  • Thank you for your work here. Could you tell me for the type 2 fuse box (I have the same situation like the picture) the number 2 relay for fuel injection computer and 3 for the diesel pump please. The diagram underneath looks different…
    Kind regards
    Nathalie Wittpohl

  • Hey there, I have the same problem as Nathalie, type 2 for engine fuses, the one for the diesel pump ( number 2 and 3 ) as shown on the picture are not configured as in the shema.. If you can help us.. it would be so nice. Thank you

  • On my Type 1 relay box the ECU (or sometimes known as the Injection Computer) was the left-most pink relay towards the bottom of the picture. The power to the relay comes from the battery via a fuse on top of the battery. The fuse and relay were fine but the bolt holding the fuse on top of the battery had become loose. The van was fine then one day at tickover it stopped and would not start. ODB scans said no ECU present. Odd that it worked for so long and hard to diagnose – others have said check fuses and relays, plus cables to relays, ECU, CAN network, etc. I did all of this and just found the loose connection by accident. So if anyone is experiencing a crank but no start plus no glow plug or engine management lights on the dash, and no CAN communication with the ECU, check power is getting to the relay, then check the relay.
