    Couldn't get the Trumatic S3002 to light last week-end, so I've just taken cover off to have a look and give it its annual dust down.

    Found that one of the wires going into the back of the Automatic ignition device & battery compartment (see photo) has come loose & there are three options to where it goes (I've marked A,B or C), begining to sound like a quiz now innit:Laughing: and as I'm not happy about messing about with gas & sparks I thought that some of the many educated funsters out there would tell me where to put it :Rofl1:

    :Rofl1: An uneducated guess but try A :BigGrin: if it was B or C it would be a lot shorter.At best it will light :thumb: worst it won't :Wink:

    Look very closely at the push on tabs, those connectors will leave a mark.

    That's hard luck, they often leave deep scars.

    Is it a "high voltage" wire ? Good thick insulation ? Because A shows a sparky looking symbol. I get the feeling B+C is a paired circuit so needing two wires.

    It looks like the system we had on our other boat, I reckon it is A mate, 99% certain. I am sure we never had anything on B&C terminals.
    But I could be wrong.:Wink: Just as a disclaimer:Rofl1:

    Don't know about it being 'high voltage' but when I attempt to connect it to 'A' with battery in place, it does spark and gives enough of a shock for me to let go !! :Eeek:

    Sorted.
    Answer, remove battery, connect offending wire to 'A' terminal, replace battery, ignite, fire lights :thumb::thumb:
    Now just got to spend hours putting cover back on:Rofl1:

    Did you pinch the terminal a bit so it isn't going to pull off easily ?

    B & C look like a resistance connection...possibly a (fan)motor
