    Hi

    I've checked the wiring following the simplest diagram and all ok.
    I suspected the solenoid may be inoperative so I bypassed it and immediately

    Sorry but just to clarify, I mean to put a fuse between battery and the stand alone solenoid (that then goes to live on the top of the pump), not a fuse on the side green wires that go to internal...

    Roof relay confirmation

    Hi,

    I took the decision to completely re-wire the canopy - it's nearly done but just need to check some things.

    Greater than its sum of parts

    I couldn't go through with selling my Nova.

    Really I think I needed vindicating that it was more than an ornament, it's just

    Hi,

    Thanks Alistair, yes I'll call the DVLA tomorrow- whether they are forthcoming in
