Re: dash light and fog lights have gone off

ok so i will give that a go tommorrow in the light thanks,

if it is a broken earth where is that likely to be ? would it be i the same location as the fuse box ?

is this a problem you come across time to time or is it normally unheard of ?

many thanks

Re: dash light and fog lights have gone off

Glad you got to the bottom of your problem fella,
Maybe a loose connection on the bulb holder? that can generate heat or have they uprated the bulbs at all?

Re: dash light and fog lights have gone off

start your own thread after you have reread this for ideas, if you dont people may think its just the old thread and think its been sorted.

Re: dash light and fog lights have gone off

old post but comes up on google as I had this same problem yesterday caused by boost gauge shorting out. I spent hours trolling through the fuses under the footwell on the drivers side to find a 10amp fuse blown, this didnt make my dash and tail lights come back on but to my suprise theres another fusebox under the bonnet above the battery and the 20amp fuse second from the left.... Is the sidelights and dashboard fuse, job done, dash lights came on and sidelights. Hope this helps to anyone in the future

yes its in the same place next to the washer bottle the lid unclips inside the lid it tells you what each fuse is for. There is also some fuses to the right of the steering wheel behind the coin tray, open the tray and then pull upwards to unclip it, on the back of the coin tray tells you what each fuse is for.

sorry forgot they relocated it on the late classics. yours is located just to the right of the accelerator pedal its a small black box that unclips. If you go on your knee's and lean in the car, put your head where the accelerator pedal is and look right, you cant miss it.
