Re: Solar Panel Not Charging LB

That does rather sound like the Solar controller isn't connected to the LB at all, which type is it ? Does it show the voltage coming from the Panel (be 18-22 volts), does it show the battery voltage or are you measuring the voltage with a separate meter ?

Re: Alternator output

It doesn't bode well for the alternator, but do make the voltage measurement at the alternator itself in-case you have a dodgy connection earth/output between the alternator and the battery.

Re: Fuel Sensor

Have you tried the standard problem of a bad earth on the tank ? Connect a cable to the tank itself and connect to chassis, you can try a jump cable to prove it. There are already suitable holes around the lip of the tank seam to add a permanent wire.

Re: Frontswivel seats

I think BongoSpares fit them for you if you give them a ring, there all made by New Dawn Conversions but the various Bongo dealers round the country will have them in stock for fitting.

Re: Awnings for bongo friendee

I just use the standard Fiamma clamps for the VW T3 and Bongo;

This clamps onto the rain gutter and has plastic protector strips to avoid damaging the paintwork.

Re: Connecting Solar Panels to PMS3

You can use the Solar Charger quite happily with the PMS3 unit - no problems. You can either connect it directly to the Leisure Battery in which case it will charge the LB and power items from the PMS3 when its set to use the LB, or if you connect the Solar Charger to the PMS3 charger output - howev...

Re: Connecting Solar Panels to PMS3

No you can parallel the Solar with the 12 volt charger, if you do that on the battery switch line you can even then choose which battery gets the benefit of the Solar charging.

Re: Fuse 1

Yes the Top Left is unswitched power which backs-up the ECU and Radio settings, disconnect that and the ECU reports a failure of backup! Once it has been switched on/off/on again it will be happy whilst it rebuilds the engine info on the next run.

Re: Fuse 1

FIRST DON'T USE FUSE NUMBERS - they have changed numbers over the years - describe the position Row and position from Left/Right! The Top Row Right is the Ancillaries fuse (Blue 15 Amp) powering the sockets and power for the radio etc. The Top row Left is the unswitched supply and usually the one th...

Re: Electric Blind - repeated stops

I doubt that its the switches from the symptoms, the motors have an anti-stall feature on them to prevent the motors running once the blinds reach there limits, in this case I suspect there is extra friction on the drive chains inside that is causing the ant-stall to think that it has reached the li...

Re: Removing part of a conversion

That rather sounds like stalled motors, often due to corrosion inside the bodies of them, there is a fact sheet in the members area on how to clean them, read that first. The problem is gaining access to the motors themselves with the roof down! However the following has worked for a few people, get...

Re: Harsh gear change 1st to 2nd

Throttle Position Sensor, it feeds-back the position of the throttle to the ECU, its mounted on the throttle body and has a cable attached, accessed as i recall from the passenger side at the rear of the engine.
