Thanks zulu705, my van suffered the same fault yesterday and without this information i wouldn't have been able to fix it so quickly, got it back home with a jump lead on the gearbox earthing point to the chassis. Well done !!

The offending strap is located on the front/right/bottom end of the gearbox (looking at front of van) and bolted to the chassis below the battery
