I have a 2016 Elddis motorhome fitted with a factory alarm. All has been fine until today when I went inside the van via the passenger cab door.. I started the engine to top up the battery all fine. When locked the van up the alarm set as normal but went off after about 30 secs. This now happens each time I lock the van. The blue alarm light starts flashing after a few seconds - 3 quick flashes in succession, followed by a short interval & then flashes 3 again - this repeats until the alarm goes off. I have checked all doors & bonnet are closed. Any ideas?
2016 = still under warranty.. take it back to dealer.. besides, you ought to get it seen by someone who knows how the alarm is fitted, not how the vehicle works R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi. My 2001 Boxer served me well, still is... Bought new without any serious problems I came across the first one! When turning the ignition key the dash board lights comes on as usual. The fuel heater light goes off and when trying to crank thr engine nothins happens! There is no sound coming from the starter nor any dashboard lights dim. If I try to do this with the head lihgts on (xenon lights) then the head lights dim but not the dashboard. Is it the starters fault, the ignition key, a fuse or something else. I very much appreciate your opinion Regards Kiri

Hi Folks. Checking the 1996 AS Harmony over prior to my first trip in it and I've just found that the Thereford Cassette toilet is not as described in the AS Owners Manual - it's a C3L instead of the C2. The only difference as far as I can tell is where you fill the flush tank with fresh water. The C2 has a filler which you swing out to fill the tank but mine, the C3L doesn't appear to have such a facility. Can anyone out there please enlighten me as to how I get water to flush the loo. Do I have to fill the main water tank and does the main pump have to be switched on. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading and regards to all. Grahame
Hi folks. I never thought I'd be able to resolve a problem posted by myself, but I have. I can confirm that the toilet flush for the Thetford C3L Cassette is supplied from the main water tank in the 1996 AS Peugeot Boxer 270S Harmony. Fill the tank, turn on and prime the pump, press the Flush button on the bog, and away you go. Thanks to all who were about to respond. Regards Grahame Grahame from Hampshire

After a journey the filler cap will make a "burbing" sound intermittently for a number of hours. Sounds like pressure release either low pressure or high pressure, I can't make out which. Continues even after removing and replacing the filler cap. Seems more prominent when the fuel tank is above half full. No other noticeable performance issues.

I have a problem with my campervan based on the 2000 Peugeot Boxer. When pulling away from a standing start such as traffic lights the revs climb but then suddenly drop. I have to drop back a gear and then speed up slowly. It is most noticeable in 1st and 2nd gear.

Hi I have a 1997 Boxer Motorhome, 1.9td, I think its a 230L but that wasnt an option in selecting model for this question. Looked at radiator and a lot of the front rows have perished so I am going to replace it. My query is I thought I might replace the water pump whilst everything was drained, but in my book it says that the cam belt has to be removed, does anybody know if i have to touch the cam belt as i am not to keen on that. Thanks Daven to go there
Dave, on the 1.9td engine you have to remove any auxiliary belt AND the timing belt.. the water pump is toothed and timing belt will have to be removed... but then if it ain't broke, why fix it... if it's not leaking and performing ok don't bother. R Evans from Caerphilly

I have a Peugeot Boxer 2.8 HDi motorhome 2007 with 30,000miles on the clock, when I rev the engine to 3000 revs the particulate/emissions light comes on and whilst on when I try to change up he gears it seems to go into limp mode, it drives perfectly below 3000 revs. I have a had an auto electrician test , sent me for a smoke test, no leak, changed the censor but it still comes on and looses power. It has cost me £160 so far and he tells me there is no particulate filter on my vehicle. Anybody can help please.
Well I can tell you that there is no particulate filter on yours.. they were introduced on much later models to comply with Euro rules. What you should have is a lambda sensor also known as oxygen sensor.. they can fail and give false readings to ecu about the condition of the exhaust fumes... if it is faulty it won't tell the ecu that... so won't come up on diagnostics. There is an egr valve that can clog up and give this outcome, also a boost pressure sensor that clogs up that could also give you issues. You can take them off and clean them yourself at no cost... replace and try. Careful you don't damage the egr valve gaskets.. or get new ones anyway, they are cheap enough R Evans from Caerphilly

