My campervan is new. I find it very difficult to shut the side sliding door. Reading some other reports, I am not the only one. I wondered whether anybody on here has found a cure. Only way to close it fully is to go outside and give it a good pull.

Answers

Quite ofte this will be down to a door runner either going faulty or just dropping.. if it's a new van get the dealer to check this out and adjust the door position. R Evans from Caerphilly

Answer this question

Mark Crossley, South Yorkshire

Peugeot Boxer

Chassis used for an Elddis Motorhome.When in 6th gear and cruising at around 60 mph,the "Change Up" light appears

Answers

For what it is worth, my new van does the same. I just ignore it as I know I do not have 7 gears. Reading the manual, it states it is just an information light that does not actually mean change up, it just means change gear(??), so could mean change down. Very odd. ron eccles from North Yorkshire

I have exactly the same issue with my 2015 Marquis (Elddis) Majestic. Also the battery runs down after a few weeks parked up, so I took the Marqis owners' manual advice and disconnected the battery's negative terminal. When reconnected the audio/nav and climate control consoles were dead. Any ideas? Christopher from Oxfordshire

Ron Peugeot UK and Peugeot France are now involved trying to come up with a solution including a software re-write so I don't believe the problem is trivial especially on a new m/home. On a different forum it has been suggested a new dashboard console is required! Chris Peugeot have suggested to me that a new engine management unit maybe needed (look up Peugeot ECU and BSI).when I googled them all sorts of problems appear to go wrong when the battery is disconnected as the action appears to be part of re programming the ECU/BSI which can affect any electrical item in the van!

Driver's side window will not close. Passenger side seems in order.

Answers

Ken, it really may be something as simple as dust got into the switch if it's an older van.. I had that very issue on my 57 plate.. was told by garage that the switch was faulty and needed replacement.. then told dealer only part.. at £130+vat.. ain't paying that.. so I took the switch out and stripped it.. cleaned it and reassembled.. BINGO! But I did find that the cause WAS dirty contacts inside the switch and was satisfied it was not faulty. R Evans from Caerphilly

Answer this question

Martin Sorrell, Powys

Peugeot Boxer

Power is not getting to the radiator cooling fan. I have tested the fan by connecting it directly to the battery and it runs fine. Checked the connection from the switch in the radiator to the fan and thats ok. NOTE; it switches the negative side. My Russek manual shows a fuse in the positive side of the circuit but I can not find a fuse anywhere, it is not in the passenger side glovebox fusebox. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Answers

Martin, I base this entry on presumption that you have a 2006- van which essentially is same as a Cit Relay (which I have).. in the engine compartment towards the right, there is a box for fuses and relays.. two 10mm screws fit the lid on it... the fuses are not the standard but MAXI fuses. Take the top off the box and the fuse for the fan should be 40/50A fuse.. and on mine it's the third from left on the top row.. there are eight fuses in all (if I remember right).. my fuse blew when the bearings in the main fan went.. there are two fans on a Relay and each has it's own fuse, thankfully, or I could have ended in disaster.

Peugeot Boxer

I have a peugeot boxer2008 2.2 hdi.the emissions light is on continuously.is there any harm in driving it like this?

Answers

Potentially yes... unless you are 100% certain WHY it is on....the ECU could pick up a 'need' to clean DPF and send extra fuel to provide extra heat to burn off soot.. extra fuel if unburned will drop into sump and mix with engine oil.. fill your sump and could lead to over-run engine... catastrophic end in less than a minute. Also, It will prob fail MOT like that. R Evans from Caerphilly

Elizabeth Wade-Brown, Hampshire

Peugeot Boxer

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.

Answers

5w per bulb is the correct rating for these two.. sounds like you may have a faulty earth than anything else. There is no overload cut off... that is what the fuse does (or supposed to do).. check the earthing.. and if necessary wire in a new earth directly to the body. My Relay has the same wiring as your Boxer and I had earthing probs at rear lights... the plugs used are rubbish and make poor connections that deteriorate.. may just be that!!!.. poor connection at the rear light clusters... they are linked to the numberplate lights after all... they come on when you put the sidelights on !!

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 )

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.

Peugeot Boxer

Hi when I turn the ignition on I get a message oil high and when I get 2-3 thousand revs the battery starts flashing at me

Answers

Check the oil level AT THE DIPSTICK. If the oil level IS high, drain some off or you could face a costly replacement of rings or other seals due to too much pressure build up. If this does solve the problem, find out why the oil level is high.. was too much put in at last service or not? If you know 100% that the correct amount was put in, then something as adding fluid to oil in sump and it is likely to be fuel.. caused by overfuelling.. if you don't get that sorted the engine could over-run and eventually lead to catastrophic fail.
