    According to my Fiat handbook for the 120Multijet parking light fuses are in a fuse box which in my model (Ducato) does not exist though it does in the people carrier type unit. :Sad: Anybody got an idea where this fuse is as my parking lights are not working but all other running lights are. We have been motorhomig since the late 60's (mainly Home built until the 90's) but I'm stuck on this one. The only thing as far as i can see is to pull every fuse one at a time and that is a bit of a pain to see the least. :cry: Cheers, Jacobus.

    Parking lights

    A reasonable question and the reasonable answer is I dont know. :Smile:

    Bought vehicle 2nd hand but it has been through 2 MOT's in the 7 months we have owned it but it was only recently that I realised parking lights are not working. I assume (never do that Watson) parking lights would be covered by MOT? I am aware in the UK on well lit streets they are not strictly necessary but we spend a lot of time on the Continent. Why fit them but not connect them up? from sunny Lisbon, Jacobus.

    it could have changed over the last few years so may not apply now but.....

    look at the ignition lock barrel, there may be a red elongated button just in front of the key slot.

    with the key in the off position, press in the button and hold it in.
    turn the key backwards (anticlockwise) until it stops then remove the key.

    your parking lights should now be on.

    to turn them off simply use the key to start engine or just turn to the off position and remove key as usual.

    your driving side lights work as normal when the ignition is on (ign off, all lights off as well) so not a problem for the MOT.

    Hi, bit confused about the vehicle you have, your avatar says Mazda bongo, you also mention Ducato. :Smile:

    The only thing I know about Fiats that I have owned ( old model :Rofl1: ), they have had a little button on the ignition and you push that in, and turn the key back that extra position and your parking lights come ON and the key comes out of the ignition.

    Hope you get it sorted. :thumb: Bob.


    John got there first. :thumb:

    Thanks guys no red button but a piece of black plastic sticking out of the edge of ignition switch turned out to be the equivelant of the red button. :Wink:

    Having said that, that is not what is said in the handbook, still, lights do work and I was able to update a Swiss Motorhomer on site as he did not know about it either. Cheers, from still sunny Lisbon. Jacobus. :Cool:
