    Default Can anyone shed any light on this?!

    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help me out with this problem, before I take it to an auto electrician, recently tried changing the glove box light in my Vectra, which caused a pop or short circuit, but in doing so the glove box light, interior light, LH and RH vanity mirrors, rear interior light and luggage compartment light now won't work..******!! Ive tested a few relevant fuses but can't locate the problem think is it possible a relay has stopped working, also heard there are fusable links in the wiring that could have gone that connect everything in series. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Matty.

    knowing VX there will be about 4 fuses just for those curcuits as some Vx's I have owned have had 2 fuses for hazards and radio for example.

    I;ve not had my C for long but there are fuses in the engine bay, boot and on the passenger end of the dashboard so I would grab the user manual and check all fuse boxes.

    Hi Mate, just had a look for ya and I hope this is right. It appears they are all controlled from something called a 'Body control unit' this is fed from fuse F7 30amp in the passenger fuse box - first row 7th fuse down. Hopefully that will help.
