hi guys - I have a Peugeot Bailey approach - I have an issue where the leisure battery isn`t charging when I have the engine running. I have checked all the fuses - the habitation lights go out when they should. 
I have been told the split charge relay is under the cover in the pillar next to the drivers seat - the fuse to this is fine. can anyone shed any light please. possible faulty PCB ?

Hi Peter - I am just throwing it out there to the wider audience - maybe someone may have previous experience they could share

All the AS vans of the age of yours have Sargent EC500 electrical systems fitted - what does your van have?

Hi Peter,
it has a BCA power distribution panel. If I could get my hands on the electrical diagram I could work it out but no one seems to have one.

after having sent a technical request to Bailey to no avail - i rang a very helpful man who informed me that my model wasn`t fitted with a split charge function from the factory - been chasing something that doesn`t exist  confused3
The only way to charge the leisure battery is through the mains.
I am going to retro fit a split charging voltage sensitive relay myself to help the LB along when the engine is running.
happy travels guys !
