Anyone any idea how to disengage the auto locking on my van, it's driving me crazy having to press the button every time to unlock the rear doors. Had the van from new for 3 years and still get annoyed with it, it's a good idea to have the auto option but can't get on with it, it or the van will have to go, life's too short to keep getting annoyed.

please help im pulling my hair out with my dispatch. Its a 55 plate 1.9 flat diesel has been the best van ever for the last 12 months. However recently i took on the challenge of replacing the glow plugs. All went well and it was now starting first flip of the key every morning for 2 weeks. all of a sudden whilst out in the i filled it with diesel got back in and when i turned the key it took 9-10 cranks to start which i thought was most odd as it was at operating temp. Got it home and it wouldn't start at all. went back out to it the next morning and nothing on the key but cranking over and smoke out the exhaust. it will go straight away off a bump start and runs like normal and start off the key again once warm ???? Diesel doctors please help me lol

Hi, when unlocking my dispatch there is a series of about 6 beeps coming from the back of the van. (Short bursts like the reversing beep!) And today when I put the right indicator on, there was quiet beeps in time with the indictor sound? When my caravan is plugged into the towbar, I lose the right indicator along with the beeping sound that you normally get to let you know the indicators etc are working. Everything still works on van! No known problem with caravan so could I have 2 separate issues, ie van electrics And towbar electrics? So frustrated please help......

Cut out, no obvious reason. On ignition diesel heater lamp not on, temp gauge needle going hot to cold to hot, red light in temp gauge lit. Checked fuses, engine compartment fuse 6 immobiliser blown. Changed, engine started cut out after 30 sec, fuse 6 blown. Now it continually blows fuses, not starting? Any help would be great.

Hi I have a 2011 Citroen dispatch 1.9 it drives lovely but has a very annoying humming noise when I hit 30mph to 40 eveytime then goes when speed up. I have had the timing belt changed and all tyres but someone said it could be the turbo as I'm not used to a turbo and they do make a slight noise that some people love or find it irritating.
