As you said David, when the ignition is on I have 12vdc between - post of
battery and + side of the coil. When i turn the key the voltage drops
Another element that might be important: with the ignition on, when i
connect the two hotspots of the solenoid with a screwdriver, the engine
fires up normally.
Thanks for your help!
Thanks David, I'll have a look tonight and will keep you informed. Max
