Hi to all i am a newbee at this at the age of 65.
quite a dis-beleiver my boxer broke down in a petrol station in the uk.
after travelling 400 miles across the uk i pulled into a petrol station and stopped the vehicle 05 the year 2.2hdi deisel.
However it would not start again.
AA (greatest mechanics i know) say both deisel pumps working but must be other problem.
Tow to garage
garage sais Fuel pumps working but we just cannot start it.
tow to main agent
Mainagent sais
cant fix it too old too complicated and too expensive whilst trying to flog me a new one.
ME p----
Have towed it to my old home in the uk and its is now adorning the front drive
if it does not start it is facing the road for the scrappers.
However i had the same problem with the last two boxers and a good land rover mechanic fixed them for me.
However years have passed and he moved on so I am looking for others to replace him and find out what i have to change to start this.
Any suggestions will be welcome I am 69 years old and the last motor i mechanicked was a mk2 Zodiac back in the sixties.
can anyone help me?
Regards

Its nearly always a wiring issue or the key is not being recognised problem is your van is a hybrid of fiat and peugeot technology so the usual checks that work on a car dont always work the same on the vans.

Try a few camper forums as these are common bases for campers.

Thanks for that but i was thinking its about time to replace and write each item off
I am going for basic.
New fuel filter
take of pumps and wash them out and then
filter the deisel.
After the two profs telling me the pump is allright the service agent at main dealer said the impellor in the pump was toast so it might just help.
to put in new ones, unless someone knows otherwise

In all honesty the pumps are pretty tough the tank ones sometimes fail but you know they have failed as you cant hear them
The engine one is very reliable and rarely fails wiring TO the pumps sensors etc is far more likely or the key codes are not being read.

Replacing things for the sake of it rarely works to be honest and i would never believe a main dealers opinion they are the worst at diagnosing faults !!

There are many things it could be but without proper diagnostics you will be wasting your time there are many things that can be checked with diagnostics including the fuel pressure delivered by the pumps even on a non starting engine as if the pumps are ok you will get good fuel pressure if they are not ok you wont there is no way of checking it without proper diagnostics live data NOT CODES
