    Took my Boxer out first time this year........started right up.......no problems last year.

    I went about 10 miles and the car started to loose power........getting worse and worse, till I made it to a gas station and had it towed back home. I replaced a blown FP fuse, yet it wouldn't start........did crank well.

    Two weeks later I tried again, and can't start the car. I am waiting for some fuel pressure test supplies, to test the pressures.

    In the meantime, I started to look over the electrical system, as it relates to the fuel system.

    What I have found is NO current going to the start valve relay. The power is continuous from the 3rd fuse.......to the fuel pump relay (term #87)........to the start valve relay (term #30). While I get 12V at the FP relay (#87), I don't get any reading at the start valve relay (#30).

    As it is, I am not getting current to the thermotime switch (which comes from the start valve relay), hence my cold start injectors aren't working.........possibly a problem why the car won't start!!!!!!!!
