Hi all,

I wonder if anyone knows the answer to this problem.

When this vehicle was serviced, unfortunately the ramp pads were positioned on some additional wiring feeding LED lights on the 'chrome' bars below the sills, cutting through the insulation. The front interior lights stopped working, and when the wiring was repaired we expected to find a blown fuse, but we could only find one fusebox in the underbonnet area, but no fuses blown. Is there another fusebox hidden away somewhere as all searches failed to locate one?The interior light switch on the dash has been tried in every position without success, and if power is supplied to one of the severed wires the interior lights come on. 

Any help will be gratefully received!

Merv.

If its like earlier model,s there is another fuse box above you right leg as you sit in  the drivers seat. I always find the owners handbook the best for fuse location on most cars.

Many Thanks Kev, but I should have said in my original details that this second fuse box by the drivers leg does not seem to exist. Autodata lists it there up to 2002. We took a few of the dash panels out and could not locate it.

Help!

I can't help you with fuse locations Unsure but this car will have a probably have a body control module that supplies power to the interior lights circuits. It might be worth disconnecting the battery for a while and then reconnecting to try and reboot the system.

Regards, Ian.

Many thanks Ian.

Before looking for any replies (honestly) we had taken the plunge and disconnected the battery. You are quite right, everything is back to normal.

Many thanks to everyone for their help. With todays motor vehicle I don't think I'm alone in wanting help! You learn something new every day!
