Switched Live Under Bonnet?
« on: 15 February 2019, 11:38 »
Firstly - I'm not an electrical genius  :grin:

I have a solenoid for my meth kit and I need to know if there is a switched live under the bonnet, rather than routing it into the cabin

As the weather is easing up, I am looking to get this done for when its warmer :)

If you have a solenoid for the water/meth pipework feed it needs the signal from the controller not a switched live
