PIR controlled awning light

As fitted to our 2016 Triton
The PIR switches the light on when it senses movement but the light immediately goes off. After a few seconds it will repeat if movement is detected. It works fine when switched to permanent on.
Anyone know of a fix?
Or what make the unit is?
Iíve asked Cameron at Leisure first and they can order one in from Hymer but at well into three figures of pounds itís a bit steep.
Any suggestions before I commit several beer vouchers to Leisure first

Never heard of one on an Eriba but my home one has 2 screws to adjust sensor distance and adjust the switch off delay.

Might also be worth seeing if any moisture has got in

My PIR doesn't last long, it's just long enough to get in the awning and open the door and then I flick it to permanent if I am staying outside. I think that is it's purpose, just to greet you with a light long enough to open the door.
Mine is a 2015 and it's always been like that, don't waste your beer voucher's..

Thanks for the replies. I think Iíll attempt to dismantle it and see if there is anything obvious inside.
At least a replacement is available if I need one, albeit at a price.

I'd love a PIR controlled awning light on my 2005 Triton - were later ones all like that? Can they be retrofitted?

Well I got it off and itís completely sealed so if moisture has got in itís staying there.
Weíve decided it will now be just an on/off light from now on. North of £130 is too much to pay for the PIR function.
I donít know when Hymer introduced them but they have been standard since 2015 at least.
Retrofit should be easy enough but you will need to add a second switch for ďOn PIRĒ.

Is there any indication of make or manufacturer on the unit, Jef?

And I presume there are 3 wires to connect it to power and PIR.

Yes three wires and wording of which colour is pos, neg and sensor is etched on the back of the unit. No sign of a makers name just a code number ADL013-BS-HY and a serial number P161027G. Nothing else other than a CE mark and the voltage and wattage (12V 2W).
The wires just disappear into the inside which is filled with potting compound.

I guess the last 2 letters at the end of the part no. ADL013-BS-HY refers to Hymer.

The ADL013 base product must be this unit, here.

It shows the PIR sensor is behind the cover to the left of the LEDs.

Not much help at all really!

(I'd thought of e-mailing the fella mentioned in their Contact Us panel, but having seen his name perhaps he may not be particularly helpful)

Well done finding the manufacturer John, not that it helps much. A quick google and nothing comes up for stockists.
As you say, contacting them possibly won't be much help :)
There doesn't seem to be any alternatives on the market either. I've found a couple but both are two wire and thus PIR operated all the time they are switched on, no option for permanent on. So we'll stick with what we've got.
