Hi guys,

I've just fixed an issue with my front wipers, a 20A fuse had gone in the box next to the battery, as I didn't have a spare fuse I borrowed another 20a fuse to confirm the wipers now work. However I now have a braking fault error and abs light when I start the car. Any ideas?

This may be a silly question but where did you borrow the fuse from?

It was a 20a one from the bottom left of fuse box to the right of the battery

I also removed the 50a ones from the compartment in front of the battery to check if any of them had blown

Also could somebody confirm these fuses are in the correct location, I can't quite remember if the top one is in the correct slot

Can't help on positions but have you tried sticking a 20a back in the slot you borrowed from?

Just to confirm - you replaced the blown fuse number 8 (20a) (that's the wiper one, third from the left in the top row)? ... With the bottom left 20a one that's in the second row, ie hidden under the plastic shroud, that's the fog lamps. Abs is fuse 5, 10a, but in this box it's very easy to disturb something other than the one you intended.

On the other box, the one that's hooked on to the front of the battery box, the 50a looks like it's one space out, I think it should be next to the nut with the green corrosion on it. But I'd like to be sure by checking ours in the daylight tomorrow, that is the ABS master 50 amp one. If you can wait I'll take a pic of ours and put it up here.

if you cannot see whats up with that picture you are not looking very well
Verdigris around the connection that feeds the bussbar that feeds the fuses,
undo the nut,.... clean the connection, and anything that connector runs to

All sorted now, the 50a fuse needed moving one slot over, drove around a car park for 5 mins and fault cleared

Glad you fixed it. If you do clean the nut then do disconnect the battery first, 'cos that nut is on a permanent live feed even with the engine off. 🙂
