Customer Question

hi having trouble starting my van. i had been working in the back of it this morning so lights were on and the battery had got low. fitted a jump pack and proceeded to try and start, every thing as normal engine turned over fine. one of the jump pack clamps unclipped itself from the vibrations of the engine turning. i think it knocked back onto the terminal whilst the ignition was on, now going to start the van i get the ignition lights on (no glow plug light now) but the engine does not turn. with the ignition on r2 relay under bonnet click very quickly


tested with ignition on 2

f15 fuse found 5v

R2 terminal 3 5v

R2 teminal 1 5v

R2 terminal 5 continuity to ground
