Ok..
so mine is a 2013 Ducato.
Last time we got home the bulb (bright yellow bulb icon) warning lamp came up on dash.
I decided to check today.
Findings... no sidelights on near side. Nothing Front. Nothing rear. Everything else ok. (Including brake light on same bulb)
Took both bulbs out..ran continuity checks. Both ok 👍
checked supply...no 12v

Got Fiat book out ( oh no...).. only shows one fuse for sidelights F58.
Can I find it.. NO!!!
not under dash, not in engine bay (although fuse cover diagram refers to it) and not in auxiliary place on pillar

So I am stumped???

1. Where is the sidelight fuse
2. There must be a split system as the offside are ok..although only mention of one fuse in book?

can anybody shed any light please????
Thanks in advance
Clemmo😀

there will be another sidelight fuse as IIRC law requires separate circuits for redundancy . HTSH

That’s how I see it..
Can’t find one fuse let alone 2!
And the Handbook describes just 1?

F58 is in the fusebox in the right side door pillar, should be a cover towards the bottom of the pillar.
Headlamps are fused individually but only one fuse for the sidelights.

Agree if it is the fuse all sidelights will be out. In case you need to find those fuses in the future have a look at the other pillar.

Looks like you will have to trace the wiring, but could be a CANBUS fault.

Thanks...
So it’s sorted!!
There are no sidelight fuses on my vehicle.
The Canbus control unit is split into two and automatically resets when it finds no problem
I found one number plate bulb had gone.
Replaced and the system reset and removed dash icon👍
happy days.. everyones a school day!

thanks for the support
