relay

i had this problem and solved it as follows....

locate the brown relay under the centre console......

remove the relay and take the cover off.

run a soldering iron over every solder joint, this in effect solders all the component parts again.

re fit and try

mine has been fine ever since.

it seems that the solder joints go 'dry' when hot.

this is expained elsewhere on these forums

let us know how you get on

good

glad i could help, although i should not take credit for it as i solved the problem on mine with a thread off here.
But it does not hurt to bring it too the 'fore' again for other newbys like me!!!
