    Hi Denis, and :welcome:


    Presumably you've flicked all the switches?

    Is there a 12 volt cut-off switch which needs to be on before any 12 volt lamps/sockets work?

    That will be the 12v power supply fuse. They are often an in-line type nearby the battery, but NOT in the battery box. If you lift a seat near where the battery box is, there will be a main inline attached to the floor inside the van.

    After that, you need to go to the power supply unit - there will be another set of fuses there.

    Your next port of call is the controller unit, depending on which type, as you may have a fuse gone there, though these are usually generic to each system ( one for lights, one for water pump etc)

    Have a look around when it warms up a little!:thumb:

    I know your now sorted, however for the benefit of others, there is a relay on modern vans that cuts power to the 12v lights when the engine starts. Have heard of a few people that had issues with this, where the relay failed leaving no lights. You can normally find it near the leisure battery. On mine its hidden in an under floor locker behind the cab seats which is hard to find unless you know its there

    not just modern vans......many UK converted vans have had this relay for years.
    both my 1999 and 2000 kontiki's had the relay under the charger/fuse block in the wardrobe.

    You are of course correct that it has been common since the around turn of the millenium, not sure when the rule changes came in about this
