Under closer inspection checked the fuse box under the bonnet and number fuse number 26 is blown. It controls right hand side exterior lighting gonna change that and see what happens.


My Haynes manual has Engine Fusebox F26 supplying mirror control switch, folding mirrors and driver's electric window! Well spotted and I hope it works.

I don't understand that as the Haynes manual suggests those headlight bulbs are each fed from different fuses (13, 14, 15) in the engine compartment which are relay controlled. Dealer sounds the best bet on that one!

Does that Haynes include 2014 ecoboost?

I must get one.

No, it is 08 to 11 reg. I don't think the facelift version is out yet.

If you touched the bulb feed contact to anything metal when refitting it (easily done) then yes, it would blow the fuse. According to Haynes, it should be F1 in the passenger fuse box at the bottom left. If you have either automatic wipers or a heated screen then check these are working as they are fed by the same fuse.

Hmmm I am not so sure. I still remember my company 1.6 Cortina Estates which NEVER started on cold damp mornings! When they went in for service I usually had to reset the points to the correct dwell angle (and sometimes the ignition timing as well) to get them running properly again. And only 25mpg average to boot. I think I prefer my current car with all its driver aids and 55mpg.
