Electric problem!!!

All of a sudden my Main headlights, full beams, side lights, fog lights (front and rear), dashboard lights and electric windows have packed in without warning!! Checked all the fuses i can think of and they all seem fine. Had to drive home with hazard lights blinking all the way. Any words of wisdom about what to look for this would be appreciated.

The train :(

I think the usual procedure is to take out all the fuses and see if anything starts working again, is that what you tried?

Your hazards work, what about the individual indicators?

If it were me, I'd also look to see if there is an earthing wire for all the items in the fuse box (I have no idea if such a thing exists, just trying to help).

Good luck with it, I'm sure someone will be along soon to give decent advice.

Try fuse F15, it should be the top fuse, middle row, in the fuse box. Also earth G53a, which from the picture appears to be just to the rear of the driver's side headlights, so may be under the plastic shroud.

Thanks very much for the advice guys. much appreciated.

Fuse number 8 was the problem. just the slightest break inside was enough to muck up everything.... my own fault really. must remember not to check fuses in the dark without a torch. doh!!

thanks again guys
