Thanks for the information and sorry for the delay as it's been a busy day for me. If you are not getting a code on the display try pressing and holding the light switch to see if that changes anything and if they fault might display in the hour meter instead. If not what I want you to try is to disconnect the battery for several minutes and with the cables disconnected touch the two cables together to remove any residual voltage that might be dormant in the circuit. Then reconnect the battery cables and see if the system will reset and if so check to see if there are any fault or error codes to be displayed after this.
