I know that's the error code but do you know with my other things that happened which is the most likely thing wrong and how Big a job it is to fix it? BTW it's been starting all day now and working fine so don't know what that means either Thank you so so much

could most likely be your wires, if it happens again while raining have it checked out.

Really appreciate!! You don't think it will happen before then? Or I need to get it checked out even if it's starting?

yes to check it out is always a good thing, but trust me to look for a fault that is not there is difficult.
