    From my understanding the FI light will indicate a fault in the electrical system as the blink codes relate to sensors and electrical components being "out of range" i.e. open or short circuit,
    If the ECU protection circuits sense a mechanical fault using the sensors that are monitoring for excessive temp, low oil pressure etc then you will get a shutdown with no blink code but hopefully what triggered the shutdown will be recorded in the fault history.
    This is just my thoughts based on "built in test equipment" BITE that I am used to working with.

    Anyone got a photo of where you plug the cable into & will a 990 cable have the same fitting.

    Under the seat by the fuse box there should be a clear connector with a plug connector in it and yes the 990 cable should be the same.

    This shows you where the plug is and is pretty good tutorial..

    Interesting stuff this auto shutdown business ?? I reckon if I drained my water & went for a ride it would be stuffed when it stopped . But I`m not game to prove it .

    I generally run with mine all the way off unless it gets really gnarly then turn clockwise 1 or 2 turns.
    Those rubber mounted dampers look like the schniz. Mines the older solid mounted type. They look like they'd be a lot more forgiving

    Imagine being out the desert and it does the same thing or a sensor shits itself.

    I can not really see that there would be not many sensors in the system.
    I would be looking at installing LED's to show faults and maybe switches to bypass any shut down scenario's if a sensor fails and after making sure there is not a problem so bypassing the sensor will not do damage.

    Can you post up the wiring diagram ( probably single line ) of how the system works and with sensors.

    I bought a spare fuel pump from Felco on a certain big online auction site...cost was about $40

    Direct replacement for the original pump. Just gonna keep it as a standby. I got free shipping over here but to ship to my place over in Australia would only have been $15

    If any1 is interested and can't find it pm for a link.
