sounds like its just been cooked and has burnt out. new motors are available im sure, just be careful not to buy a chinese copy or you will be doing the rebuild again soon.

dont know about antilock brakes on the vit but on my mk1 mazda eunos its a common problem of the abs unit playing up big time after replacing brake hoses and calipers if the correct bleeding procedure isnt followed.
worth looking into the procedure before doing any more work?

is there a load compensating valve to the rear? problems with that or even an air lock there?
might be worth hooking up an easibleed and making sure the whole system is free of air

Of course I'm biased - go get a Jimny - it just makes sense ... go and look over at http://www.bigjimny.com ... there's a few for sale right now at some very good prices. Don't forget that Dave Jones (aka Bits4Vits - http://www.bits4vits.co.uk/store/index.php) also sells Bits4Jimny's 8) Why a Jimny...

hi tom personally, if you intend to do any off roading at all then id stick out for a tin top, the soft tops rip too easily when doing tight lanes. you really do need to crawl all over any prospective purchase as rust can be a total pain in the arse on the later vits. there are some nice, well looke...

sounds like a complete short has occurred.
its gonna be a back to basics operation to asses what damage has been done. start with the battery and work from there with a visual inspection of the loom for burning/melting and onto the fusebox / ancillaries
