Is it possible to boot the BSI unit as you can a computer, ie just unplug whilst still under power.

I am not sure what you mean, but there is a procedure to shut down the BSI gracefully before disconnecting the battery in this post:

If its not shut down gracefully, then there is the possibility of corrupting the stored programming and settings which can stop the BSI from working correctly when the power is restored.

I have found pulling the plug whilst in use can cure some probs on computer without harm. As the BSI seems to be a computer thought it might respond in the same way.
Thanks for your info.
Dont know if i have posted this before, but i have found on the odd occasion i get a faulty light beep/warning, seems to happen when i touch the brake. How close is the brake light switch to the BSI (very)must be spiking the unit. I intend insulating the brake light switch(cooking foil).
