Let there be light!!!

Post by hdv on Mon Apr 25, 2016 6:56 pm

Do you have a panel above the entrance door, about 3 inches deep and 9 inches long?

Is there a group of four buttons in the left hand corner of the panel?

If so, press the top left hand button and a red LED should light up next to it.

You'll then be able to switch the interior lights on using the switches on the sides of the fridge cabinet and on the overhead lights and spotlights.

Or, it may be totally different, but I don't think so.

The control panel above the hab door is for 12V controls, water pump, battery swap, exterior light (on ours).

The LCD display allows you to read the battery voltages, set timers and some other useless stuff more suited to a caravan with external water pump.

All the 230V circuit breakers etc should be in the wardrobe, on the Power Supply Unit (PSU)

Does your van have drawers under the bench seats? ours has lift up seats more like a caravan, (much more storage space)(This also suggests more and more that ours was a demo for upcoming improvements to the 2006 vehicles).

In our old 1995 van the ZIG battery charger was behind the false drawer door, so I don't know what yours will be, some photos might help to determine what you have and where, or someone here might know.

Regarding the lights, if the 12v lights are not working have a look on the bed side of the cocktail cabinet - there "may be" an switch there.    Put there so when you are in bed you can operate lights without getting up !   If thats off no way will other light switches work

Hi roli has nailed it for you after first aquiring my 2000 executive couldn't get the roof or wall lights to work either. But thanks to the help from a friend who lives not to far away who has had several executives. Showed me that under the drivers seat there is 2 fuses .one was blown. .I would never have found them and are very awkward to get to...so then we put the the 12v tv in last couple of trips and couldn't figure out why no lights again because fuse was ok. Like roli says on the side of the wine cabinet if the power to tv switch left in on position no interior lights ..John. .