I am trying to obtain a Certificate of Conformity for my Boxer Autosleeper Nuevo motorhome. I took the boxer to france and registerd it,now i am living in Wales and need UK plates and the DVLA is requesting a Certificate of conformity,I contacted Peugeot in France and their website is asking for NRE of the vehicle.I cannot find anything to match this,can you help me please?
Reg, contact the VOSA people at the testing depot in Llantrisant.. their nearest test centre is behind Corner Park garage on the A4119. All I think they are looking for is a full test by VOSA to show the vehicle is safe for UK roads... something like MOT really. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi i have a four month old motorhome , Elddis evolution with Purgeot cab. My radio is fine when stationary but hopeles on the road. I have been told that the arial connection my be lose and will find it in my drivers side wing mirror. Is this correct and if so how do i get into the mirror to check it
Prob not loose.. just a silly design issue they didn't put much thought to... many campers have same issue and due to plastic shell of Moho you can't get a good earth for aerial so they made smaller aerials and hid them in mirror housing. To get into check you pull the mirror glass off but expect it to break. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, I have a Peugeot 2.8 HDi Boxer-based Motorhome in which has developed a problem of jumping out of fifth gear! I can select all other gears first through fourth and reverse with no bother. There has been no grinding noises or any other signs of potential failure with regards to the gearbox/selection etc. The Motorhome was bought in November 2015 so we did no mileage over the winter break. Since driving the vehicle, late May, it has done a little over 400 miles. Has anyone an idea to the cause of the problem and if so what would be the solution. Many thanks, Tommy.

Clutch pedal keeps breaking ....clutch very stiff. I've had a new clutch and cable fitted but no different. Can anyone suggest a possible cause.
I recently bought a Boxer motorhome and the clutch was very heavy. On my first few days away the pedal was getting lower towards the floor and harder to engage the gears. By the time I got it back to the supplying garage it completely packed up as I got onto their forecourt. They looked at it and told me it was just adjustment as the new clutch cable that they had fitted recently had stretched. I wasn't happy but took it away to try still very heavy On my next trip out I got stuck in some rush hour traffic and my left leg was in agony and I must admit I thought the pedal would break. After a discussion the garage agreed to fit a new clutch but told me it was normal to be heavy and did not think it would make much difference. They fitted a new clutch supplied by Peugeot and it was slightly better but still too heavy for my liking. I took it home and took the clutch cable off and tested it. I could see that there was some slight damage to the outer cable plastic cover and the metal outer cable had rusted slightly. On close inspection the cable had frayed at the top end. Put a new cable on now nice and light as it should be. So take the cable off and check it for freedom of movement. There are two lengths of cable make sure you get the right one because if it is too short it may not run freely it the bends are too tight. Hope this helps Kim from Buckinghamshire

How do you take the fixed speed limiter off
Kevin, if it has been set you'll need to get it onto a Peugeot diagnostics system.. Peugeot Planet 2000 can be used or Diagbox... you can get these on 'popular auction site' for less than the price that Pug will charge to plug it in.. beware tho the Chinese clones work.. but can only install them on Win XP computer/laptop... I have one.. works fine for me and my Cit using the Lexia 3 software that comes with it.. haven't tried the Pug kit tho R Evans from Caerphilly

A cam follower broke on our Peugeot Elddis sunseeker camper van and were told the warranty didn't cover this as it was caused by driver error. We were on the motorway doing 55mph and the engine started making noises. Has anyone else ever encountered this and been told the same?
I'd find it hard to explain how driver error can cause failure of a cam follower, mate. The cam followers are integral part of the cylinder head unit and fitted with critical tolerances and short of sticking a screwdriver into one through the hole of the oil filler cap, you'll not damage one by driver error. Get legal advice or citizens advice bureau to claim. you're getting fobbed off, mate R Evans from Caerphilly
Many thanks R Evans from Caerphilly. Depending on the outcome I will take heed of your advice. purkiss from Hampshire

Stuck in a 10-hour jam on the autobahn recently and since then there has been an unfamiliar rattle when idling. Can't decipher whether it's the clutch or the engine/drive belts but there has been no overheating, loss of fluids or unexpected warning lights and performance on the road has been normal (no lag or misfiring). It's a 2.2 Boxer chassis with 29,000 miles on the clock. The service light comes on when first starting up but flashes five times and goes off - last serviced at 21,000 miles 18 months ago.

Hoping someone can help.............! I had a new alternator fitted a couple of months ago due to red battery light staying on and battery not charging. All has been well until a couple of days ago when the red light started to flicker on and now comes on and off quite regularly. The battery is fairly new, around 3 years old and heavy duty...100 ah. The battery is reading 13 plus volts. Why would the red battery light be coming on again.........?
