Default Electrical problem on Scooby

Hi guys,

I have a bugeye and recently after 6 years got stuck in to get her running again with major mods.

I relocated the battery to the boot and ran the cabling to the engine bay.

I connected the battery, however the dash lights come on with no key in the ignition and the SBF6 fuse blows.

Any Suggestions??

I am new here and would appreciate any help.

Sounds like you wired it wrong.

As soon as you do something truly custom, it no longer becomes a "Subaru" issue, and more a "only-you" issue.

guys, I created a custom program for my iPhone that links up through the Bluetooth. It worked yesterday, but not today, any idea??

Same thing.

Start by tracing your wiring from the battery and make sure you only relocated the major runs, no other leads. Maybe there's one wire you snipped off and reconnected in the bay that you shouldn't have.

To true Loyale93. I guess my question is as long as a ball of string.

I have my mate coming round who is an electronics boffin. He will find the problem i am sure.
Let you know what we find

Thanks anyways

Check any aftermarket equipment like radio, gauges or alarm system that may be connected to the parking lights or illumination. It's possible you are getting feedback due to defective equipment or poor install.
