I had 3 bulbs not working on the heating control & the fuel/clock/temp cluster, so took the console out. Repaired the heater control ok.
But the gauges....
To cut a long story short, the bulbs are ok & the pcb tracks seem ok...if 12V is applied to the track, the bulbs work.
Measuring on the wiring loom plug contacts which seem to feed the bulb circuit, there's no power.
When I was working in the car a few days ago I did earth a +ve to the metal plate at the back of the console, so I'm wondering if I've blown a fuse.
I don't have the original Handbook (99 car), but one from a year or two later. The 'picture' showing the fuse layout in the car describes 10 fuses in a 3/3/4 layout, but mine's 5/3/2 (I think).
The book mentiones up to fuse 15, but there's 19 in a separate group.
Anyone know which fuse it will be, what else it supplies;- I don't know of anything else not working.
