Fuse Boxes.
« on: 13 February 2012, 13:46:24 »

Are all the fuse locations the same accross the range on Omegas?

I have Zirks/Twiglets old 2.5TD now and the horn doesn't work but i can hear the relay clicking, is there a fuse allocation list avaliable?

I really need to buy a Haynes manual  ::)

On the 2.5 turbo diesel the fuse board is under the steering wheel behind the drop down panel the fuse for the horn is f17 middle row 4th from the right as you look at the fuse board its a 20 amp one.

If the relay is clicking then I doubt it's the fuse :-\

You've applied 12 volts directly to the horns haven't you!  ::) ::) You need to know that the horns do work before you start mauling with the rest of the car's wiring/etc

Always start with the little things - Check the fuses first then move on... Blown.  So replaced that and THEN move onto the horns, nothing - So a new horn later and its working.

Sorted, cheers to those that helped and to Andy B and his excesive use of '!!' and using the word 'mauling' all in one sentance.  ::)

Its never the fuse or the relay. Omega has advantage you can hear relay anyway, leaving only 2 likely culprits...  ...loom near horns, or horns themselves.

I did say. Wiring about 2mm from plug. Corroded. That to get spare bits of loom, as couldnt get a decent joint on the originals.

When that happened to me on my previous omega it was the hedgehog.Take care in getting the old one out,I snapped off the plastic retaining clips and had no way of holding the new unit in, it ended up located with a piece of wood placed carefully.It was very cold when I did this which maybe why I had the problem be prepared to lay on your back in the seat well.

I always recommend wearing a pair of clear safety glasses. Easily available for around £2 - £3. Try Screwfix or Toolstation or amazon etc. You're on your back with very limited room to manoeuvre and there is a risk of unexpected crap falling into your eyes. Especially as this is an old car.
