I replaced the solenoid. But something in the AMS must been fried, i have since had it repaired.

When the the Ams has all 4 plugs connected the engine will crank over, but the fuel pump will not run to start the car. When i disconnect the Comm 2 Engine plug the engine will start and run sweet has on petrol.
When all 4 plugs in the ams will not switch over to lpg, the relays will buzz when the button is pressed.

Tomorrow i plan to check all the wiring from the Comm 2 plug.

Any ideas would great help.
Cheers Tom
