Electrical Failure


I am very happy with the mechanics of the vehicle however I have had numerous electrical faults
1. Radio has been replaced twice
2. Interior lights failed to turn off
3. Dash lights (speedo tachometer lights) Failed to turn on when the ignition is turned on. The first time was two weeks after I purchased the vehicle. Waiting to book in for the second time. As I rarely drive at night, I am looking at approximately 30hrs between failures.
The side mirror housing on both sides has been replaced.
Very disappointed in these faults, which detracts from an overall good vehicle.

Date PurchasedDec 2015

Dash light was fixed. I presume it was a loose connection. The young fellow at the service counter would not explain what the problem was. (Canberra LDV distributer )
Overall still happy with the van.

Hi Andy ,
Thanks for your question . to answer your question on the right hand side down near where the lock is to unlock the doors there is a little shelf area, behind this area is where the interior fuses box area is . Also there is a fuse box in the engine bay area.
If you have a manual that came with your van it will have it mentioned in the manual .

Stay safe
