    After replacing the battery I found that the radio and reversing camera have no power so I thought I'd start with the fuses.

    According to my manual on my Transit (09 plate) the radio fuse is number 73 in he passenger fuse box behind the glove box.

    Problem is, it doesn't really look anything like the one in he manual and the fuses only go up to 62 (I think). There's also no little icon of a radio in the picture printed in the lid of the fusebox so I think it must be elsewhere. Where do I look now?

    Have you tried the fuse box under the bonnet.

    That's just all engine related stuff.

    If you look at page 108 or 109 in the handbook it looks like the passenger compartment box is behind the standard relay box, the passenger compartment box holds fuses 63 to 83.

    hi again tim, I think you are looking in the relay box.. fuses in there go to 62. that unit unclips and swings down to reveal the passenger junction box behind it, and think as you said the fuse no 73 in there is for radio power supply.
    if the radio has lost power you will also need to re code it to get it working

    Ah, I did wonder about a hidden box behind the one I was looking out but I couldn't see how to fold it down. I'll have another look in day light. Cheers.

    Well I've had a good look but darned if I can work out how any part of this fuse box folds down. I freed a few clips bit nothing loosened or became slideable or hinged. :-( I feel a trip to the ford dealer comming on.

    Incidentally, I lost a set of keys last night. This was where I found them this afternoon!

    You are looking at the fusebox behind the glovebox inside the van not the one in the engine bay?

    lucky you, that no one else found them... done the same myself lol
    the relay box will unclip and swing down.. it is awkward but there are two plastic clips at the top sides I think, which you push in and it releases the relay box to pivot down. good light will help spot them.

    Finally watched a YouTube clip, braved the elements and got the fuse box open! Woohoo!

    Everything working and radio re-coded, despite the crap Ford instructions. ;-)
