Re: help please

at a guess your permanent live and ignition ACC live wires are mixed up. Try swapping them.

Re: help please

My advise is to remove it from the car, get a refund and spend the money on something else. Why do you need a turbo timer ? Just run the car for the last few miles off turbo and circulate all the fluids.....job done ! It's just something else to go wrong.
