PostSubject: Fuse for fog lamps   17th May 2015, 07:33

I have two fog lamps bolted in front of the grille.

They are crap and one got smashed in the car wash.

So I bought two nice shiny ones and when fitting got the wires wrong way round and blew the fuse.

The book (haynes) says it's engine compartment number 10 but it isn't

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

FL8 or FL12 might be the ones. Would think they are not fog lights and work off that switch, but come on with high beam. You might be know on that better than me lol!

Do you know, that now you mention it you may be right. However the headlamps still seem to work.

Up to my eyes at the moment rebuilding an MG TC from 1949. As soon as I get a minute I'll check those and if not it'll be one a time job.

Thanks

OK, found time, at last the check the fuses. I checked all those under the bonnet, all OK. Then those in the N/S footwell. 2nd fuse is blown, replace it but still no lamps. Checked all 30 odd - all OK.

Then found a flying lead with a small box and one fuse in the N/S compartment under the bonnet. Blown, changed and now have spot lamps working.

Drive the car out of my workshop and find I now have reversing sensors. Had the car 21 months and never knew I had them. It was that fuse in the footwell.

Out of interest, what did you think the four plastic circles were for in the bumper? :p

To be honest I hadn't given it a thought. I assumed all Mini Cooper S's had them and some had sensors behind them, if you see what I mean.

I'm not used to modern cars, I have a 27 year old Caterham, a 42 year old Land Rover and a 67 year old MG.
