    Afternoon all! I'm trying to find out if anyone knows where the fuse is for the fridge light on a swift sundance 630g please? My other half has looked at the wiring diagram in the book but he can't find it for toffee! We are also having a problem with two internal 12v lights just above the central dinette as these won't work either? All fuses have been checked throughout and all are fine and dandy. Does anyone have any clues please? We will be forever in your debt and it may prevent my other half from going to the nut home!!! Many thanks in advance to anyone who answers! Claire

    Thank you for your reply but my other half used a permanent live from elsewhere and they work so it's definitely a fuse somewhere?

    the fridge has a constant 12v supply when on gas or mains to power the control.circuit board so I doubt the fridge bulb will be fused desperately, if the fridge works it will.be the bulb or internal wiring at fault

    in all honesty it seems very unlikely that the 2 would be connected as the fridge light will be fed internally from the fridge its self.

    regarding the fridge if the fridge itself works then i would say faulty door switch of blown bulb although there may be a fuse on the back of the fridge accessed through one of the fridge vents.

    as for the lights in the van if they are factory fitted then the fuses should be with the main distribution unit (where ever that is under a seat somewhere i suppose near the habitation battery).

    if they are not factory fitted then there could be a fuse where they have been linked in to maybe behind a switch somewhere.

    does everything else in the van work ?? as if there is something else like a 12 volt socket thats dead then that could be your starting point.

    We have a swift Kontiki and I am pretty sure the fuse for the fridge is in the engine compartment near the engine battery.
    Take a look there.

    Hi, I can't help with fridge problem but just wondered with your interior light , you've got 2 switches ( I know it sounds silly ) but I had a similar prob found that the switch by the habitation door had been switch to the off position, I nearly called Marquis about it then it suddenly dawned on me (didn't half feel Stupid even more than usual). Hope its that simple. Terry:sin:

    A big thank you to you all!! We have finally solved it with all your help! The fridge wasn't working on 12v or couldn't of been but wasn't picked up by my partner because it was plugged in at home on 240v so he just assumed the light wasn't working. He knew it was a 5 amp fuse somewhere but couldn't find it as he looked everywhere. It was only until I asked him if there was any fuses behind the control panel above the door that he had another go at getting the trim off it as the first time he tried it he thought it was going to break so he never tried forcing it before. Anyway, he took the control panel off and there it was a brown 5 amp fuse so now the fridge works on 12v and so do the interior lights above the dinette. Many thanks, I don't need to take him to the nut home now!! Claire x

    Well there you go Claire.

    If that's not worth paying your tenner and subscribing to Motorhomefun and changing your name from green to blue then nothing is, I susspect your looking at the first of very many annoying little things you will need help with, and then of course there's the banter. Subscribing to Fun is as good as taking you and hubby to the nut house anyway, we're all nuts here :thumb:
