Ted Parkin, Cornwall

Fiat Ducato

I am trying to locate the fuses for the cigar lighter and power socket. They blew whilst inflating the tyres. The fuse diagram in my handbook is totally different to the layout in the fuse box. The fuse number given is F44 /20 amp but the fuses in the box are not numbered. I have checked all the fuses in the box and all are fine. Also the manual shows 25 fuses and there are only 21 in the fuse box. Can you help? Regards,Ted Parkin

Rill, Cornwall

Fiat Ducato

I have just purchased a Fiat Ducato Sunseeker conversion and would like to replace the front twin passenger seats with a single swivel seat, however I am concerned that there may be an air bag connection which, if disconnected would be exposed with a continuous light. Please can you tell me if this model does have a passenger air bag and, if so, how would I go about correctly disconnecting it and reconnecting to the new swivel seat. Please could you also tell me if you think I would be able to physically accomplish this myself or would it take male strength as I am a petite female. Many thanks Rill (Cornwall)

It now blows immediately I replace with a new one. I have checked all connections as far as I can. Is there a relay and if so where is this fitted, wondered if there is a problem there. Does anyone have any suggestions.

What is the green clock sign on my dashboard ?

Answers

It illuminates when Cruise Control is selected on the stem to the left of steering column, just under the lights and indicator stem. Once turned on just push the stem up slightly and cruse will activate. A short upward push will increase speed by 1mph and downward will decrease speed by 1mph. If you brake or change gear, cruise is deactivated until you lift stem to reactivate. To turn off altogether just twist stem to off position. Lance from South Yorkshire

Fiat Ducato

Gday I have a 2007 2.3L turbo diesel ducato currier van. It just ticked over from 399,999km to 400,000km (I watched it tick over) and the odometer blanked out spot on the 400k mark (pretty funny really) does anyone know how to fix / reset it. Most machanics cant get past the fact that it has done that many k's with so little wok done to it and offer no help. The van still runs great with plenty of power but now at 410kms (read the k's on the diagnostic machine) it blows black smoke big time. When I'm driving it, no one sits with in 1/2k of me because of the smoke. I don't know if the smoke is related to the 400k mile stone or just a coincidence. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I purchased it as a demo model at 9,000km and other than ware and tear since new I've only replaced a fuel pump in mine at around 300k k's.

Hi, I have a Fiat ducato 1998 and when it has even left over night or for more then 6 hours it struggles to start, the battery is fine and it sounds as though it does want to turn over but it struggles, and when it does a cloud of white smoke comes out. Is this the glow plugs?

Answers

If the car / van is having trouble to start it points to a glow plug down, It is advisable to change the 4 at the same time, false economy to replace just the faulty one. Trebor from Lancashire

There isn't four glow plugs on a 2.5 Fiat Ducato engine 1998. There is only one. Which the engine doesn't need to use eighty percent of the time - only in the coldest weather will it activate. Add a good quality additive to the diesel fuel plus a cleaner to blow out the injectors. Or replace or tune the injectors. Replace the fuel filter and the air filter.

Hi Often the fuse for the fridge 12v supply is in the engine compartment and sometimes also supplies power to an electric step .it will be in its owe holder not with the vans fuse box and can be almost anywhere depending on who fitted the original supply ,hope this points you in the right direction.

Fiat Ducato 2.3 Multijet Motorhome 2008 (SWIFT Belero 6.8 FB). Having recently purchased this van, I have just noticed that there is only a belly pan over the engine on the driver`s side, with space for a centre and near side cover to be fitted. Should the van have a full belly pan (lower engine cover) and if so someone has removed it? Possibly for cooling? Or is it only fitted with a lower cover on the offside?Cheers Ray
