Van Van up and running again

Yesterday the new rectifier arrived,

Today we changed the part and, the van Van is running and loading the battery again….

Test drive done, yep, the rectifier seams to be broken, we need a new one

original one per piece 137,- €                                                              Arghhh (searches for some air) , are they crazy?

As the UK are THE VanVan country within Europa iI tried Amazon there, and Jackpot, the same rectifier, incl. postage  67,- €  .

Still enough money, but totally worth it.

ordered, waiting commenced…..

Van Van 2

I spent some time with the Repairs manual and found out, where to check some parameters in the electrics

Unsurprisingly, the first measurment did show a big deviation from the  given numbers.

Without anything switched on, the batterie did give 30mA to an unknown source.  So the systematic check started and was narrowed down to the rectifier.

I started to dismount it, and found this:

After some cleaning it looked like:

Hopefully this did the job, the Amps are gone, but I still dont see any charging.

As it seems the rectifier is gone for good. Generator does provide voltage though.  So a short testdrive will show.  😉

 

Van Van

IMG_20160409_145349822On saturday I exchanged the battery on juniors Van Van, as the old wasn’t functioning anymore,

or so I thought.

Unfortunately we found out, that this isn’t the true fault.

The Van Van stopped operation after 5km travel and only showed the FI light.

 

I wonder, whats the reason for this?  I asume it’s the voltage regulator or rectifier, but thats still to prove.

At least it worked well with a full charged battery, so  I think, I am right. But I keep you posted.  :-/
