F u s e s F U S E S Fuses are simple circuit devices which protect electrical equipment against the effects of excess current.
MAIN FUSE BOX
A ‘blown’ fuse is indicated when the electrical equipment it protects becomes inoperative.
Fuses are color coded to help identify their amperage rating, as follows:
The main fuse box is fitted below and to one side of the steering column; to access the fuses, remove the cover by releasing the fixing screws using a coin or small screwdriver to twist the turnbuckle screw through 90 degrees.
Checking or renewing a fuse Always turn the starter switch to position ‘O’ and switch off the affected electrical circuit before removing a fuse.
To prevent a possible fire or damage to the electrical system, fit only replacement fuses of the same rating and type. Do not replace a blown fuse with a fuse of a higher amperage rating. Always rectify the cause of the failure before replacing a fuse. Seek qualified assistance if necessary.
