    Hi I’m under no illusion that this has probably been answered but I’m struggling to find the exact answer. I’m learning as I go with my conversion so I’m not the most experienced with electrics as yet (short of changing a light fitting / plug sockets in the house). I want to replace my rear...

    I am trying to wire 2 additional speakers from the roof in the back of my T4 to the head unit (a new head unit with 4 channels). Where should I run the wires, and how? Do I need to remove the dashboard to feed them into the back of the head unit? Many thanks in advance. Cal

    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...

    It’s that time again where I am at a loss as to the randomness of the previous owners electro -mechanical skills 😂. These 3 wires, one yellow and black, one white and one yellow (the yellow one comes out of some black fabric tape with the no. 39 on it) were twisted into the headlamp loom near...

    Hi everyone, Today, I got in my Van and the engine wouldn't turn over. When attempting to start the engine, the key clicks into the last position but doesn't fire up. I can't hear any clicking from the starter motor, it's as if the battery is flat but it has been charged up and is fully charged...

    Hi. Feeling a bit ignorant and wondering if anyone can help please? I'm trying to install my new leisure battery on a split charge system - see pic. It seems to have only two terminals, whereas the old one had three. The brown wire was attached to the third terminal. What is this wire and where...

    Have a problem with my central lock on T4 When I lock driver's door with a key, it unlocks, when I lock with remote, it doesn't lock but all other doors are locking and unlocking again. So it looks like a problem in wire (probably the wire which sends a signal to lock the door), but I don't know...

    What are your thoughts on whether I can power a CB radio from the internal light. I have deducted that the centre wire (red/black) is the live withe the other 2 wires being permanent earth and convenience earth. Is the power enough and is the wire thick enough. Some people have said yes it’s ok...

    Hi everyone, First post here after getting myself a T5 last month. After buying it I was very disappointed by the quality of the sound system so have just bought a second hand subwoofer with attached amplifier. Haven't had much luck finding anyone in Edinburgh who can fit it for me so I'm...
