Vito Starter problem

Hello
My 1996 113 Vito let me down yesterday. I stopped to fill up with petrol and when I turned the key to restart, the dashboard etc lit up, but the starter did not turn. I managed to get it going by shorting the signal terminal to the +12V terminal (both on the starter motor). This leads me to think that the motor and solenoid are ok, and the problem is electrical - somewhere between the key switch and the wire going to the strter motor.

Does anybody know if there is a relay for the started motor? If so, and it is in the colloction under the seat, which one is it? (I didn't get an owners manual with the van).

Otherwise, any ideas on what the problem could be?

Many thanks

Dan
