  1. Posting this up for a friend to see if this is of any interest to anyone on here. 1972 Lotus Elan +2 , which has been owned by the current owners since 1976 The car was last used regularly in 2003 - 2004. Until recently the car was regularly started, but now it won't start and just clicks. It has had a recent new starter motor fitted. Odometer reads 26602 (unknown if genuine but consistent with old MOT certs 26596 in 2002 & 23070 in 1985). There is a comprehensive file of MOT's and invoices for work carried out under the current ownership. Replacement parts have generally provided by Paul Matty. The car is very tired - used and neglected, but would still make an excellent project for a Lotus enthusiast. If anyone is interested please message me and I can forward you more photos and details along with contact details should you wish to arrange a viewing of the car. Car is located in the midlands. Serious interest only please, as this car has become available due to a recent bereavement.

  6. Hi Simon, I did use a solar charger (fixed up on my garage roof) on my S1 Elise for about 6 months before I installed power to my old garage. To be honest it was a bit hit and miss. It seemed to keep the battery topped up enough to start the car, if there had been a few sunny days. If the weather was not so good, I did have to remove the battery and charge it a few times which was a pain. I think it all probably lies in the quality of the solar panel itself, but I don't know enough about that side of things. If you are looking for something to keep the battery topped up for a couple of weeks or so then solar may do it, if you are talking much longer then maybe look at other options such as maybe an extension lead and a battery conditioner/charger. HTH

    My S2 has conked out

    Just re-read your post and noticed you said Toyota engine. Not sure if the Toyota engine has a TPS so my info may not be relevant.

    Hi Neil, Probably best to get the fault codes read first, as this may give the answer to your problem straight away. If it is the throttle position sensor (TPS) that is at fault it will probably give you one of the following codes: P0121 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch “A” Circuit Range/Performance P0122 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch “A” Circuit Low P0123 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch “A” Circuit High Performing a TPS reset may sort your problem. The TPS can fail and isn't repairable, so if it is faulty you will need to buy a replacement.
  9. Good to catch up with everyone and meet new members too. Thanks for sorting Eddie. Excellent photos from the drone too, cracking work Chris.
