I have been asked if I had access to the fuses by location and circuits covered, this has been covered partially in other posts but i decided to compile it and put all the information under one post.

The information below applies to cars from 69-2000 final

Main fuses (two-fuse fuse block)
Fuse Number -Connecting Rating (amp) Circuits protected

1 and 2 35amp Interior light, horn and auxiliary units which operate with the ignition switched on or off

3 and 4 35amp Direction indicators, windscreen wiper motor, heater blower, stop lights and auxiliary units which operate only when the ignition is switched on

Note: The fitting of additional accessories which are required to operate independently of the ignition circuit should be connected to the “2” terminal; accessories which are required to operate only when the ignition is switched on should be connected to the “4” terminal.

Line fuses (two-fuse fuse block)
Rating (amp) Circuits protected
8 . . . . Side and tail lights
35 .. . . Hazard flasher

Excellent stuff and something which will continue to be useful for as long as people have minis.

Can it be pinned as a 'Sticky' please?

The Site is about to under go some changes to Stickies Bob and The FAQ section, so it will end up no doubt under a heading once this has been undertaken mate
