Re: Fiat ducato 18 plate

Hi

This is a bit of a long shot, but the sliding side door can look shut but the electrical contacts on the trailing edge don't quite make contact. The van then "thinks" the door is still open. When you try the central locking from the fob, the indicators flash rapidly several times, rather than the long single flash when things are working properly. Sometimes this can be cured by carefully bending out the metalwork on the van body where the contacts sit (it's fairly thin) and/or by cleaning the contact pads.
Thanks varesecrazy thanked for this post
