Hi all, my berlingo van thinks the passenger door is always open hence when I come to lock it, it won't lock. Does anyone know where and what type of switch is on the door?
I thought there might be a magnetic reed switch somewhere. There is no push button like on older cars anyway.
The door switch is part of the latching mechanism, HTH
The Older I get the Better I Was!
Thanks, is it easy to get to and replace? (It might just need adjusting hopefully)
I've managed to get it locked for tonight and I'll have a look tomorrow

Well the rain held off a bit today so I had a look at the van. The door card comes off in the usual way breaking half the clips.
The electrical multyplug on the bottom of the catch came off easier than I thought so I sprayed wd40 on it and plugged it back in with a firm click. Now it works and I can't unplug it again. Seems like the monkey in the factory never plugged it in properly.
I thought it might be a bad connection because it started acting up when girlfriend slammed the door. She wasn't angry or anything she's just a twit :-)
Happy nooo year to all x
