Fiat Rapido 7090+ newby electrical question
Hi, I have recently purchased a 2008 Fiat Rapido 7090+ and I am just trying to get to grips with the electrical installations that have been done over the years.
There was no manual for the Rapido supplied, although there were manuals for absolutely everything else that came with it.
So my questions are -
1. in the garage at the rear there is a connection for a solar panel, however my solar panel appears to have been fitted via a controller directly to the leisure batteries. The controller is located in the same under seat cabinet as the leisure batteries. Is this electrical instalation correct, will it mean the CBE won't know what's going on with the solar charger?
2. I am looking at installing a Fiama Turbo vent in the bedroom (replacing the current roof vent). The Fiama vent requires a 12v supply for the fan. Does anyone know if there is a 12v supply in the roof already, or will I have to run a wire to the AUX1 port in the wardrobe space? I think I have worked out that the AUX.1 is a +12v supply and the MASSE is the negative, is this correct?
3. Habitation door lock - when I use the key to open the door it feels like its using an electronic motor to unlock the door. Should this door open with the central locking for the vehicle doors also?
There is wiring that comes out of the door (hinge side) but I wasn't sure if this was part of the alarm system. Any ideas?
I hope someone can help me.
Thanks in advance,
