Run the heater and then plug in he iid, go to live data and see what your temp is on the fbh screen. After 20 mins I would expect to see 40 degree plus if it’s working correctly.

Hi Pete

Which of the many Live Values options do I want please?

If I click on Live Values there is: select live values, view logs and unit conversions.

Presumably I need select select Live Values there is then: tested values and untested values... which do I want please?

If I click on untested values there is then an option for Ahcm auxilary heater, but then within this there are many options, I’m guessing I want external temperature???

The engine is cold and I haven’t run the heater (was just seeing what options I would need for the weekend) the current temp is 7c which sounds about right.

Is all the above correct or am I way off?

Many thanks

Mark

Yes your on the right path Thumbs Up

Can’t remember exactly where I go in the menus with out it in front of me but any menu where you can see the water temp, either in the engine or the heater, will show you if it’s working. If you go into the “tested” part and engine then you will definitely be able to see what temp the coolant is at.

If I get time I’ll try to do a video showing where to go.

Many thanks Pete

Would really appreciate that if you could find the time please, or otherwise just a few screen shots would be great please.

From what could see, the Tested options seemed to infer I had to tell the IID that I wanted to test it, rather than it giving me tested values, if that makes sense?

(You’re not Pete from BAS are you?)

Thanks again

Mark

So just a quick video this morning showing where to go to check the coolant temp in the fbh. I only had time to run it for about 10mins using the altox but as you can see the temp has increased to 40 degrees showing that it’s working.

And now I’m not Pete Bell, he’s many many many pay grades above me Thumbs Up

Thanks Pete, that’s very kind of you and very useful, I will give it a go at the weekend!

So you also work at BAS then?

Thanks again

No, nothing to do with bas at all in any way, was just implying that his knowledge and skill with all things Land Rover is far superior to mine in every way. I’m just a farmer who fixes a few land rovers in the winter when I have time.

Well regardless, thanks again Pete for your help.

Will let you/you all know how I get on at the weekend, hopefully the water temp will be 40 and all is well!...

How do you know if you have the manual controls / timer fitted on the D3 had no sign of the webasto workingat all over the winter months and during the snow. Had a few x5’s And could hear them running in the morning I can only presume mine needs taking apart and cleaning out to get it working. Are there any fuses to check?

So.... all seems to be working ok, I think! The heater came on for approx 24 mins and the pump stayed on for another couple of minutes after that, the coolant temp got up to 43c when running but then 40c when it has stopped.

The internal fan seemed to be clearing the windscreen, although it wasn’t a furnace!

What I have noticed though, and the reason for the smoke under the bonnet, is a leak from the start of the pipe that runs from the heater to the little exhaust-can thing, smoke is leaking from around the joint so hopefully some exhaust jointing paste and a tighten up will sort that out.




So all is well, thanks for everyone’s help.

Interestingly, my engine coolant temp readings were within the engine tab rather than the auxiliary heater - may be it’s a difference between D3 and D4’s??

The engine coolant temp is in the engine tab, the heater coolant temp is in the heater tab Thumbs Up

Thanks Pete, I just didn’t have anything resembling coolant temp in the heater tab, see below, hence looking elsewhere and finding the same worded option (but possibly it now seems incorrect) in the engine tab.

The engine was off and cold and I gradually witnessed he coolant temp increase while being heated by the FBH, it rosr to 40c which is what you had previously mentioned, therefore I thought I’d found the right tab....

Must be a bit different on a D4 than my D3. Doesn’t make any difference where you see it though, as long as it’s getting warm which it is.

I know on my friends 66 plate the heater is so quiet compared to mine that you don’t really know it’s running, mine sounds like a jet fighter when it’s going lol.

Thanks Pete

The heater itself was like a quiet jet fighter, I can then hear the pump working after the heater has stopped heating.

I had a look underneath and can see the heater exhaust which seemed to be working all ok, no smoke just clear “air” coming out.

I think the previous smoke I mentioned coming from under the bonnet was the leak i have found in the heater-to-exhaust joint, which isn’t the end of the world and hopefully something I can fix myself.

Shows though what a good job the little exhaust is doing if what goes in is smoke but what comes out looks clear!

Thanks again for all your help.

Mark

Yes, I seem to remember someone saying it might be that...!
