    As such there is no Accessory Ignition position on the ignition switch...
    Just permanent live (red).
    Ignition Live (black)
    And separate from the ignition switch, there is a live when lights are on (Usually grey with yellow or green tracer).

    There is a how to on VxON forum about making an Acc position on the ignition switch, but I've never checked this out...never really had to..

    Vauxhalls aren't wired up with an Accessory position, therefore you would have to make your own, via the ignition switch...

    So in answer, until you make up your own accessory spur...None of the fuses become live in the accessory position.

    I stand corrected, but none of my 3 vauxhalls have had an Accessory position,
    They were Cav 2 (1987), Cav 3 (1994) and Vec C (2005).
    Mine all have either off or ignition on.
    What would be 1st position for mine simply unlocks the steering lock.

    Apologies if you thought I was being a numpty...just basing my knowledge on my 20 yrs experience as a Vx owner.

    Coming back to your query then...
    The clue lies in what becomes live in the Accessory position on your car.
    You would then need to look in your handbook for the relevant fuses...although again, apologies if you have tried this already.
    I'm trying to look at this in a logical manner.
