Hello lads , yesterday whilst coming back from the shops on my a65 , all above board may I add , the steering column has packed in on the car !
the a65 just died , ground to a silent halt . A few tests on the side of the road revealed no spark at all , but power everywhere else , lights ok , horn ok. So ... I’m presuming the electronic unit ( Boyer mk 4 micro has failed )
Does any one know if Boyer sell direct to the public , and if they just sell the bits I need , and how do I eliminate the good bits and get to the bad ?
Ie is it the pick up or the electronics ?
And... are there better units than Boyer ? This is only three years old !
Any help appreciated
Kind regards
Richie D

Hi Allan,

at least Ernie Bransden states the maximum current though the blackbox must not exceed 5 amps, see here, general data, bullet point 3.

I have never had issues with a 5 amp-fuse in the feeder to the box.

When I turn the ign on and then off I get a spark , but only the once . Then it stops . If I leave it 20 mins it’ll spark again . Very weak.

That "leave it for a time" is a symptom of a bad battery
