I've just acquired a Ford Sierra based trike, supposedly a 1987 engine /
It's a four speed auto box, and whilst checking things through I found the
kick down didn't operate as it should. Traced the wiring back to what
appears to be a relay, or a timer relay. It's a one inch square box, blue
in colour, with four terminals marked
and what looks like 15.
- - - and the words "Kick down control" on it.
The wiring diagram I have shows an extra terminal, marked 1. - which this
"control" doesn't have.
I've currently swapped this 'mystery object' for a normal 30 amp relay, and
the kick-down seems to work ok.
Will this cause any problems - and just what is the "Kick down control"
thing anyway ?
I've also noticed you can start the engine whilst the gear lever is in any
position - is it just a case of putting a relay between the starter switch
and the starter motor solenoid, wired through what I take to be an inhibitor
switch mounted on the gearbox ?
Thanks in advance.
