Hi, I have a 1994 hymer motorhome using fiat 2.5td diesel engine. Recently the engine carried on running after the key was turned to stop. All dash lights went out as per normal. I suspected a problem related to a roadpro engine immobiliser so I cut the lead to the stop solenoid on the injection pump and fitted an isolation switch. Heyho all was well I could now stop the engine. However this mod has now failed to work, I guess it's a problem with the solenoid itself. Has anyone any experience of this? Regards Stuart

I need an interior light for my kontiki where can I order one. Thank you Paula

Answers

Pauline, depends what you're looking for.. is it the motorhome part you need a light for or the cab light? Then, is it a bulb for the light or the complete light.. or, are you adding a new light? If it's the MoHo light you need you could try caravan breakers in Blaenafon.. have a good selection of spares and dare say they'd get you new part too... or just write direct to Swift.

Heater selector switch has burnt out can you tell me how to remove the facia panel to replace heater selector switch! Look forward to your reply

Answers

Amanda.. by this I assume you mean the switches in the dashboard. If YES, then this appears to be a massive task that requires the removal of the whole dashboard and crossmember to get the part out.. according to Citroen (same construction as Fiat) but if you really want it.. I can supply you the step by step instructions with photos if you have the 2006 onwards model... mail me at fb1051 at btinternet dot com R Evans from Caerphilly

Fiat Ducato

Hi there, I'm not sure if you can help but I'm looking for advice on a starter problem with a Mondial camper on a 1995 Fiat Ducato. The fault is intermittent and there was a reconditioned starter fitted last year. Could it be the same problem?? KR A

Answers

What is the problem, what happens when you turn the ignition key, doe's it try to start, do you hear any noise from the starter. Do you hear a click but not start, It may be the Solenoid come to the end of it's life, situated in the battery area. Wilks from Suffolk

Anne, it's not always cost effective to use a recon for a starter.. the Ducatos (Boxers and Relays too) are pretty good at killing starter motors on some models. My Relay had a 'new' starter in 2014 just before I bought it.. I replaced it last June when it failed.. two weeks before we went to France in it !! It's been fine since. R Evans from Caerphilly

richard, Worcestershire

Fiat Ducato

I own a Hymer 554 / Fiat Ducato 2.5D it has been left stooed for 18months on hard standing. I have changed the oil/oil filter air filter and battery and it started first time engine runs as normal. However I can't engage a gear when I tried reverse it crunches and wont go in. Is this a clutch or gearbox issue - any advise is welcome. Thanks

Answers

Richard... a common thing when vans are stood for a long time.... the clutch parts need a clean out.... run the engine with you foot on the clutch for a minute or two... then try it.. do a few times...failing that if you can start the van in gear with foot on clutch... it may be the case that your clutch has deteriorated too much tho. And you may need replacement.... but I doubt very much its a gearbox issue R Evans from Caerphilly

Thanks for the advice I will try running with foot on clutch. I cant try starting with the van in gear because it wont go in to any gear. Thanks Regards richard from Worcestershire

It should go into gear if the engine not running.. otherwise there may just be a gear or linkage issue.. unusual but not impossible. R Evans from Caerphilly

It got it moving, it went in gear with engine off then started engine and it went in fine and moved. Thanks richard from Worcestershire

dear richard, when any vehicle is left stationary for a long time, condensation in the bell housing can cause the clutch plate to rust onto the flywheel; or pressure plate, so on starting the clutch the clutch will not disengage , this will stop you putting the vehicle into gear! you can put the vehicle into gear with motor not started. good to hear that the answers helped you cure the problem! it usually is not a mechanical problem if the clutch was ok, prior to leaving the vehicle being laid up, just condensation and rust! happy motoring , eric c strickett eric strickett from New Zealand

Answers

You could wire in a vehicle charger but it would be better for the the battery to keep it on trickle charge when parked up. I have rigged up a small solar panel in mine which is left plugged in for weeks when not in use. Cost me abt fifteen quid on popular auction site. You already have a solar panel...add connections to charge vehicle battery when parked up.. but disconnect when vehicle being used or may damage your solar panel set up. Put a switch in line for on and off R Evans from Caerphilly

Julie, Somerset

Fiat Ducato

Fiat Ducato 1.9 diesel, 1999. Leisure battery fully charged. All interior stuff working (water pump), but no interior lights working. Have checked the switches on the box inside the wardrobe are in 'on' position. Van has been standing unused for 6 months, but leisure battery has been on charge/discharge gadget and is fine (water pump wouldn't work otherwise). Any ideas how to get the lights working? If it's a fuse, where do I locate it and can I use an ordinary domestic fuse?

Answers

If its a fuse it will be colour blue 15amp it will be on the control panel in the wardrobe you have checked, near the switch saying lights. Pull it out and see if the metal strip inside has broken. Only replace with a 15amp ( Not a 30amp. ) Domestic fuses don't fit in Vehicles. Make sure all lights are switched off before inserting a new fuse, then try the lights one by one if the fuse fails again this may tell the fault is on that curcuit, probably in a light fitting.
