Thanks for that info.
What are the odds the injection pump could be bad? I know on the some of the older 5.9 Cummins itís a common problem for the injection pump to go bad.
Are you sure its supposed to be live to run? Im sure some older volvos were live to kill?
The idea being if you lose your alternator or sever a battery cable out at sea you can carry on, you cant turn it off but it should get you home
Worth trying with the wire to the solenoid disconnected
