Thanks all, that is interesting, my search didn't turn up the ones on EBay, price of those looks very reasonable. Some of the ones my search did reveal were 400+.
Unfortunately I'm only near Bootle twice a year or so and not in the near future.

Yes green relay is for fans. I don't think a reset will help.
If you want to test the fans, disconnecting the engine coolant sensor should make them come on.
if you have OBD software you should be able to test the fans from there.

traction control will now not turn off on the switch, light takes some 8-10 seconds to go out now on start up. Have not been able to go to spanner man, and am away later this week for a few days

Very sorry to hear this, sounds a lovely car, would have it and cherish it, but with 4 cossies (2 on the road) and 2 2.3s it's a bit OTT even for me!
Wish you all the best and hope it goes to a deserving buyer who will treat these lovely cars as they deserve.

 7   General / Off Topic Subjects / scorpio at National tyres.  Mar 11th, 2019, 5:30pm

Had a couple of tyres fitted at National tyres, and they check your cars other tyres and other things for free. The car that shows what they check, is a Scorpio. As the scorp is not that common it just seemed strange they picked it.

What can I say? Shocked Peter,
 I look on myself as a "normal" guy who just has the type of car he wants, I have been ragged a bit by those who know me locally as to why not buy a bmw what ever that is (the South africans refer to them as "Break My Window" - preferably when its 2 foot off your tail in the fast lane I presume, they just haven't driven a Scorp so they cannot possibly understand
Sometimes I do have strong views and they do show, but if you got what you want in cars then why go for something else-unless it really is uobtainable.
In work I have dealt with many collectors with OCD and major hang-ups over trying to find a record or similar that does exist... .somewhere and they get really wound up over it, money is no object in the world of collectors so long as the "chase" has a fruitful end.
But things are different with the Scorpio, they are still out there and some in very good nick also, if it's REALLY what you want - go for it there is enough combined knowledge on here to fix most things, and as you say this is the BEST site for a car on the web and the members are second to none! Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
I would like to apologise to all BMW owners.......BUT it's against my religion

Not seen in the flesh but an M registered saloon featured strongly in today's episode of Pie in the Sky as Phyllis Logan's unmarked car.
