    Mk5 Astra 38 fuse blowing

    I noticed that i cant use my key fobs to lock/unlock the car i tried both and nothing so i knew it was something with the car. I looked at the manual on fuse box and i checked the back one, it says that number 38 is for central locking, clamp 30! It had blown looking at it, i had a spare but it was a 30, anyway nothing happed still. I can unlock the car door with my key but problem is the fuel door is locked ??? The only other thing Ive tried is disconnect the battery for a min and the only thing that happend there was when i pressed the center console doors button it came on then blew the 30 fuse.. so dont know what or where the problem is.... :-(

    Copied from your other post on this

    First only replace fuses with the same rating otherwise you can burn wiring out

    You probably have shorting out wiring or a burnt out central locking motor. You'll have to start by unplugging all the motors and see if the fuse blows then
