Problems, problems, and more Problems

We find brake lines leaking. We find the steering rack leaking. The controller will not boot up. And we might need a new radiator. Sigh...

You're making good progress. Are those connectors in the steering rack just plastic plugs ? If they are then replace them with metal ones or fit an oil cooler, that's probably what the ports are for.
I can't help you with electrics, I can only think in terms of simple DC circuits !

Yes, I think they are just plastic plugs. I will see if I can take out the steering rack and get things fitted up properly.
