  1. I got it a while back as a refurbished unit but for various reasons I've not managed to fit it yes. i set it up for testing and can't see where I'm going wrong, it's hooked up to a strong battery and connected as per the instructions. I've never usedd one before so I'm not sure what it's meant to do, the first time I fire it up after a rest it buzzez for a bit then the pump kicks in, gets faster, coughs a bit, makes some horrible noises and then dies. After that it runs horribly rough and never seems to spark. I've uploaded a couple of videos of it if anyone is feeling charitable and offering some advice that would be much apreciated https://youtu.be/XIAt_H2GgQw https://youtu.be/69_7lSl4LP4
  2. Starting Webasto Thermo Top Z/C

    Hello again. I am having some trouble with two heaters. I wanted to do a gift to my good friend from UK and the perfect gift for him it's a auxialiary heater. I found on internet a Webasto auxiliary heater (not W-bus or K-bus controlled) and I bought one. The seller ensured me it can be started with +12V on Pin1. The story is complicated, in the end i received not one but 2 Webasto. When i receive the package, my worst fears came true. One heater is BMW Thermo Top Z/C, the other one is Thermo Top C from VW. Both can be started only with the car's K-bus. The seller does not answer to my calls anymore, so i'm on my own. My question: what can i do to start the webasto? A new universal control unit is out of question, since the price is already high. Do you know a good priced second hand control unit? Or do you have any advice for me? Thank you.
