    which fuses to start engine?

    Hi from a newbie. Needing help from any autosparks here. Whilst the car (1997 1.4i astra) was parked up over the holidays, some b*****d emptied the fuse box of all the fuses. WTF?

    I have a few spares, but nowhere near enough for all the empty slots. Anyone know what is essential to get the car running. I have put a fuse in no2 as it suggests this is Fuel Injection (FI). There is a spark a the plugs, but no fuel being delivered to the injection unit.

    Any ideas. Thanks guys.

    Thanks for that. Seems the pump does not want to run then. Is the pump "in tank" or easily accessible. I will try to wire it direct to see if that is the problem. thanks.

    I can't think of where the pump is but the fuel pump relay is in the drivers kickpanel behind the bonnet pull. The red/blue wire goes direct to the fuel pump
