Or is it a PCB fault. If so where can I buy a replacement pcb for a unit like this?

  • Central Heating Pump head and building height (for plumbers/heating engineers)?

    If there is a boiler in the basement and radiators in the attic lets say 9 metres up and there is only a 5m head on the central heating pump. If the pump is in the basement surely it won't have the force to get any circulation up into the radiators in the attic. Does this mean to get a central heating system to work the pump needs to be... show more

I read that this could be the map sensor so I unplugged it. Apart from the service engine soon light coming on and the engine running a little unevenly at idle the car started the same jerkiness but less pronounced at say 45-50. Any advice could the MAP sensor be faulty or what other fault could it be?

So I foresee time spent sitting around in a hotel with little to do as the area will all be shut due to Christmas and certainly not weather to be sitting around a swimming pool. Has anyone any experience of a Malaga holiday hotel over christmas?
