The fuses in front are.
Next to the brake booster.
In rear right trunk corner.
They look like ceramic torpedo's. Lol.

on my 92, *6 fuse in the trunk is behind the plastic cover facing you when you lift the lid. This fuses the Antenna, central locking, IR control and Trunk light. Sounds like the problem, check if the trunk light comes on when you lift the lid, you will soon see if the metal strip is broken when you remove the fuse.

I think the wiper fuse is *11 in the engine compartment as indicated by aam.
check that before going any further.

If your fuses have the silver alloy strips on them, do yourself a favour and replace them all with the copper strip type. You will have a lot less gremlins in the future.

They more look like suppositories

And yes, if they are the old type Alum, replace them all with copper ones. Also check and clean the contacts of the holders too.

Hmmm! could be either.


Just don't get them mixed up :crybaby2:


I see, electrifying.....

The blue are for men.

The pink are for women.

Are the silver for the third sex?

Hmmmmm.
Is that why there are more???
That makes sense.

Hey I am joking here.
Don't start a war. Lol.

aam.
