08 S-GT intermittent electrical fualt

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, so me and my partner recently purchased a 08 S-GT. Right, from the start there was a dead passengers window switch, apparently common so no issue changed it out. After doing so the drivers side master switch would be intermittently unresponsive (quite often though) and would have no power until you  used the lock/unlock button. Only then would the back lights for the switches illuminate and then the windows would work. This i guess wasn’t a huge issue until this morning which got me wondering if there were deeper issues with the cars wireing. So this morning my partner started the car to go on her way to the gym. The car was left outside so there was some dew on the windscreen. Shortly after she came inside and complained “the window wipers were not working” so i went out to investigate to find the left hand stalk completely unresponsive, no stereo power and no clock/trip meter ect. After hosing the cars window off to see a little clearer she went of to the gym (scheduled class so couldn’t dive deeper). When she got in the car for the drive home she told me that “everything was working again” so now I’m left a little stumped. I took the car for a short 5 min drive after work (everything working fine) and when i removed the key from the ignition the key and barrel were hot to the touch? Now I’m a little worried as to why and wonder if anyone has had any similar issues? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Cheers.

Well if the barrel is hot you've got a short in that area somewhere that should be addressed before going any further. Rip all the covers off and see if you can see any arc/burn marks anywhere on plugs, contacts, or worn wiring
