    Starter solenoid clicks but not turning engine and dash lights on when ket out

    Couple of days ago I tried starting my landy 90 1998 300tdi and all I heard was a click from the solenoid. As well as this I noticed that the dash lights (oil, battery, handbrake) were on even when the key was removed. Fortunately I have an isolator so I can switch off all power. I don't know if...
