  1. it sounds like the plug is not making contact with the car socket, so could be the spring in the monitor plug, not all sockets are the same
  2. also if it has a castellated nut with split pin they are tapered, i am actually going to be doing mine soon, just purchased a bearing grease packer
  3. i think the problem has also had to do with the gps wrno on the 7th of april mainly devices with the global locate gps reciever, other use the sirfstar iii, on my tomtom one xl with the GL the time always reads 00:00 after it has got gps signal and again just recently it kept loosing gps signal on route, or it was off by a few hundred yard and kept resetting by itself, i keep the maps updated every time they come out although not officially supported now, they might release an update for these devices in the future once they figured out to sort the issue as the internal clock still always reads the correct time, but for now i have now invested in a new one just waiting for it to arrive
  4. this will make things a lot easier for deliveries, this would have been handy when i was working for Tesco delivering the home shopping, even customer delivery instructions can be wrong, i had one said when coming from hexham we are on the right hand side, trying to find a house in the pitch black the house was not on the right hand side but the left, it should also help in my new job delivering to new building sites, although to find new places that postcodes dont find i stick it into google and find the doogal.co.uk link as hat brings up the lat/long, you can also get the lat/long in what3words when you hit the navigation button
  5. I have just received the fuel price text at 12.54 with an opology on the bottom with all the other texts
  6. i haven't used the tyrepal but use the snooper tyre pilot, and find the pressures match up with the internal tyre pressure sensors on the car reading them with an autel maxitpms ts401, i inflate the tyres using a ring rac640 inflator, it was just recently i checked this, i set the tyre inflator to stop at 33psi while inflating i was reading the internal pressure sensors with the ts401, when the inflator stops it stopped at about 34.5psi, i believe this is built in to compensate when removing the inflator from the tyre valve as a little bit of air will be released and then when adding the external sensor to the valve the reading on the ts401 then showed 33psi which also matched the reading on the snooper screen, the only issue's i have with the snooper are a couple of sensors failed and wouldn't repair had to but replacements, when the internal battery goes low/flat there is no warning, (there should be according to the instructions) and at the moment 1 sensor seems to eat batteries Now using rechargeable lir1632
  7. pantheon is a website host, had loads of text myself too, just turned of notifications, since the website is down, this will possibly be part of the problem with the repeated texts being stuck in loop, so hopefully once the website is back online the texts will stop
  8. quoting from the letter with card, we are delighted to be sending you a new fuel card and you can continue to benefit from discounted Diesel, Unleaded, Premium Diesel and Premium Unleaded at all Esso petrol stations across the UK and Europe.
  9. my card eventually arrived today when you log on to activate your new card you need to select activate card, then you can put the card number in, i will see if the actual pin works tomorrow when i finish my shift and also you can us it across europe
  10. Just a quick note there does seem to be a problem with some esso cards on the network being declined so far it seems at the moment cards with a date of 22 and on, but just a phone authorisation needs to be done so please be patient when paying thanks
  11. I served my first customer with a cmc esso fuel card he got is before new year, i noticed that it was branded the same as some of the other esso cards and it also had europe, which to me means can be used europe wide, some other esso cards non cmc that i see have national or truck, his transaction went through ok on my end and his pin worked first time
  12. first off i am still waiting for my card ordered on the 6th December, you can get tesco point's using the Esso card but only until Esso stop not sure yet what we will be going to as i have not heard anything yet, i work at my local Esso. for the price rise's this is normal for all fuel cards i will give you a comparison from Keyfuels and this Card starting from week begining 9/12/18 this is for diesel Esso £1. 261 Keyfuels £1. 252 16/12/18 Esso £1. 263 Keyfuels£1. 249 23/12/18 Esso £1. 236 Keyfuels£1. 226 30/12/18 Esso £1. 19 Keyfuels£1. 187 6/1/19 Esso £1. 214 Keyfuels£1. 198 13/1/19 Esso £1. 235 Keyfuels£1. 227 20/1/19 Esso £1. 253 Keyfuels£1. 239 28/1/19 Esso £1. 251 Keyfuels£1. 237 i was talking with a customer the other day and they are on a three week delay through the blue light card, the benefits with the Esso card is you can get the discount on petrol and super unleaded and diesel, with keyfuels and other cards you only get it for normal diesel.
  13. it means if you do have any issues with light's you can eliminate the car to see if the issue is with car electrics or caravan, i also have a trailer board with everything wired, plus the connection for a seperate 12v fridge element
  14. so after a few months of Mcgivering i have completed my trailer/caravan light tester, originally the idea that the batteries were going to be underneath, but just not enough room but his way the batteries are easily accessible to be recharged, the battery pack is made using a vruzend mk1. 5 kit, the box was a maplins battery box, that i had laying around and the fuse box i have riveted to the bottom box and wired to the correct 13pin order and wiring colours, my first attempt at wiring the switches was going to be just using spade connectors, but after mounting the 13pin socket (this is mounted with rubber rivnuts) the top would not fully close, so decided to solder the wires to the switches but i wasn't happy with the finish as it looked too messy, eventually found you could get flag terminals, which made it look a lot neater and no soldering so now i can test everything even the fridge to see what amps are being used too, so switches from the top left main power/pin 9/monitor right fridge power/rear camera Left left side light middle right side light right reverse light left brake light right fog light left left indicator right right indicator
  15. you can do this if you have the autowatch 650 alarm when setting the alarm the lights will illuminate, same when deactivating or you can just press the light button on the fob to illuminate
