Fuse identification...
#1
When I bought the Bingo it came with a fully fitted refridgeration unit in the back which I have slowly but surely removed...it's amazing how many hydraulic hoses and cables, etc. a tiny little fridge needs.:S

I now have one last cable/plug that is annoying me and that I would like to remove without causing any electrical problems (this was the plug that fed the in cab control unit of the fridge-see photo below)

Can anyone see a fuse or plug in the following photo's of the fuse boards that perhaps should not be there? It moght just save me a lot of time if something stands out as not normal...:whistle:

TBH I think I'd just tuck that plug away behind the dash. The extra fuses associated
with it will do no harm and if you can identify them the plug could possibly be used for
other ancilliary equipment in the future.

I've tried that Ol Jeffers :S but the plug is too big to get behind the panels without cutting it off Sad

Ummmm......you may have to partially remove the centre console.
The Torx screw in the picture right behind the plug may be a starting point.

Had that one out, it gives about an extra 1mm movement Sad

I don't think I could manage it without removeng that whole lower cup hlder section which runs around the gearstick/hand brake - I can't see how to do it at all Sad

I think that is the right way to go for now as you have a better chance of not damaging anything.
If you were to cut off the plug you'd have to trace all the wires back to their sources before you did anything including
using the car!
Tracing the wiring using your multimeter is something you can be doing anyway without removing the plug, but the problem comes when you discover one or more share fuses with other circuits. If you give Rustscrat your VIN no. via PM he may be able to find the fuse and wiring diagram for your vehicle.

With multiplug connectors there is sometimes a 'tab' on each contct pin -a precision screwdriver or such like can be used to press in the tab and release the pin from the plastic block.
You would then be able to pull the wire through and put the pins back in afterwards

Cheers Evdama :thumbsup:

I'll try that tomorrow Wink

Should I disconnect the battery first?

Oh yes.

The big inline fuse holders in the 3rd picture dont look like PSA Group tack.
I think if you took the fuses out you may find the refridgeration circuit would be deadened.
Stick a multimeter in the connector before and after to see .

Agree with the above.
Those 2 fuse holders in the 3rd pic shouldn't be there, although mine has one for the (now removed) flashing beacon.
See if any of the pins have 12v, then remove the 'extra' fuses in turn and see what happens.
As with all electrical work; disconnect battery first. :thumbsup:
