Fuse for central locking. Where?

Post by simmit » Mon Mar 13, 2017 6:10 pm

Subject fuse is not in the main fuse box (passenger foot well) so I assume it's in the auxiliary fuse box. But where is the auxiliary fuse box?

Have a look in the passenger footwell, on the firewall.

If you lie on your back in the foot well you can see a few fuses behind the glove box - easier to take the glove box out to access them. If I remember rightly its the one nearest the centre console - took mine out as it flattens the battery if you don't use the car regularly. Anyway look for the brown and orange wires either side of it.

Thank you gentlemen. I would not have found it without your help.
On MB50 the fuse box is discovered on the bulkhead/ firewall and rather cleverly is completely hidden by under dash/ glove-box upholstery trim panel. 10 out 0f 10 to the hide and seek merchants at Middlebridge who thought it would be a laugh!
Incidentally, the trim panel seems not to be secured in any way other than it's a tight fit at the sides and thus rendering it further impossible to fit it above the auxiliary fuse box. Brilliant!
