Exclamation Ducato collision fuel-cut switch reset how-to

Even a minor road bump can trigger the inertia fuel cut-off switch. Good to be aware of this.

I wasn't aware of that so thanks for sharing - very useful info especially given the state of some roads in the UK as I suspect a large enough pothole may set it off if it's very sensitive.

I presume this also applies to the Serval built Peugeot and Citroen equivalents?


Useful to know, thanks for sharing.

Very useful, I'll see if I can find it on our 07 Ducato next time I get in it.

Oddly I bought an OBD2 reader the other day.


This one, someone on Fun recommended it.

I'm tempted myself...

Better to have and not need than need and not have, but I suspect it'll only do basic stuff, but it'll do to check codes and turn them off it saves the cost of a muckyneck coming out, anything more serious would be beyond me anyway.

I do have a bluetooth one somewhere, that pairs up with the Torque app, that worked well, showed all kinds of info and could be left connected.
