We recently bought our first motorhome, an Autocruise on a Peugeot Boxer Mk2 2.2 diesel (plated 2007). First trip was a week, on hook up. No problem. This week, the vehicle battery drained. I suspect this is the original battery (43,000 miles) so will replace it. However Did I press the wrong buttons on the control panel in the habitat (manual is not helpful)? Can we charge the vehicle battery whilst on hook up and, if so, how?

Answers

yes you can charge your vehicle battery, simply put the rocker switch on the Zig unit to vehicle, don't forget to put it back to habitat for domestic purposes . if you have driven some distance your vehicle battery.. should already be fully charged......hope this is helpful, frank Frank Glover from Lancashire

Answer this question

Malcolm Baines, Flintshire

Peugeot Boxer

My question is in regard to my rear number plate lights. There are two lights each fitted with a 5W cylindrical bulb. These lights are on the same wiring circuit. The problem I have is that both lights will not work at the same time. With both bulbs fitted, when switched on they both light momentarily and then go out. If the switch is turned off and one of the bulbs is then removed and the switch turned on again then the remaining bulb lights up. This is true for either light. According to my voltmeter there is 12v power at both light fittings so there is apparently no problem with the wiring. Also the fuse cannot have blown otherwise the lights would not work at all. However the switch has to be turned off and on again to reactivate the single bulb. My owners handbook does not show number plate lights in the list of fuses. I was wondering if there is some sort of overload cut off for these lights that resets itself for this circuit. Perhaps 5W is OK but 10W is too much? I have to say that although I have owned this vehicle from new (2008) to my shame I cannot remember noting if both lights were ever working at the same time.

Intermittent fault when starting ! Occasionally vehicle will start but cuts out when put in gear. After about 4 attempts it runs ok but will suffer from random cut outs when hot. Generally it runs fine and these faults are completely unpredictable. It has been suggested that either the Crank Shaft Sensor or The AIr Flow Meter could be at fault ! I have replaced the earth strap from engine to chassis thinking this could have been the problem. Any help would be much appreciated Fred James ( 2003 Boxer 2.0 Hdi Mobile Home 28,000 miles )

I have a problem with my boxer 1.9 non turbo diesel overheating. I have replaced the head gasket, the radiator, the thermostat and the water pump but still no joy. This may be a stupid question but does anyone know which way round the water is pumped through the radiator as I'm beginning to wonder if the pipes has been reversed on the radiator.

I have 2004 2.8 hdi motorhome with 40k miles. When under strain, eg. 3000 rpm up hill, engine management light comes on. Change up gear and light goes out. But change up too quickly can cause engine to die. Changing down again engine will pick up again after about 20/30 secs. Garage struggling to find cause. Any ideas welcome!

Answers

could possibly be fuel starvation.....does it happen all the time or when you have a full tank....sometimes a vacuum is created and undoing the filler cap will release air......the other possibility is the accelerator pedal and electronic management system . not sure what advice to offer on the latter perhaps the garage people may have information but it's worth a comment.

Hi, after rain my heater box fills with water ,is it an easy fix or should i just drill the bottom of the box and the floor and fit a pipe to let it drain away, cheers.

Answers

Hi I suggest you check the drain is clear and flowing well from your windscreen scuttle. If you lift the bonnet and look through the plastic grill below the left hand wiper blade the scuttle box shoul be clear. Also check that the drain pipe does not dump water over the back of the gear box..not good news. You can drill a small drain hose and put a plug in but it is better to lift out the fan motor first and chect all is ok. Also check it is rain water and not your heater element. If its the heater I can tell you how to change it as I have just done mine. Cheers Keith Marchant from Surrey
