I have an odd problem just arise with the dash board lights. When I turn my sidelights on, the lights on the instrument panel come on, and I get green the side light indicator light on the instrument panel. But, the lights on the central dash switches don't come on (Hazard, Fogs, Central locking etc), neither to the lights on the headlight adjuster and mode selector cluster next to the steering wheel. All the switches work though. Does anyone know which fuse the lights are on?

Hi I have a fiat Ducato auto roller 41 2002 model. When purchased unfortunately it didn't come with any books on operating anything at all. I am currently having an issue with not being able to get hot water, also the lights go off when you flush the toilet. I am wondering if anyone can advice anything at all or is it a simple case of checking the fuses? I can't remember the model number so I have just had to select one to be able to post Thanks Les

FIAT Ducato

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.

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..

the 2000 Duke and the 2005 Duke are both second generation and should not look different.. in other words the 'upgrade' will not be an upgrade... from a 2000 model, the change in appearance takes place on the 2006 onwards model.

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
