If an item of electrical equipment should fail, switch it off and check the fuse.

The fuse box (power distribution box), with spare fuses, relays and plastic tweezers is located in the engine compartment on the left closest to the windscreen.

Take off the fuse box lid and use the plastic tweezers to pull out the fuse for the item of equipment, which is not working. A blown fuse can be identified by the melted strip inside the transparent plastic cover, and must always be renewed.

Never attempt to repair blown fuses.

If a fuse blows repeatedly, there's a fault with the component or the wiring. Check out our wiring diagrams for more info.


Main article: Relays

As well as fuses, the Fuse box also contains electromagnetic switches called Relays. These allow a low-power circuit to turn on a high-power circuit, without the risk of high voltage running through the switch your fingers are touching. There are ten of these relays in the Fuse Box, outlined in the picture below. Their functions are connected to the fuses in the table above.
