could be please? Any help would be great

    You didn't install the battery around the wrong way initially did you? It almost sounds like you have had an electrical spike that has damaged some component - like the BCM?

    Have you checked all your fuses, not just the main one?

    Check the condition of the start relay. Swap it with another of the same type.

    VS Service Manual says: "IMPORTANT: The High Series YAZAKI BCMs' used on VS and VR Series Models are not interchangeable due to differences in terminal assignments and vehicle wiring."

    Did you check the fusible links as well as the fuses?

    Post #11 on the link below says:

    "there is a fusabol link on the positive lead that usually frys (100% on the v8's not too shure about the vs v6's)

    just checked my vr and its the little red wire on the +'ive that goes in to a single plug that connects to a white wire"

    Hi i found a blown fuse it was the fuse under the bonnet f/pmp fuse. I didn’t think this would fix it as i thought this was a fuel pump fuse and thought it wouldnt stop it from turning over but it is now starting again. I also realised the 1 of the buttons on the remote was stuck down and fixed that too so eitherway she’s up & running. Thanks so much for your help & suggestions.
