  1. Maybe, but an overwhelmingly positive group!

  4. I have been working through various checks this morning, including checking all of the fuse panel wires against the manual diagrams. Red/Grn DME wire out of place on the fuse panel. All good now.... When you think you've been meticulous but haven't....
  5. Me also, but nevertheless a possibility. Anyway, don't need one now. I have been working through various checks this morning, including checking all of the fuse panel wires against the manual diagrams. Red/Grn DME wire out of place on the fuse panel. All good now....
  6. Only thing is Nige that's the very pump that is potentially u/s after one year of minimal use....
  7. What's the current recommendation for a 'best' pump for an '88 3.2? I'm working through my no-start following a fuse panel change. A possibility is that my year-old Bosch fuel pump has gone U/S. I am going to order a new one - if my current pump is OK I'll hang onto it as a spare. I'm up against a time constraint so would rather get a new one here and on the shelf in case I need it. Thanks. @Type911??
  8. That's my next step - it's possible the pump may have failed coincident with the fuse board change. It's a new pump but need to rule it out. I need to confirm that the fuel pump is seeing 12v though - if it's not then operating it with a switch won't lead to the right conclusion. There is an immobiliser fitted but that appears to be working correctly. I know it cuts the starter and there should also be a fuel pump cut out so I need to trace that. But if I have transferred the wires correctly.... More investigation required.
  9. So I fitted my new fuse panel but now cannot get the car to start. I was meticulous in swapping the wires over. I have checked all connections - all seem good. I have checked the fuel pump fuse and for continuity across the fuse panel connections. All good. The car turns over absolutely fine but I don't believe it's getting any fuel. Have swapped out the (new) DME relay but no change. Can't smell any fuel at the rear of the car after it has been turned over. It's too hot to work on it any more this afternoon. Are there any common pitfalls I should be checking at t
