    I have the bulb gone warning light up come up on my dash. 2009 Peugeot Boxer 2.2 HDi.

    I had a look and both the nearside (UK Passenger side) front and rear side lights are not working. Checked the bulbs, both ok. I don't have the owners manual with me. :Doh:
    Checked all the fuses I can find, compartment next to the steering wheel and under bonnet nearside but can't find a dodgy one.

    We are currently at Bon Repos near Barcelona, (Santa Sussanna).

    Any suggestions, pointers welcome........ no night time driving is planned....

    are you visually checking bulbs and fuses....not good enough.

    if a bulb blows while unlit, vibration/impact etc, it may appear OK.

    a blade fuse may blow very close to the end of the fusible link and out of sight.

    only accurate way is a multimeter.

    road lighting will use the original cab wiring and will be extended to suit the conversion, so the fuse will be in the original block either in/under the dash or under bonnet.

    I have replaced the bulbs as well as checking them with a multimeter.

    I have checked all the fuses I have found so far, in both the fuse panel near the steering wheel and the one fuse box in the engine bay. I have been putting my meter across the two exposed metal points either side of the spade fuses and getting a "beep" from my meter showing continuity is ok.

    I'm wondering if there is another location for fuses I have not as yet found.:Blush:

    I have checked the owner's manual for my Boxer and cannot find a specific fuse for sidelamps mentioned although the other lights are. There are 3 fuse boxes mentioned: Passenger side dashboard, driver's door pillar, engine compartment.

    Dashboard fuses - dipped beam headlamps are 12 + 13, reversing lamps are 35, brake lamps 37, instrument panel and rear fogs are 53

    drivers door pillar - direction indicators 58

    engine compartment - main beam headlamps - 14 + 15, front fogs - 30

    Someone has also had a similar problem looking for sidelamp fuses and asked the question on a Peugeot Forum but unfortunately there were no replies.

    if you mean you are probing the fuse .while the fuse is still in place then you could be getting contiuity through another bulb on the same fuse....could be something like the interior light.

    switch your meter to dc volts.

    turn parking lights on and connect one probe to earth and the other to both sides of each fuse in turn

    you should get 12v on both sides of each fuse if it is active.

    any fuse with 12v to one side only is the defective one.

    alternatively, remove the fuse completely and check continuity. of course this may be what you mean .

    There is a small panel at the bottom of the drivers door pillar held in place by one screw. It is difficult to access and to see inside.
    It looks like there are a few relay blocks there, but I cannot see any fuses.:cry:
