Picked up a second hand fuel pump and decided to rig the unit up on the workbench.
combustion fan and water pump kicked into life but no fuel pump ticking, so no dosing of the unit with fuel and hence the unit doent fire up and goes into lockdown.
A faulty unit was a known possibility with buying second hand.
When the units are manufactured, a couple of blobs of some sort of glue are attached to a pair of capacitors presumably to stop them vibrating, and over time this affects the surface mounted components underneath.
Changed a few resistors but still no joy, so the control PCB has gone off to one of the people on the rover 75 owners club forum, as he has the webasto diagnostic kit, and an in depth knowledge of repairing these units. Anyway its been fixed and given a clean bill of health and is on its way back.
Ive also had a 99p ebay punt on a single channel 12v RF remote control whis has arrived and actually works ( how long for is another matter). the receiver is in a small black plastic case which Ill mount inside the cab probably in the lower corner of the windscreen on top of the dash, with a small tell tale led to remind me to switch it off .
So nearly good to go with the install, after its been bench tested, will probably wait till the Horses are back out in spring, as theyre in stables full time at the moment to let the pasture have a ret, so no time left at night by the time theyve both been mucked out, fed and watered etc...
