    Default Wiring diagram for e-crofting module to Xantia.

    I removed the e-crofting suspension module from my previous Xantia some years ago & want to fit it to my current '94 VSX Xantia. Unfortunately I have filed the wiring diagram in a safe place, in fact, a very, very safe place ! I know there are only three wires, red, green, & black, but I don't want to stuff anything up. I have tried to contact Roy Mackay through his eBay adverts but eBay is fighting.

    Thanks Addo. I tried the phone number several times unsuccessfully, & the eBay address message system won't allow my email details to be sent, even when I split it up & try to hide it. Thus my cry for help here.
    Still hoping someone has kept their details for wiring before I go in cold to hook it up.
    Cheers,
    Richard

    That's a regular email address, so far as I know - have you tried it?

    Yes Addo. It was the first thing I tried. The site gives Roy's address, phone, & fax numbers. Leaving a message on the site will probably get to him , but without my return email address there is no way he can send me a diagram. eBay blocks email addresses sent within their message system, even when split up to disguise it.
    I will persevere with the phone & if unsuccessful, try leaving a eBay message without my address hoping he will reply with some details through the system without a diagram.
    Thanks again,
    Richard

    When I googled "e-crofting", this came up:



    e-crofting home

    1 x stop end adhesive guide (via e-mail link). GENERAL ... opposite directions and are fed through outer sheaths onto two metal tracks where they are ..... e-croftingô and reduce repair re-use recycleô are the trade marks of R A Mackay.

    So it looks as if "guides" are available from a website - have you tried this avenue?''

    Good luck.

    That's his standard web site John. When I send a message eBay won't let me include my email address for a suitable reply.

    Thanks, Richard

    He will only let you have the guide if you buy the unit from him. If it was some years ago, you are probably out of luck and will have to buy a new one or find someone who has the unit installed...

    Ah well, worth a try. I fear WRB is correct.... Our very basic Xantia isn't in this loop really.

    Good luck!

    Richard,
    Try this email address roy.mackay@e-crofting.com

    From what I've read Roy appears to be very generous with information, I'd be surprised if you didn't get a positive reply. I've seen info on the wiring but it may not be correct for your car, so better not posted here, Roy asks for the RP/Orga to be able to provide the correct info.

    A very good friend of mine just bought an XM a couple of days ago. This is worth bookmarking. Thanks, Chris.

    Yes, and in his case he had to pay extra for it

    Isn't this the gadget that bypasses the diodes that fail in Hydractive Citroens? If so you can always replace the diodes as an alternative, there are several threads on this subject I think.

    From Roy's description of the circuitry, it is the diode in the hydraulic valve block for the third sphere that fails. His module addresses this by dissipating the back EMF externally with alternative diodes.
    Using the address that Greenblood provided I have made contact with Roy who has replied asking for additional information.
    I will report back with results later.

    I replaced the diodes on the PC board. They cost next to nothing at Jaycar. Unfortunately the photos are on my other computer which has just died today after 8 years. I'll extract the HDD and put it in an external box and transfer it to this computer. There is a thread somewhere.

    My VSX has suspension issues and I think the diode needs replacing on the rear suspension. There is also a 5 fingered MOSFET (?) that can burn out. I bought 5 of them (minimum order amount) for $18 but stored them in a safe place which I have since forgotten its location.

    Sorry to hear about your computer.

    Can't help with the missing MOSFETs, but can help with the pictures. Some time ago (maybe 3 years?) you sent me a PDF with photos & written instructions on how to replace the diodes. Only too happy to send it back to you - I've probably still got your email address on my other computer.

    Now to find out if my other computer still works - in the morning perhaps.

    Cheers

    Alec
