Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi All

1500 miles of trouble free motoring in the new TiD, until today. Popped out for some KFC, returned to the car and it wouldn't start - no lights coming on, like the battery was dead. I got the guy from Halfords to check it (it was in the same retail park I was broken down in) and he said the battery was good. So called the breakdown service and the guy came out, checked battery, gave it a boost - still nothing. Then he checked the maxi fuses located just below the battery and we found that No. 2 was blown. Replaced it with the fuse from position No. 1 and the car started - happy days!

I popped over to Halfords to get a couple of new ones, put one in and tried to start the car - same issue. The fuse had blown. Tried another and again when cranking it the fuse just popped.

The car is in the car park still, they couldn't recover it at the time as it was too busy and the truck would not be able to manouvre - having it taken to a local auto electrician to diagnore the root cause. Having done some reserach now, it seems that the fuse that keeps blowing is No. 2 in Fuse Box 501. This is linked to the following: -

60A fuse: +30 supply to J55, which in turn feeds

Fuse 17 in fuse box 22A (this is the one for the ECU)
Light switch 10
Main relay 229
Starter relay 517
Glow plug control module 596
Crimp J56 which in turn feeds fuses 1,16 and 22 in Fuse box 22A

Does this mean that one of the above might be the faulty system? If I give this information to the auto electrician that should save them some time I guess.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions please?

Thanks in advance.
