Could have a problem with the fuel pump, partially blocked or seized and drawing too much current thru the FPDM. Also, pinched fuel line on either side of the pump or v dirty fuel filter could also cause pump to work too hard. Can you put a smaller fuse inline with pump motor, so that it blows before FPDM is damaged?

Hello Philippe , sorry for the late reply, but I'll weigh in on this issue...
It sounds to me that you need a new Fan/Blower motor resistor. It basically is a paddle type fan speed resistor, that controls fan/blower motor speeds. (It doesn't sound like the blower motor itself, but it is possible. if it were, that is a easy DIY fix as well)

This is a common issue on many cars after they have aged, so no worries, it's actually quite an easy fix that you can do yourself.
The resistor should be located just under and behind your glove box. it has a plug running to it with a connector which you will disconnect, and then has a screw to unscrew out, and you just pull out of the resistor and replace with one, that you can buy at basically any auto-parts store.

There are YouTube videos online that will walk you through it, it's an easy DIY repair. This is one of many found:


Good Luck,

Hi Glen
All depends what you mean by warning lamp.
Early Alternators used to have a terminal connected to the "Star" winding inside. A 12v lamp connected between here and ground will light up when a charge is available.
But.... the simplest method is to buy LED charge lamp which checked for voltages above 12v (12.5 to 14v} and lights up showing a charge. I can buy a simple device like this from my local Jaycar Electronics store. You should be able to get a similar device depending on where you are

Good Luck
You searched for alternator test

Check your owners manual for the vehicle. If it has this feature it will be covered in there.

That is nothing to worry about the fan remains running after the vehicle shuts off in order for the engine to cool down. Once the motor cools down sensors trigger the fan to shut it off.

LCD is bad, you are only seeing the back light

Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.
