The SE5a learning curve! - still alive!

Sounds like the Battery Control fuse is the common factor?

Try another fuse - they aren’t all created equal, unfortunately.

Travelling tools & Spares

However many tools you have, you always need the one you left in the garage! Couple of adjustables, a small socket set, tywraps, gaffer tape, a good length of 30A wire, a simple on/off switch with a couple of good lengths of wire pre-installed, some epoxy putty and a Leatherman/Gerber will either ge...

balasted coil

Yep - it'll be powering the starter solenoid through the ballast resistor :shock: Try running a relay if your solenoid doesn't have a dedicated bypass terminal (assuming it's a remote solenoid, then many don't). Wire the relay: 85 - starter solenoid feed (white/red) 86 - earth 30 - feed to ballast r...

I'd like to think I'd done enough, but seems not. Not your fault Craig (in my case) - my procrastination is my downfall here. From (originally) an outside observer only, then CM seemed a very sensible solution. I doubt CM envisaged the need to apply a cut-off of number either, as mentioned by Mikey.
