so on the mini, (crappy lucas wiring) in the mornings, the radio cuts in and out , this only happens in the morning, but to me, the car beeing cold should have nothing to do with how well the ele. system works right? only thing i can think of is that the batt. is charged by the ride home in the afternoon, and in the morning with the lights on and the heater fan on , the alt. cant keep up, and in the second half of the drive, the ele. system is tapped and cannot keep up with everything running. any thoughts? i know i need to just replace the wiring.
