    Big electrical problems

    Hello, Iím new to this page, and new to the marauder world. Bought a marauder with some electrical gremlins. Didnít get much information until after buying the car and it leaving me on the side of the roadÖ guy said he had both front fenders replaced and when it came back from body shop these problems arose.
    So issues are headlights are not working properly. The drivers light comes on just a very dim light (maybe running light?) the passenger headlight has a ground wire spliced into the harness just before the plug for the light bulb. With this hooked up the passenger light works fine, with it not hooked up none of the front lights work(didnít check rear lights). Iíve pulled the inner fender and found the ground on the drivers side fender, cleaned it and reconnected it, no change.
    Also have a p1233 code happening and with the lights on the car will not stay running. And when it does start it runs like dog poo.
    Also not sure if these are related but he says the ac isnít working due to needing ac control module?? And non of my steering wheel controls (or horn) work.
    Iíve read a bunch on this forum about the lcm needing repaired by fastblackmerc but want to see if anyone has any other ideas. Or am I simply over looking a ground that isnít hooked up. Or when the front fenders were replaced could I be over looking a bad wire. Thanks for any help at all.

    Pretty safe bet the clock spring in the steering wheel is broken if none of that stuff works.

    Just the wheel. Fairly common, especially if anyone ever disconnected the steering shaft and didnít secure the wheel from free spinning.

    The rest sounds like fender install issues.

    Right on, Iíll get one on order and see what it does.

    Yeah thatís what Iím worried about I canít find any bad wiring other than whatís on the headlight. I was hoping someone would say itís something fairly simple lol

    Suggest getting a factory wiring manual.

    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Update.

    So ordered a wiring diagram book, that lead me to a ground hiding behind the battery junction box that must have been missed when reassembling the car. This ground solved the headlight malfunction. Now have to fix the funky ground that was added into the headlight harness. Not sure if any other problems were solved but I at least have lights now!
