    Hi all, Apologies for the long winded post very much learning on the go Working on a 2000 velle 2.5 TDI - starts no problem but in very low power mode wont do more than 2000 revs. Also has the red battery dash warning light despite brand new fully charged battery. I have the rosstech scan...

    Howdy folks, 1st time poster and pretty new to the T4 scene, really hoping someone has had a similar Experience! In a nutshell, removed previous aftermarket head unit and put a shiny new 1 in but it didn't work. Traced it to a blown fuse, no worries. Replaced the fuse and pop it sparked and...

    Hi Everyone, The battery light on my 1.9tdi T5 is permanently on. I recently changed the alternator as the last one failed. When I started the van the light went out for a few seconds then came back on and has stayed on ever since. I am registering 14+ volts when the van is running. I have tried...

    Hello. First time poster here so be kind. Does anyone know if you can use a 4gauge tinned ofc power wire as the main power lead going from your starter battery to your leisure battery via a split charger? I have a 2005 VW T5 LWB and it already has one installed and run through the van to power...

    Hey everyone - I've just installed the lighting in my van. Went for touch-sensitive Dimatec Spa LEDs, mainly so that I can vary the number of lights that are on. I've rigged a switch straight off the regulator so that I can turn all the lights off. My main questions are: 1) Is there a way to...

    Hi, Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've done an extensive search of this forum, other forums and the internet to try and find someone with similar problem or can help. I have a t5.1 caravelle 2011 that has been converted to a WAV for my wife. If its left for about a week, the...

    Been looking around for a while for a thread on this but can't find one. After finishing fitting a boost gauge and then doing fuel pump, turbo and 5th gear mod I now want to know what the main battery and leisure battery are doing by means of a volt gauge and amp gauge. Can anyone tell me a...

    I have a Waeco Cool Matic CR 65 about 4 years old and it has just started to not turn off even when the dial is at 0. You can turn the dial clockwise and here the condenser click on and then off. But when you go back to it later, it's come on??? Anybody had a similar situation? Any...

    I'm in the process of wiring in fog lamps. I went to a VW dealer and asked for repair wires, they could supply me with a pack of five wires and five connectors for the switch at £27. That price is ridiculous. I need versions of the pictured connectors, both male and female and the rubber plugs...

    Hi all, been having a nightmare with my van the last week! recently my van has been occasionally into limp mode whilst driving (could have been down to leaky fuel rail on engine which is now fixed) and then the other day whilst driving along fine the console lit up like a christmas tree but...

    Getting the ABS and stability light coming on when the sterreing is on full lock, then randomely goes out. Scanned the fault codes and directed to left front wheel ABS fault. So changed the speed sensor, no joy, then replaced the plug and a short length of cable, still no joy. My question is it...

    Hello all First post so forgive my ignorance! :ILU: Considering installing a second battery with a split charge system - questions are: If I want my current van stereo and amp set-up to run off the leisure/second battery what do I need to do? Presumably I need to re-connect to new battery...

    Hello all. I'm about to order a leisure battery from my local garage as I cant get one delivered to me directly from mainland UK. Appreciate there are lots of threads on the subject of leisure batteries but can someone summerise the model/spec/size I should be aiming for to go under the front...

    Hi. I've had an intermittent fault with my 08 1.9 T5 for a while (I'm guessing its electrical so I've put it in this forum hope thats correct). Every now and then it just won't start. It turns over but no sign of firing. (glow light goes out as normal before turning over) Then usually after...

    Hey! I've just got myself an ex-RAC T5, 61 plate. I've stripped the van down and was going to have a pop at the electrics myself but have now decided against it. Not too confident so I'd rather leave it in the hands of someone who is confident. Can anyone recommend someone local to me? I see...

    Hi all, we've just got our first T5, and want to have the electrics checked over and a couple of repairs made. As my knowledge of auto electrics is pretty much zero, we'd prefer to get it looked at by someone who knows what they're doing, and can sign off the conversion we have. We're in Essex...

    I am trying to get everything down to 12v to limit the need for 240v hook up. I tested my Pico M400 projector last night and it works with the Dandy Stereo which is a result. However I am looking to use my leisure battery if possible to power the Pico but the power supply and input voltage...

    Hi. I need to get a cable through from the engine bay to the rear of the glove box. What is the best route to take that doesn't involve a total dismantling of the dash? I need to take out the Glove box of course and I know there is a panel underneath the dash but I do not want to take any more...
