First post here and really need your help.
My dad needed his original Renault/Philips tape player removing and replacing with an aftermarket affair. We found him a nice little Sony effort (easier on the ol' wiring part) and a facia. "Easy" I said given with my limited experience ... and guess what ... we've hit a problem!
Whilst all the wires were connected (minus the steering column) and sliding the Sony in there was a small crack and spark from one of the plastic connector plugs.
After this the Sony wouldn't power up (it had done previous) so I changed it all back to the original and there is no power in the following places
- Clock (centre not the main dash)
- Electric Wing Mirrors
We've checked all the potentially relevant fuses in the fuse box near the steering wheel and I found a fuse box in the engine bay with 3 fuses. Every fuse checked was fine.
The problem seems to obviously relate to a fuse ... but where?????
I've read a number of posts here that suggest it could be "under the ashtray", could this be my solution???
Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
