Hiya can anyone tell me why my heater works on number 4 heat but not 1/2/3 heat settings I have a vauxhall combo 17 cdti 05

Answers

Hi, Your heater resistor will be knackered, Position 4 is 12 volt, 3 is 9 volt, 2 is 6 volt, 1 is 3 volt etc. Therefor you will always have 12 volts supply allowing4 to work. Resistor is not dropping the voltage down to slow the motor. Mark from Merseyside

How do I switch off the interior light in the ceiling between two front seats in a Vauxhall Combo van (2011)?

Answers

The switch that you use to turn your headlights on also turns the interior light on and off, instead of turning it just push the switch inwards Luke from Hampshire

A couple days ago I did get a small amount of steam coming off the engine when driving down the motorway and a small amount of clear smoke out of the exhust. This was only for 5 mins or so and hasn't done it since. The temperature gauge is still getting to where it needs to be. Is there any suggestions? Thanks

i need to change the fuel injection timing solenoid, i have had the van checked by local mechanic via the computer and i have two faults p0216 and p0105. he suggested that i change the solenoid (p02160) which may rectify the map sensor problem (p0105). what i would like know is how do i identify the pump, where are the numbers and how involved is changing the solenoid, is it plug and play or does it need setting up . im getting my parts from Colchester fuel & injection. does anyone have experience of this, thank you

Answers

This is telling you your oil requires changing. Make sure that the garage resets the computer on the van otherwise it will keep going off. Douglas Dobb from Surrey

My van is toiling to start in the mornings and left after 4 hours. I have replaced the battery, glow plugs, all filters on the van and it is still toiling to start, it will start eventually. I thought it might be the starter motor but a mechanic checked that out and said the starter was ok as it was turning over once you got started. He even put the van onto a computer but nothing came up, can you help me with this problem?

The clutch races all the time. Friend says clutch needs replacing and will cost a great deal. However black plastic item which connects clutch to gearbox was fitted a few months back by roadside AA when I lost all gears and they reckoned it would be OK for a couple of years. Is there adjustment of these clutches or is the racing of the clutch in your opinion a sign it needs renewal?

My radio has just stopped working. I`ve replaced the fuse in the back of the stereo and I`ve checked the fuse next to the battery but I still can`t get power to the radio. The outside fuse box lid has no diagram to show which fuse is for the radio so I took all out 1 by 1 and checked them, but all look fine. Is there another fuse box in this van as I`ve looked high and low but no luck? Please help, it`s doing my head in using my phone for music

Answer this question

Craig, Nottinghamshire

Vauxhall Combo

I have a Combo van and the pin at the end of the ignition notion barrel has broken (the bit that goes into the switch at the back). I have a new barrel to fit but the only problem is getting the old barrel out. I know that it goes into position 1 then you have to press the tb down and the barrel usually pulls out. Here's the problem, the releasing tab has broken! Now I can't get the barrel out, any ideas guys?

Answers

Realise this is way too late to help Craig but might be of use to someone else. I was told only way out was to buy new column but when I had the old one off I was able to remove the barrel by using a Dremel tool with a fine cutting bit to cut a groove in the plastic housing to allow the releasing tab to slide out. I could have done this without replacing the column. Obviously when it all goes back together it's not going to be quite as villain resistant but who's going to know? TONY A from Staffordshire
