from Warrington


Uncertain on battery location on the Sigma but it shared it body with the Windsor and our battery is under the RH bench seat.
Failing that it could be under the drivers seat.

Is the control panel set for the habitation battery?

On our Inca it was under a wooden cover under the offside bench seat, front LH corner.

Thats where it is on the Windsor.  The Sigma and Windsor were the same van but on different chassis.  The Sigma was renamed the Broadway after a short period

Leisure battery should be under the long bench seat, incased in a wooden box, just as Roger and Peter have stated.

When you've replaced the battery in the touch panel, Go into settings and you will see two of the highlighted squares one will say front and the other will say rear, If they are not showing a thick black horizontal line it means your front and rear 12v is switched off, just press on the squares, once the thick black line appears the 12v should work, And yes the battery is under the long seat by the wardrobe in the wooden box like others have already stated. Any problems just PM me with your phone no/  cheers Derek

No problems, Is there nothing at all on the screen??, plus once you have turned the 12v on you should have a remote control fob which works the main 12v fluorescent lights and the awning light

If it's stood for that long, get rid of the battery now and get yourself a Banner bull 110ah or 135ah, you definitely need a new one

Check out the small battery in the control,panel, its a CR 1620, just prize of the front surrounding frame on the control panel,  unscrew the two screws and the panel should come out of its slot, the battery is in the back, its held in by a small spring.
I had to change mine last month.
