    Just thought I’d follow up.

    haven’t had time to check the switch, but before work I started the van, started easily on the first turn.

    stuck multimeter on battery terminal and I was getting 14.46v whilst it was ticking over.

    I will investigate the switch this week, just to be on the safe side.

    Excellent! The voltage you show is exactly correct which would indicate the alternator is behaving itself.

    So it seems you just weren't pressing the brake pedal hard enough. :LOL:

    :cautious: How very dare you sir.

    We’ll never know, :oops: but started every time now.

    I’m glad, as it looks a nightmare to change the starter, as it’s surrounded by ‘stuff’

    pedal switch looks to be worth about 20p so will keep an eye on it. :D

    Thanks everyone (y)

    Hi M,
    You must have a different system to my van, as I don't have to press the brake pedal. If you can find this switch, then perhaps it just needs adjusting so you don't have to press so hard?, not sure.
