Thanks for the update. I would check the wiring and connector pins for any shorts, corrosion and damage to the heater and for any debris etc in the heater itself. Sounds like you may begetting some unusual smells if there is smoke? Electrical burning smell etc?

Hi is there any way of getting the faults for night heater on the lorry itself or have I to plug in laptop didn't get time too do it yet hence the slow reply
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Reading fault codes
D1LC
Under normal operation the display will switch
between HEAT and showing the time. If a fault
should occur, the fault code is not displayed
automatically.
1 Connect a spring-loaded switch to control
unit connection B, between pins 9 and 11.

2 The control unit is located by the heater
under the centre panel at the rear wall.
3 Close the switch for at least 2 seconds and
then release it.
4 Read the fault code from the operation unit
display.
Up to 5 fault codes can be registered and stored
but only one can be displayed at a time.
If multiple fault codes should arise, the first fault
code must be rectified before the next is
displayed

1 Connection B.
2 Switch

Click above. The CCT unit can be used to access codes and a switched jumper as shown in the link. Please take a moment to rate my service as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site. If interested I posted an offer for the manual to help as well. Just let me know if accepted so I know to post the link on my next login.
