22 March 2013 – Scooter (And Me) Update #4 – Success And Sickness
So, the last time I posted there was a problem with the scooter. It wouldn’t power up. At all.
I’d pulled off some bodywork, but other than that nothing had really changed since the night before. I had suspicions about what was causing it. Those suspicions proved correct. It wasn’t a blown or damaged fuse, but a method of incorporating a fuse into a circuit which should never have been used on a vehicle in my ever so humble opinion.
Look at the picture above. You’ll note that there are clips which attach to the glass fuses. They are then supposed to be held in place by that white plastic thing when it’s snapped over the whole assembly. Trouble is that a slight tug is all that’s needed to pull the clip off the fuse and suddenly you have no power whatsoever. And yes, this can happen even while the assembly is clipped into its white plastic casing. There had been a slight tug and the fuse had been disconnected. I reconnected the clips to the fuses and…
I’m left to question if Lucas Electric has a Chinese division?
In any case, I’m glad it was a cheap, quick, and easy fix My current plan is to ditch the glass fuses and get a couple of the blade type fuse holders.
The other part of the title? Well, that refers to the horrific case of food poisoning I had last night I’m not sure, but I think I got it from the leftover Chinese food I had for lunch yesterday. I’m actually at work and going on about two hours of sleep, but whatchagonnado? I am doing quite a lot better, but it’s going to be a while until I’m fully recovered.
Here’s hoping everyone has a great day
