I just answered a related question of yours here. I see in this question that you are located in the UK. Household electrical devices in the US and Canada are 120V / 240V - 60Hz types. Larger appliances such as stoves, clothes dryers, electric heating and air conditioning equipment run on 240V - 60Hz. Small kitchen appliances like toaster, dishwashers, microwave ovens and common home appliances like radios, lamps, TVs, small space heaters, etc. all are 120V - 60Hz.
If the UK 230V devices operate on 50Hz (as I suspect they are), this can cause problems for many electronics, motor operated and devices that have transformers designed for 60Hz systems. Standard toggle switches wouldn't be a problem (provided you slect types rated greater than 230 V), but electronic types - like dimmers - could suffer from overheating issues.
Whatever you choose should be rated for the same (or greater) value of voltage, wattage or amperage and the identical frequency in hertz.
To your question: No, it is not likely that the Ace touch dimmer sold in the U.S. is rated for 240 volts - unless it is specifically identified for use at a voltage equal to or higher than what you want to use it on.
no diagrams but the reason for duel 6 volt batteries is for proper distribution of power you can put duel 12 volt in it and it will seem to run fine but over time fueses will get weak and start to pop as well as relays. i hope this information helps. J&D services
clean both cables including ground. does it dim any of the lights or do they go out when you turn key to start? make sure all connections are clean and tight and that includes hot cable on starter, and the small wire on starter. if your sure everything is clean and tight. You can try this if you know how, you can chk. starter with a screw driver by crossing the big post to small post on starter but you got to be real careful as not to weld the screw driver to the posts as your are by passing the key and comeing strate from battery, if it turns starter there, then most likely not starter, if you got acess to an external starter switch it would be safer. if that all chks. out then most likely its the starter switch under dash on steering colume. starter is not a big thing to chg. just make sure you unhook battery before you take it off.
