Hopefully that was a cheap fix.

I put silicone grease on that connector on my V50 and also used a cable tie to make sure the 2 halves didn't separate as the barb affair seemed totally inadequate.

It's human nature Mike, you have a Rita system that everyone says is pretty unreliable, so you assume the fault is there. Of course that is rarely the case.

The solenoid can take more than 15 amps, normally only for a fraction of a second while it pulls in, but if it's sluggish for any reason, it takes longer and blows the fuse. Fuses bng thermal devices that heat up over time.
Is the battery fully charged and in good nick?
