Fiesta Fuse Keeps Blowing

30 December 2014 - 11:12 AM

Hi folks. I seem to have a electrical fault where fuse 22 on my 07 fiesta keeps blowing. This results in me having no front left side light and no rear left tail light. I have changed out the fuse four times now and after a day or two the fuse blows. I have checked the earthing points related to this fuse (e4 and e11) and im getting a good contact.

About a month ago my wifes can was playing up and i used my car a lot to jump start it (her car is now fixed) not sure if this has caused any issues but thought it might be worth mentioning.

Again not sure if this is linked but the motor for adjusting the headlight height inside the front light cluster seems to be operating all on its own as i can hear this when i turn the lights on but without touching the selector (1-4).

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction on this as its only a matter of time before the police pull me over!!

Many Thanks for the help.

Number Plate Bulb Issues (No Power)

23 March 2014 - 05:44 PM

Hi folks. Im new to your forum and require some help. I currently drive a 2007 ford fiesta zetec s.

Ok.....was driving at night the other day when i was flashed over by another car. He told me i had no brake lights except for the strip under the roof spoiler. So i went and got new bulbs which fix this problem. Happy days!
However now both my number plate lights no longer work. I hav been out all day trying to find the reason why, where i have replaced both bulbs, checked the fuse and even replaced some corroded connectors. But still nothing. I then put my multimeter on and there is no power at the bulb connectors i also checked for continunity between both connectors and all good. I did notice when i was replacing the connectors that some of the copper wire strands were blackened (not sure if this tells you anything or not) I have been looking at other threads and cant seem to find a solution and just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem. Any advise would be great as im at a lose.
Thanks Bryan
