I ask, cause copper have the interior lights disabled, so they can sneak up at night, open the doors without the lights going on etc.

So have it always not worked, or is it a new thing?

what a day... i was checking a few fuses and pulled this one out and couldnt be sure where it went back in - i checked the BA fuse diagram i got off the net (books didnt come with car) and it said it needed one for nav and not one in 9. i put it in nav and it wouldnt start. I then replaced it in 9 and it started.

is this because BA fuse box is different to bf fuse box?

interesting nonetheless.

anyway, fuses seem to be good, just no power to interior lights when door is open or button is pushed on dash...

so would anyone have a bf fuse diagram to check the difference between them? or any ideas on what fuses or anythign else to check to make sure im searching in the right place.

You sure it was 9 and not 6 that stopped the car from running? BA/BF and territory all share the same replacement fuse pannel... Whats in 25? Should be a blue 15A. Thats the interior lights.

25 has a good fuse which I checked with another just in case. The locations I highlighted in red are the exact spots which is why I'm confused!

Yeah I think that's my next check. Not sure exactly what to check, does the fact the button on dash doesn't turn on lights mean its something more complicated light the bem? I know the kiss theory applies with these problems but the fuse prob threw me for a bit
