Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Fuse 22

As a new owner of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage (07), I am interested in whether there is a view on whether to pull fuse 22 or not.
I cant see how it can harm anything mechanically, but unsure on any quirks in the electrical system?

just do it

worst that can happen is eventually the valves will stick open

but it will always sound better

ask me how I know!

Like Graze said, in addition it records error P1488 in the OBD system, but friendly AM technicians are used to this one and ignore it. If you are sort of paranoid you can erase the fault code anytime with a good OBD tool like the Foxwell NT510 with the AM software.

Cheers

I installed a remote switch from cccharger in the UK. It keeps everything mechanically functional and you can have it loud or quiet at the press of a button! Works great and super easy install.

That's pretty cool! So from inside the car you can just hit the switch instant satisfaction to the ears

Second this... it'll take you longer to open the box and read the simple-to-follow directions than it will to install. Also, I'd recommend getting the version that stores the last state of the switch: leave the valve open and it'll remain that way the next time you start the car, or vice versa.

Make an Aston Martin IED!




Exhaust Flaps normal operation when you start the car.

Push remove button to open all the time

@ horsepowerfarm:
I have a MY09 and the code is silently stored but no message or warning on the display. It shows only with an OBD tool.
Cheers
