    Hi

    I plugged the sat nav in this afternoon and after a spark and a click from what must have been the fuse box I have lost power to this area. I wondered if anyone knew of where the fuse is allocated for these parts? I have taken a photo of the fuses showing under drivers seat but have no idea which one?

    Or is the fuse for this located somewhere else? Its a Merc Spinter yr 2000 auto.

    many thanks

    Marcus

    Have a look under the steering column. My Hymer is on a slightly later Sprinter than yours, but most of the chassis-based fuses are in a compartment that is accessed by removing a plate under the column.

    @JeanLuc

    I changed all the 15 amp fuses under the steering column but still no luck! could it be a larger fuse (20amp)? or could it be another issue?

    I am at a bit of a loss I'm afraid. I presume you are referring to the 12V 'lighter' socket that is part of the base vehicle on the dashboard. Have you got a Sprinter handbook for your model year? If not, they are available via MB dealers (at a price!). If it is a base vehicle issue, I can only suggest contacting Rygor MB at Cassington and asking them where the fuse is.
    If, on the other hand, you are referring to a 'habitation' 12V socket, this will be fused at the EBL - probably on either Circuit 1 or 2 (marked 'Kreis 1' 1nd 'Kreis 2' on the front of the EBL).

    Did you find any fuses blown? If there is a fault somewhere it will just blow when you put a new one in. If this is the case you need to find the fault which blew the fuse in the first place.
