I have a 2003 Bessacarr motorhome and am having problems with the fuse for the direction indicators blowing.When it first happened I replaced with new fuse and this lasted for a few miles before blowing again. 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.

I damaged the left hand headlight and the connecting plug from the main loom. I have a new headlight and a new plug, but don't know which wires go to which pin. There are 8 wires on the right side and only 7 on the left. Do you have a diagram that will help? Many thanks.

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?
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. Brian Noble from Carmarthenshire

We have a Fiat Ducato motorhome, (1999) we think the fuse has blown in the fridge but we cannot locate where the fuse is, we have looked in the fridge manual but to no avail.
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.

When trying to start the engine it just "clicks", thought it must be starter problems but it starts when jumped from a little Ford car. Would the battery be the wrong one for the vehicle? How do I tell which one it should have on there?

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

I bought this Swift Sundance motorhome last year and it has been excellent but have since discovered that there is no jack or wheelbrace. I have purchased a 4 tonne bottle jack and have, with the aid of a couple of blocks of wood, managed to raise the front but cannot raise the back?Is anyone able to suggest where I can buy the correct jack for the vehicle and/or the best place for the bottle jack to raise the back?

Hi. I have a 2008 Fiat 2.2ltr swift motorhome with 16,000 miles that has the fuel gauge showing empty with flashing light even when there is fuel in the tank. Taken it to local garage who said it would likely be sender after loosening it and moving float. I left it with them to change the in tank sender /pump unit a week ago today, they tell me it`s the gauge at fault. The garage is RAC rated and advertises as Fiat specialists. Trolling through the web the fault is not uncommon and there may be a circuit between the sender and the gauge that can go faulty but this is not clear. Has anyone had fuel gauge problems on the X250 Fiat chassis? The other thing was I was just about to put it up for sale feeling that it was in excellent order and having been trouble free
