I went into my motorhome and the driver and passenger windows have stopped working, also the passenger and driver side mirrors have stopped working. I have had an auto electrician check the fuses, he said they were ok in the engine and at the side panel. Can anyone help me what the problem can be? So frustrating.

Answer this question

Graham Kay, Spain

Peugeot Boxer

I have a Peugeot 'pilote' campervan 1997 2.5 ltr diesel on a Boxer chassis, 65000 miles on the clock. I'm experiencing big problems with the general electrics, thought the battery was flat, charged it but still dead as a doornail. The hazard flasher works but that`s it. I see from service history that about ten years ago she had a new ignition unit installed, is this a common fault? Also when we bought it 6 years ago we had a class A alarm fitted, could this be causing problems with the immobiliser? Could mice eat through cables sufficient to cause this sort of problem? If you can narrow down the problem would be most grateful .. .thanks, Graham

Answer this question

nicola, Suffolk

Peugeot Boxer

Have been unable to find cause of misfiring on 1995 boxer. Have replaced coilpack, plugs and leads. Ran great the day these were replaced, then back to misfiring again the next day. Fairly confident that fuel is getting through, could it be a head gasket leak? Has anyone else had similar problems? There is nowhere to plug in a diagnostic tool on this primitive engine. Any help appreciated!

Answers

Had the same problem with our 2002 Autocruise Starspirit, it started misfiring so off to the mechanics who found that the head gasket had split between 2 and 3 which meant money had to be spent putting it right. Now the engine is hunting on idle which is possibly one of the sensors, has anyone had the same problem? Richard Williams from West Sussex

Hi, not sure the Model type's correct, but it's a 1.9 Turbo Diesel, 1998, Chassis Cab, & it's got a stuck clutch. It has stuck a few times since I bought it 20 months ago, but would normally jolt free, by depressing clutch pedal & engaging either 1st or reverse, then starting up. A quick judder & it would release. But not now. I've repeated the above several times & I don't want to damage anything. Is this common? Can I fix this myself? Can you advise please?

Has anybody got any ideas?? As I am starting to run out of ideas Thanks Simon

Answers

if this is accompanied by a odd smell. it might the heater matrix has leaked into the heat unit. solution 1 fit new heater matrix. cost loads. solution 2 drill a 10 mm hole at the lowest point in the passenger foot well. its the ridge that sticks down. make sure you catch all the water etc that drains out. cost very cheap. there is nothing to hit with the drill inside the heater here. mickdb de buid from Kildare
