Bloody electrics!!!!!

Well took the covers of the rib today to reintroduce myself after winter months. Guess what no power to radio, plotter or pump!!! Everything else is ok so I doubt I will have to crawl into consul after tea in search of the 'vert handly placed fuse box '! Unless others have a different view.
Bu**er! :facebat:

Check you main battery terminals and makes sure they are greased up etc..

I am assuming you had the battery out over winter and its been charged?

Hi Chris
I only had a battery jump pack on one set of leads to my regulator. All my gauges and FF
Work plus there was power to engine as I TT and gave it a quick turn. It looks like something in the consul as only the ariel at the back for radio. Both rad and plotter show siltch not even a flicker so it must be power rather than signal.
Cheers
J

Well lesson learned today. When you organise new wiring set up make sure the engineer tells you exactly what he did. Turns out he put all three on a new biz bar and never said.
All ok thank god

Maybe it was on a 'need to know' basis.
