Answer this question

gavin, Norfolk

Ford Transit

my tipper went up a short way then stopped suddenly and will not go up or down

Answers

If the tipper rose on its own then it sounds like the valve which controls the ram is faulty and has now stuck so the ram won't come back down. Warning: if you are going to disconnect the ram or any of the hydraulic control system make sure that the body is supported with strong timbers. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Hi , my 06 t350 has a problem with the headlights , only full beam works but bulbs are fine so are the engine compartment relays and fuses there also appears to be no fault with the paddle or rotary switch . It maybe coincidental , but the reversing lights have also failed , could this be a bad earth , if so , where are the likely places to find them or do you have any other suggestions , Thank you in advance Andrew

Check idle valve first, then all other electrical connections on the various sensors. I had this with a KA where the water temp sensor connection was intermittent. Paul from Cambridgeshire

Mark, Spain

Ford Transit

Hello. I have a ford transit 2010 mk7 soft ice cream van. I have been having a ticking noise on idle only, I took it to ford garage and came out with a code p215a which means PTO power take off switch open circuit ,they said that they have never had that problem before, they update on the latest computer but still the same. It seems that no one find a solution to this as ther are quite a few on Internet with same problem as me, especially when your garage doesn't even no what's wrong. The pump has been calibrated, injectors are fine, but still the same. The van is in no loss of power dosent fluctuates, runs perfect but has that horrible of knocking ticking noise as the old Diesel engines. Any ideas . Thanks Mark
