PostSubject: warning lights wont go off when start van   Fri Sep 30, 2011 1:41 pm

Hello all ,newbie to forum hope someone can help with my problem scratch

i have a 1992/3 hi ace campervan 2.7 diesel manual (was jap import) problem just come on which is baffling me

when start the van runs perfect but all warning lights dont go off - the radiator sign + the oil can sign + timing belt sign all stay on and dont go off

i have checked under dash fuses they are all ok ,also checked the fan belt which runs on the adjustable wheel at the bottom underneath the alternator,this seems fine (reason checked this was a freind had same problem which was caused by a very loose belt)

any advice/suggestions would be extremely wellcomed Smile

many thanks in advance alan

hi and welcome to the forum.
ok stupid question have you checked the oil and water levels?
also the timing belt light is telling you that it is time to change it. it needs changing every 100,000 kms
when was this last changed?

thanks for reply wish it was that simple a fix - timing belt been done - also checked main 3 fuses in battery compartment they are all intact -the lights appeared simultaniously - must be related to alternator system the controls warning lamps as mentioned in another members post with same problem ,not sure how to test or where anything else is that could cause fault

cheers alan

yes checked dash fuses as per first post .

the problem - according to other info sources is >>>>> the type of alternator on this engine is unusual in that it is earthed through the alternator brushes ,and it is a very common fault for all lights to show in this manner,

the brushes are located in their own compartment and can be replaced without having to take alternator off.

i hope that this info is helpfull to anyone getting the same problem in the future

Happy days Very Happy

hello again sunny

what a result -removed drivers seat -removed engine /floor panel /undid handbrake cable this leaves

nice clear run at the alternator ............ went to undo 10 mm nut on what looks like earth strap

it was barely tight ! nipped up gently - started van all lights went out as they should ,so nipped up secure

tried starting a good 10 times just to be sure -alls well again including battery now charging again.


not normally so fortunate ,but why look a gift horse in the mouth

hope this helps someone in the future who has same problem

cheers al Very Happy

I had this problem with the warning lights not going off when the van is started. My van is a 1997 Hiace Regius. The info in this forum led me to check the lead to the alternator which was tight and OK. When i looked at the wiring harness from the back of the alternator I found that the loom had been chafing on part of the power brake gear just below the brake reservoir. I inspected the loom and found a white wire had been worn completely through and 2 others were showing bare copper as well. I spliced a repair into the broken white wire and then taped the loom up away from the power braking equipment. YAY...problem has disappeared...the warning lights are now better behaved and that annoying continuous beep has gone.

Thanks Mayfair. I have random lights and alarm going off sporadically when I start my beast, but a quick rev and they go out. It's not a constant thing but could be related to the alternator so I'll have a look like you suggested. Gosh I hope that drivers seat comes out easily.
