Some help needed here people- here is my situation.
Recently my 87 3.25i Sports developed a problem with the auto gear box. My instrument light came on and restricted the car to 3rd gear only. Then the problem went away(I'm an Engineer so I know they never truly go away!!)
All was well for a couple of weeks until I decided to give it a bit stick. By the time I got home I'd lost my fuel gauge indicator, my rev counter and 3rd and 4th gears....after I turned it off it has yet to start again. A year ago the ECU blew up(and I mean bang!) and I've got a suspicion it's done it again. Inspection of the PCB will show me but my question is this....can anyone tell me where the Voltage regulator is ? Is it within the alternator? Do I just replace the alternator?
I'm wary of replacing the ECU again without solving the problem of irregular voltages and currents being channeled to it! What can I do ?
