Help! Instrument Lights Not Working!

12 posts in this topic

I put in an after market stereo/dvd/Sat nav etc in my focus yesterday but now none of the lights on the instrument panel and hate switches work

I'm pretty confident in my wiring, but think that the power for the heater panel lights may have made contact with each other causing a short.... Only problem is I can't for the life of me find a fuse for these lights to replace it..... Does anyone know where it is? I've inspected all the fuses behind the glovebox and all look fine

Can anyone help?

Hi Richard,

Have you tried putting the old stereo back in just to make sure its not the stereo causing the problem?

Not sure if it's the same but in my focus the fuses are at the front in the engine bay?

The main fuses for the engine etc are in the engine bay yes, but most of the stuff inside the car is behind the glovebox. I'll disconnect the new radio as I've just said then if that's not worked I'll go over the fuses again.

Fingers crossed that its only the stereo. Unfortunately I havent yet found a fusebox diagram for the Puma...

EDIT: Hold on... Why is a Focus in the Puma section! - D'oh!

I don't think it was you, I remember moving some threads, its entirely possible that I moved it there! It might have started in general chat, then I might have moved it to puma, in which case...

*thick moment*
