Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

Thank you,

Hello and Welcome ..

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help / advise you .

First though - what is the mileage on the van?

What is its service history like?

Have you had any plug in tests / checks done at all on the management systems - and if so, with what results?
