    No Start - No Starter Sound

    Engine won't start, or even crank. Last thing was l left headlight switch in 'park' position a few days ago. My fault but thought modern vehicles had 'auto-off', especially since I don't recall seeing the parking lights after ignition switch was turned off and I was leaving the storage lot...

    No voltage to o/s main beam headlamp bulb

    Firstly - I have checked the S-S forum but no other posts seem to cover this but if I have missed it - many apologies. Secondly - Can I thank the DVLA inspectors at the local MOT station for finding this fault. "Headlamp not working on main beam Offside [4.1.1 (a) (ii)]" Easy - just change the...

    Clock Issue

    I have clock issues on my 2017 Leisure Travel Van, Unity MB (on a 2016 3500 chasis). The digits will show multiple numbers in one location. It has shown 2:10 and 2:20 at the same time. They replaced the head and it still does it. Now they don't want to do anything because they don't know...

During the day, when I'm getting sun and the batteries are running a surface charge of 13.0v or more, the fridge works great. When the batteries come down to what I understand is an actual full...

    The strangest intermittent electrical problem

    I've got one to stump you... I've got a 2004 T1N with the original Becker radio. Occasionally, when it is cold, the radio will come on (only for a split second) when the ignition comes on, then it will go off. I can't turn it on with the power button after that. However, if I turn on the...
