If you blow fuse 10 (10amp) you loose the following.

Indicators, Electric windows and roof motors, all dash gauges and the gear shift release.

I seem to have blown my Gauge fuse, the above mentioned has failed. It seems like it wont go past 2nd gear as well. I've tried replacing the fuse but it blows it as soon as the key is turned. Must be a short?... Im out of ideas as to what to do apart from getting a multimeter and testing for shorts. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yeah you have a short cct, only thing you can do to find it is disconnect parts from that circuit as a process of elimination - good luck! hope you find it!

I recently had a 10 amp fuse blowing on me that shut down the indicators.I would replace it and sometimes it would work for a while then blow again,other times it would pop as soon as the key was turned.
Ultra frustrating....
Turns out that a helpful mechanic had changed the park light bulb that was not working at W.O.F test.He had put in too large wattage bulb.So the indicator fuse would blow when the park lights were or had been used.
Changed the bulb,fuse...all good now.
Only picked up the problem because at the next W.O.F test that bulb was dimmer than it should have been.

Thanks for your reply's.

Just got the call from my mechanic today, and was surprised and relieved to find out everything is ok. He said he basically checked and cleaned the main fuse and it fixed the problem. I urged him to double check and be sure to drive it around because when I was troubleshooting it before it would work the odd time but if I drove around it would blow again. But he assured me that he drove it around started it a few times and everythings ok! Great for me, he just accounts it to a possible loose main fuse connection.

I've always heard that electical problems are either quick, easy and cheap or super complicated and expensive, in this case it turns out to be the former...I hope. It seems almost to good to be true, but I'll stay positive.

I take it that this isn't a negative for the electrical situation Smile Glad you got it sorted
