    Fuse help!!

    Hi All,

    Ok, yesterday i stupidly played with fuses trying to work my stereo, one blew so i replaced it.

    Now wether i took one out or dislodged one, im not sure, but basically theres a fuse (no 13) which can bugger about and disturb the alternator, so i had the RAC out who fixed this for me.

    However, now, i have no illuminations on the dash (speedo, rev counter backlights) and when i press the fog buttons, they dont come on, and i get no dash light.

    the headlights work fine. dipped and full are ok, but i only get a light on the dash for main beam

    Im thinking this is down to a fuse gone in the main light control area above the fuse box, but im unsure which fuse sorts the illuminations for the lights,

    Can anyone help?
    thanks, Andy

    Have a look at the sticky at the top of this forum and check all the fuse locations. You have nothing to loose by adding some if needed
