    Hi All, This week we have moved the wiring of the stereo and internal lights from the main battery to our leisure battery. In doing so however we appear to have activated an immobiliser, that looks like a small silver ring with a solid red light on the central dash next to the stereo (this...

    My T5 Facelift is 2009/2010. How do I tell if it requires the 'smart' (i.e. Canbus-compatible) tow bar wiriing set-up? In advance, thanks for replies.

    Some advice is needed please. I want to wire in the headlight washer pump to be active when the headlights are on and activate, as in squirt, when then I use the main windscreen washers. I understand the original headlight washers activate when the lights are on and every 5th wash of the...

    I'm in the process of improving a neglected T5, and I'd like to know a few things..... Does anyone have a pic of how the headlight wiring SHOULD be routed across the front bumper reinforcement, into the nearside headlight, there are fixings on the cable but I cant see where they go, and should...

    I'm so confused as to what I need to charge my leisure battery from my starter battery. I've researched this for hours and am almost certain I can buy either one of these things however I would love some clarity. I have a VW t5 2005 Diesel engine and a recently purchased 110Ah deep cycling...

    2013 LWB Kombi, non tow prep. I've fitted a Westafalia detachable tow bar with a Right Connections wiring loom with all the CAN bus stuff. Just had the van MOT'd and discovered the rear foglight isn't working. The bulb is fine. The light switch is brand new, I've tried the old switch too and...

    Hi Can anyone show me an image of what all the fuses and relays do in the T5 174 please? I believe there's a group of relays under the battery under the engine bay, and also under the passenger seat. Cheers, James

    Hi Does anyone have an image of the wiring diagram for the 174 T5? I particularly want to see how the MAP(Inlet pressure) sensor is wired up, and if it goes directly to the ECU or elsewhere. Cheers, James

    Hi All I'm hoping someone can help me with checking my wiring. I've done and attached a diagram showing my interpretation of what I think it should be like, using a Sargent EC160 Power Supply Unit as a split relay, charger and fuse box - am I correct in think this unit does all this? Link below...

    Bought a new T4 a few weeks ago, fitted a new stereo on Tue and this morning battery was flat as a pancake. I've not used the van much but when I have prior to fitting the stereo always started immediately no problem. However, from what I can tell, the connections are correct, can someone...

    Found that my lack of reverse lights is due to a lack of connector in the reverse light switch in the engine bay. Had a good look round but can't find the damn thing, just got the switch with nothing in it. Simple enough to slave in power to the switch then run it back to the reverse lights...

    Hey guys, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to electrical things in the T5. I have fitted a reverse camera on the weekend and wired it all up so that it works really nicely. I have connected the power for the camera to the rear reverse light wire (green with black stripe) at the top rear...
