MRC Forum / Re: Apologies for the forum downtime

Apologies again for the forum going down, we think sometime on Sunday, 18th Feb - I wasn't available to log on that day so can't pinpoint exactly when.

I was at on trackday with my RX-8 at Snetterton yesterday (Mon 19th) when Rote8, who was also there, asked if I knew the forum was down on Sunday? I didn't know and couldn't do much until this morning when I had to "roll-back" on the advice of our hosting company to a "known good" point in time when the forum was operating. I had to choose 12.30am Sunday morning from a limited number of backups (generally around 2 each day), so I'm sorry that any posts after that time will have been lost  :(

I thought the previous "off-air" incident last week was isolated, but our hosting company are claiming it's probably a coding error on our forum. I'm finding that hard to believe, as the forum has been operating without any major issue for over 3 years and it went down just after the hosting company admitted a problem with their servers  :violent1:

So, I'll need to do some further work to try to ascertain why we had two outages in short succession and try a prevent a 3rd outage.

Morning Jon,

Reference the fans, whist I have seen the fans work on track as I see the water temp rise and fall, I'm sure that no matter how long I have run the car stationary I've never heard the fans cut in.

 

 :icon_scratch: That's odd, my understanding on a stock RX-8 is that the fans won't operate if the car is doing more than about 15mph? They certainly should cut in when stationary else the engine would overheat in a traffic jam. I often hear my fans cut in when stuck in traffic.

Well done Jon, looks like you are on the final stretch now. Looks like a great job you've done there  :notworthy:

MRC Forum / Apologies for the forum downtime
« on: February 14, 2018, 08:13:21 PM »
You may have noticed we were off air for about 36 hours until around 6.30pm this evening  :(

I'm told by our hosting company (TSO) that the cluster of servers hosting all domains beginning with "M" had an issue on Tuesday (yesterday). They fixed the problem quickly, but our forum and website didn't come back up as expected. After a few exchanges with TSO the solution seemed to be to reload from a backup taken about 9pm on Monday night, which has now been done.

Apologies to anyone who posted late on Monday night or early hours of Tuesday, as your posts will have been lost.

If anyone spots any issues, please report it here, but a cursory first look seems to show all is working OK (phew!).

Well, at least we've tested the backups work  :)

Here's the diagram showing 20A fuse feeding the relay contacts.

Note my correction! relied on 3rd party info, just checked the wiring diagram  :-[

The heated seats run through a 20A fuse if that's any help.

I had a look for data on the relay too. Amazing in this day and age of the internet that I couldn't find anything either  :(

Corrected - 20A fuse, just checked the diagram

 ;D ;D Great work there Jon  :thumbsup:

I'm fairly good with electronics, but don't think I could contemplate a full rewire of a modern car, especially one that's been modified, the wiring diagrams being of limited use.
