Welcome to the club, Nigel.

 

I have never come across this issue, but I am guessing it could be a poor connection or an iffy fuse.

 

Those with electrical knowledge will also be able to help.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Hi, may have found the problem, where the car isn't used very much, water builds up in the bottom of the fuel filter. As recently bought the car, don't know when it was last changed, replaced it now, seems ok. Nigel
