    Glad you found it. I was about to suggest faulty wiring - I recently spent ages individually checking the panel and the regulator only to find (eventually!) that water had got into the cable and corroded it to the point that it went open circuit-ish when passing amps. (Yes, the the cable had been made by a 'professional' using non-tinned wire).
