    Inside the right-hand cubby hole, the fuse box being clipped to the A-pillar, with a plastic cover (if lucky) clipped in place.

    The two fuses! Will be as Simon describes unless someone’s mucked with it. Highly unlikely in the case of your car 8 would’ve thought.

    It's easy to find which fuse has blown by keeping it simple with two fuses... Not so easy to find which circuit is the fault...

    I had such an issue last year and eventually found whatever it was that was taking half the car's electricals out! It was an operator/modifier error of some sort if I recall. Over the years, the 4CV has had fuses added by its young owner, and more recently by its older owner. Now I've no idea what's really been done in detail, and that is a lesson in itself!

    Its a real pest, I have taken out the faux timber dash, and reinstalled after having it wrapped, looks great, I disconnected the positive on the battery, whilst fiddling with cigarette lighter connection and wipers, and put back together making sure that the right wires were in place for the wiper switch, connected up the battery and now no wipers, no interior light, and even though the ignition lights red and green light up no ignition , the alarm, which normally blinks, only shows red when the ignition is on, my auto electrician recomens its a fuse issue, but then I had to look for the fuse box. found which appears to be a fuse box in the left open glove box. Or is it part of the alarm, havnt had a chance to look yet, may do tonight if not tomoz.
    what a pain.
    will let you know what transpires.

    By "left open" you mean "left-open" and are referring to the little open cubby-hole to the right, right?

    Bugger, something is the wrong way around. Some Renault circuits run positive to the switch, which earths positive when actuated, such as oil pressure and temperature warning lights. Others run positive from the switch to whichever device it is. I'm wracking my brain to remember what caused me my problem last year. And yes, I was messing with it and caused several fuses to blow before I found the problem I'd created myself.

    Ah, one fuse problem was the 4CV, where a headlamp earthing braid (yes, mine) shorted the main feed to high beam, so when I turned on the lamps the fuse blew. I'm sure I had an R8 fuse blow too.

    Good luck with it!

    Take things off, one by one, until the fuse doesn't blow. At least that is a starter.

    I'm only guessing here but from looking at the circuit diagram that I have here, I think you have dislodged a wire which is easy to do.

    The book I have here is a Scientific Publication, and it shows what they describe as a "connector on instrument panel" and looking at the circuit diagram there is a wire that comes from the battery to this connector and the goes to the headlights on one connection, the other connection goes to the fuse box that supplies the fuse for the interior light and wipers, also on this same connection there is a wire that goes to the ignition.

    I can scan this wiring diagram and email to you if you PM me your email address high lighting where I think the problem is.

    COL, that rings a bell. Assuming he has the standard dashboard and not a 10S setup, I think there is a 12v ign feed which connects to a buzz bar in effect on the back of the dashboard, from which other wires get their 12v source.

    Problem solved, I had time today to look at the problem, found a small fuse box, which I could not find before, replaced red fuse and all returned to normal. With the alarm on the car I thought that may have been the problem. Now looking forward to a run on the weekend, thatís everyone for your input

    Great. Did you find THE fuse box (on the A pillar), or had someone installed a second fuse box somewhere else?

    Excellent! I'd guess just one wire touched earth while you were playing around with things. Hopefully the fuse will stay unfused.

    Second Kevin's question - was it the original one or an 'extra'?

    Yep, that's original. KB was wondering whether there was another added later. I still can't remember why I was blowing that red fuse myself.

    Hold on, got it!! I fitted an extra, mechanical brake light switch operated by a curved rod behind the brake pedal and a wire fell off. Every time I touched the brakes, the fuse blew!!
