Car is on trickle charge... it's a new battery, the one MJ advised getting. Later today I will have a go and listen out for the pump.

I have read another thread (Nognar) where similar issues prevailed, also noted that there is also an outside chance the relay could also have issues. Grasping I know.

Thanks for the tips
