    Hi all
    Does anyone know where the fuse is located that run the front roof marker lights I have checked the lights there doesn't seem to be any power getting to the units it seems strange as they both stopped working at the same time that's why I'm thinking fuse blown
    I have checked the
    engine fuse box
    Fuse box by drivers door
    And the fuses on the Sargent fuse board
    I'm now lost can anyone HELP!!!!!
    Thanks

    We also noticed recently that our front and side marker lights weren't working while on the move, it turns out that you need the 12v power supply turned on for them to work.

    Well, this worked for us (Swift Sundance), could it be the same issue??

    As they are marker lights I would thought they would be taken from a feed off of the side light circuit, Corrosion?

    One of ours stopped working, there was 12V there but the ground, taken from the metal skin had gone. I had to run a wire from skin to chassis to get it going.

    I doubt this will help , but was looking to see if it was possible to google a fuse location , which as has been said thought would be on side light circuit.. the wiring diad seems to show one the front marker lights been fed from different supplies, one from a rear light connector which doesn't seem right..
    says its from an autotrail apache handbook page 61 which im assuming is van you have .
    best of luck..

    The lights won't be supplied by the Sargent unit.

    They will be connected to the sidelight circuit somewhere, probably very badly because motorhome manufacturers are useless.

    A corroded terminal will be most likely.

    That's the box that connects the cab electrics to the electicss loom in the habitation area although as can be seen from above the electrics are obviously not exclusively habitation electrics.

    On my 2007 Fiat based Besseccar the marker lights were not fused, when a bulb went I replaced it with new but one side of the van's side/marker lights rear and front didn't work, I spent ages trying to fine the fuse to no avail so I did a bit of research with Mr Goole and apparently because the loading is low the onboard computer handles the side/marker lights via the canbus system, if it has a problem it just shuts that circuit off. The advice was that the computer needed resetting by disconnecting the vehicle battery for 20 mins which I did then reconnected and every thing was ok.
