    Hi - I have a '03 T4 with 190k miles in really good condition (no oil drinking or smoking) Just recently had the water temp warning light on - pulled over, header tank is low - topped up with coolant mix (carry spare and oil) Did 150 miles that day with no light back on. Left for a week...
  2. Front fog lamp warning light on dashboard

    Electrical
    Some nice person recently took it upon themselves to remove the front fog lamps and surrounds from our Caravelle. The car is permanently parked on the street outside our house, so if I replace them it's highly likely that they'll come back and steal them again. Therefore I've decided to not...

    General T4 Chat
    Hi guys, I'm hoping to get some advice: I'm supposed to collect a T4 on Friday (2.5tdi exAA) and have just had a phonecall from the seller: When I viewed the van the service and oil lights were on the dash. The owner has had a new MOT on it today (all good so far!) and an oil change, but the oil...

  6. Oil light woes/sensor chronicles

    Engine & Gearbox
    (2005 T30 2.5tdi) The yellow oil level warning light comes up on my dash every 60miles/100km after its been reset by the bonnet microswitch. (opening the bonnet turns the light out as it is under the assumption oil level has been rectified) It's been a problem since my water pump gave up...

  8. Brake Pad Warning

    Brakes
    I know this has been covered countless times in other threads, I have trawled through them but have not really found what I wanted to know. Since I picked up my van a couple of weeks back (a 2001 800 Special Panel Van), the brake pad warning light has been on. I initially though it might be as...
