Went out to Mitsi yesterday and battery was dead.
Havenít used her for a while and we have had cold weather.
Put her on charge all day and she started okay.
Went out this morning and battery dead again.
Going to give her one more charge today and if that doesnít work will get a new battery.
Solar panel obviously didnít keep the battery topped up.

Sorry to hear Mitsi has electrical issues, Ian. I hope a new battery cures them. Just don't forget to check for discharge daily! But who am I, teaching you to suck eggs!  Very Happy All the best for 2024.

Seems the driverís door catch needed adjustment as it was moving with the wind and the door card lights were coming on.
Yesterday after charging the battery it was still up this morning, but will keep an eye on it.
Have purchased a 50W solar panel to give more charge in cold weather.

Sounds like good news! Have you replaced the interior and door bulbs with leds?

Now the fuel cutoff valve is not working!
So Mitsi keeps on running when I turn the key off.
She runs on for a while and only stops randomly when I turn the key on and off.
It is probably the mechanical side of the valve sticking.
Anyone know if the valve can be separated from the injector pump to be cleaned or replaced?

Hi, Ian, I found this you-tube video which shows how to do it. Useful, despite being explained in a far eastern language! (Not Hull-ish or East Anglian!) Very Happy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcqg66OFqOU

Well it answers your question, and you can see what it looks like!

Funny bit of video.

He puts a live wire to the terminal on it, to see if it operates, but hasn't earthed it, therefore no circuit!  Confused

Is the body not resting on the engine? Seems to work though!

I hadn't spotted he was holding it against the top of the fuel injector pipes. †pottytrain4
