Attached File  tester.jpg   8.3KB   25 downloads Hi, well that could be it in theory. Suppose it means being sat in the car doors locked trying one fuse at a time, shouldn't take more than a couple of days ! especially if there's another fuse box under the bonnet (one in the boot as well ?) I've tried to attach a photo of the tester but not sure if I've done it right.

Thanks Guys, I will check this weekend for any obvious loose earths. I've seen a current leakage detector on ebay. The connector end is in the shape of a blade fuse. Check each fuse position one at a time to see if I could find it. For £15 it maybe a good investment ?

Noticed when using the car today that my mobile phone is not connecting to the cars bluetooth. Usually connects as soon as radio is turned on. Wonder if that could be the problem? Not had chance to see in the radio menu and memory if it still remembers the phone, but the phone says that it is still paired with Ford Audio.
Just another thought, if the radio is left turned on when the ignition is switched off and the car locked, (I know the radio is quieted and no lights on the dash anywhere), can it still connect to my phone ? reason being that the radio will only be about a metre from the phone nearly all of the time, allbeit that it is next to me on the settee in my lounge, the car being just outside the lounge wall on the drive ! :rolleyes:

Check that your engine earth to chassis is tight, I had this problem on my motorhome and for some reason because it was loose the battery power was going straight to earth and draining over night,tightened it up and never done it since?!


Thanks for the tip, will do
