Ok so im my pursuit of retrofitting factory foglights I got around to fitting a fusebox that supported front foglights. No issue there swapped over in less than 10 minutes. So I head over to the guy I know with Tech2 to activate them. So hook tech2 up, activate the fogs and the GID tells us to check foglight on the left and right as if the bulb is blown but I know both bulbs are fine. Indicator on dash works ok but for some reason the canbus system thinks the bulbs are blown and the foglights dont work. Looking at the side of the new fuse box and the date on it is 09/04 so more than likely its full can and my car is half can, could this be the issue?
Ok it gets better. My headlight washers aren't working with this "New" fusebox either so I decided to swap back to my original fuse box. So 10minutes later its swapped back, i go to check everything and set the windows, stereo and check the headlight washers but the car wont start, nothing, range showing Zero on the GID and the steering wheel symbol on the dash. So go and check all the connections in the fusebox, and #17 at end of dash too, all ok, all fuses fully pushed in and all relays in fully too. Yup panic sets in!!!!!!! So I decide to swap back the "new" fusebox and the car starts fine. Swap old fusebox back again just to be sure its not working and yup car wont start. "New" one refitted again. So looks like a trip to U Pull tomorrow to see if I can get another fusebox and take it from there........Thing is I have taken the old fusebox apart and all there is is PCB and 2 small black modules in there. Is it possible that when reconnecting the battery(I only disconnected the short live lead to the fusebox at both ends) that one of the small black modules has shorted out and prevented the car from starting?
