    Hello All, I've just brought a beautiful van from a friend of mine, full service history and we'll looked after. I picked the van up yesterday and one hour into the three hour drive home the engine management light started flashing. I pulled over turned the engine off rested it for a few...

    Hello, So for the last year my windscreen wipers will occasionally get stuck, in most cases giving it a little push/nudge will sort this out. However today was quite dangerous, driving on the motorway, sudden downpour of rain and i switched the wipers on but nothing. I pulled over and tried...
  3. SWB Garage (All Versions)
    Hi I’ve just installed two leather swivels, which I’m told are heated. I’m just wondering if anyone can help me out with the electrical connections, there’s nowhere to plug the fitting from the new seat so I’m wondering if I need an adapter or something.. I’m not sure if the seat belt warning...

    Hi all, The interior lights of my 2005 vw t5 transporter are not working (bought the van like that). There is no voltage across the pins in the connectors connecting the lights in the ceiling, this for all lights. In my trouble shooting I first checked all the fuses: the fusecard mentions...

    Hi there, Very much out of my depth with this question so apologies in advance for any faux pas etc. I purchased a 1994 VW Transporter fully kitted out and since purchasing and having trips out have noticed that the Waeco fridge keeps cutting out and then starting back up again. The more trips...

    Hi All, I recently fitted a new stereo in my van and the battery has since gone flat. I am wondering what the common Amperage draw should be. With the stereo disconnected it is 11mA however with the stereo connected it is 88mA which seems high. I originally did not switch the yellow and red...

    Hi all, I've recently started converting an already converted VW T4. Thought by the time I got to the stage I'm at, that I'd have made up my mind on what solar set up I want. But I am still struggling to wrap my head around what I need. I've been eyeing up this set up with the MPPT charger...

    Hey guys, I was after some advice. I have a VW T4 from 1998. When I bought it the previous owner replaced the 1.9 engine with a 1.9tdi engine from a Seat Toledo. The wiring loom has so many spliced wires and they change colours and recently the van just wont run. It seems immobiliser...

    Hi, all Had a small issue with the Dualite fuse blowing on my 1997 2.4 T4... Not really a problem, just whip it out and replace with another, I thought. The fuse itself was oxidised and mangled beyond recognition, so I phoned VW Commercial in Preston to check which fuse I needed. They couldn't...

    Do any of you gentle folk of t4 land have a decent electrical diagram for running all the home comforts of a basic camper conversion. I would ideally like 240v and 12v to run hooked up and independently. Must be some cheaper options out there rather than one of these PMS systems which seem...
