    The spots probably has their own fuse - check the fusebox to see if thereís one and that itís ok? Otherwise an ECU programming issue but doubt itÖ

    Re: My energy journey (thus far)

    Donít do it. Get a Pure Sine. Cheap options available - Mecer has a 3kva 24v for around R5.5k, can probably get R1.5k for your inverter.
