Thanks sunny I will change them when I get a chance I did not remove the battery just the inline fuse the lights are still wired up to run from the battery and still work fine. I do remember the E switch did not work befor I sent the unit off. Does it matter which post the lighting coils go to as they are joined together anyway.

So I got it back together but still no spark on I but did start it for a minute or on on E  I tried to switch to I to see if it would stay alive but still dies I change the condenser wire to the front but the light coil wires are too short to feed through the bottom so I left it. 

It worked befor so can't understand why its doing this. Surely if it works on E it can't be a problem with that side of things. I assembled exactly as it came off with pictures. 

This is befor it was sent off 20200930_221634-2.jpg

 

This is after

Not sure what to do next if anyone has any tips! 

Thanks

I have checked the switch by swapping the wires to other light switch and still has the same issue I will swap the wires from post 2 and 3 and see if I have any luck with that.
