Re: ABS / engine management blown fuse

That fuse covers a raft of circuits, including reversing lights given that it hasn't blown again its difficult to suggest where to look, it could have been a faulty fuse or an intermittent short on a loom somewhere. No easy suggestions to be honest should it go again might be worth trying to recall ...

Re: Mystery bulb identification!

The various lamps are listed on the pages here http://www.g8dhe.net/bwm, check the dates as lamps changed in later versions.
It sounds like you don't have a SWAP loom fitted on the LB to switch the internal lights, radio ancillary sockets and blinds to use the LB. These are available for the Bongo.

Re: Cooling Fan Always On

The scavenger fan in front of the engine, is to cool the engine housing and hence its sensor is under the handbrake, it feeds the ECU which controls the relay B7-04

Re: replacing one tyre after a puncture

Wouldn't have thought that amount of wear would cause any significant problem, the diff will handle the tiny difference in rotation speed, so you won't get any windup of the viscous clutch assuming your AWD.

Re: Just bought and now I have a couple of problems :-(

Yes, seen a few vehicles which have been tampered with! Its quite frightening at times what people do or use when dealing with vehicles, happy to give advice these days but tend to stay away from laying my hands on ;-) With some setups it goes on and on and on for ages finding weird and dodgy wiring...

Re: Fitting new seat pads to an existing RnR bed

Mine just rest on the plywood board for the seats and the back part is made with "straps" over the top so that it just rests in position over the raised back sections. When its all flat then the they all butt together to make the matteress.

Re: Hold function on auto box not working

Re: Just bought and now I have a couple of problems :-(

With regard to the Brake light, what happens when you disconnect the wire to handbrake switch ? You may find that something is bridging the switch around the switch as it is so exposed. If the light stays lit with it disconnected then it would point to something else on the loom, which really needs ...

Re: Rear Fog wiring (again)

Yes that's the block for the original loom to switch the front Fog Lamps on/off. It sounds like the front fogs have been fitted using an after-market kit rather than the parts of the loom already in place but unused.
