    Hi,
    Our webasto which has been faultless for 4 years suddenly stopped working after heating hot water for shower. (Autotrail). The green light is flashing but no fault code is being displayed and the manual makes no referrence to a fault with the green light flashing by itself.
    Has anyone any experiance of this ! I'm thinking a reset by taking fuses out and replacing may be a solution but dont know where these are.
    Any advice from those with first hand knowledge would be greatefull.
    Oh, as an aside the boiler is full so it's not an empty boiler fault.
    Thanks in advance,
    Philip

    I don't know where they are situated in your van but do a reset by removing the fuses in order. I have a burstner travel van with the same system. If memory strikes me correctly they are a 5,10 and 15 amp fuse. I think the flashing green light indicates it got below freezing last night.

    The fuses could be anywhere!
    The 5 amp one will be near the control panel.
    I would look at where the heater wiring exits through the floor for the other 2.
    I think you will find a flashing green light means that CAN communication has been lost between the heater and it's control panel.
    I would pull the fuses and see if that wakes it up.

    It was 15 deg last night so can rule out freezing. You did not say where your block of fuses were?

    Ok! I've found the fuse block (by the leisure battery) and all the fuses are ok. Pulled them and refitted and when killer switch swithched back on same fault came back ? Reading book again it states if green light. Flashing with no fault code check 15 & 5 amp fuses and if ok take to service centre.
    So, I now need A Webasto technician to resolve this problem (arm and leg comes to my mind now)
    Anybody know of a Webasto service centre around the midlands, near Northants would be good.
    Thanks in advance,
    Philip
