    purchased a classic b644 hymer yesterday (fiat ducato 1993) , on way home from Yorkshire I lost use of my blowers, brake lights and indicators! Remember hearing a sound like a fuse popping but I have had no joy locating the fuse boxes.
    I would be most grateful for any advice
    Thanks
    Lee

    Hi
    Welcome
    Can't help you but stuff like that happens when vehicles aren't used .......... fuse blowing might be from the indicator stalk - just guessing as I had a, not that old, Ducato that did something similar - problem went after moving the stalk about.
    Someone with a B644 will be along to tell you where the fuse box is(y)

    Found them thanks , found some in the glove box, some by the left side wheel arch and some in the engine bay, replaced all the blown fuses and some doggy wiring that was for the fog lights that don't work, fingers crossed all seems well

    Jessie is lovely. We had a classic Hymer as our second van and it was wonderful. I cried when we sold her but at th time we couldn't keep her and weren't using her - we now have Buffy who is much more modern and smaller and more suited to our preset circumstances. In my heart I still miss Miss X though........

    Great looking motorhome

    A good friend of mine (now sadly no longer with us) had one just like that - he used to use it as overnight accommodation when travelling up from Brighton to London to do 3 days per week consultancy. It pretty much paid for itself within 18 months. A lovely thing that first planted the seed of buying a MH with me.

    Thanks for the advice, lucky enough Jessie has just had a full service including cambelt and a rather expensive MOT before I collected her.
    Just in the process of a interior refurb and a detail on the outside to bring her back to full glory.
    This is my last free post!
