Please can anyone help me? I have a blown radio, cigar lighter and int light fuse I heard it blow when I plugged in my sat nav. I have checked the fuses under the driver seat and they all appear intact. Does anyone know if this is a special fuse or is it in line somewhere else? please help am stuck in Spain with no int lights or sat nav. Thanks Karen

Its A VW LT35 LWB Van 2004

You need to tell us what type of vehicle it is ... without that info it's guesswork.

As Canalsman says, we need to know what MH it is. My radio and Int: lights are on the same fuse. Make sure you have the correct fuse amperage. I think you will find it is either a 15A or 20A. Cannot help much until we know what MH.

There is often a fuse in the lighter plug itself and that should blow well before any main fuse., but of course that shouldn't cause any problems with the lights. Are you saying that your house interior lights have gone or just the drivers cabin lights.

Cigar lighter and radio circuit are likely to be supplied from the chassis fuse panel (under the dash or in the engine compartment) rather than the habitation panel

I would think the easiest thing is to trace the radio back (easiest to follow the wiring). A radio often has an in line fuse anyway, plus possibly another in the rear of the unit itself. These fuses should not cause your other problems, so I'd trace the wiring back and you should find the fuse. Cigar lighter shouldn't be too bad to trace back either - depends how much access you can get.

Hi Thanks for advice. The vehicle is a 2004 VW LT35 lwb. There is a fuse panel under the drivers seat but all appear ok. There are also 3 square relay type boxes 2 grey and 1 black. Do these act as fuses too or just switches? I heard the fuse blow and it sounded as if was in the area of the drivers seat.

The better option, rather than posting a comment, would be just to use the 'Report post' button to alert Phil.

There's a "Report Post" button? Where's that?
On the other hand, I couldn't resist commenting on that one!

Thanks - just used it. You learn something new every day. Any other buttons I can play with?
