I have a buzzing from the electro block underneath the passenger seat in my globecar. Intermittent buzzing rising to a screech. When the engine is running. The man in the garage had a look and finds loose wire. He said that i can pay a auto electrician £80call out then £60 an hour to find out why. Can anyone shed a light on why this is happening?
I have recorded this but cannot upload it to this thread as my phone won't let me.

I don't think this is something you can tackle yourself. Unless it's caused by a bad connection in the wiring block connector.

The relay (if it is a ralay) could be buzzing (switching on and off very quickly) for any number of reasons.

Yep relay buzxi g probably a fault on the circuit driving it.
Talk to Applejack engineerinh or A&N Caravans, not sure if A&N still repair EBL's since Alan passed away, but they may have an exchange unit.
