I hope you all are well. I have recently purchased a 1969 Austin mini 998cc and love it. I have big plans for the engine in the future but at the moment just want to get to the bottom of a frustrating electrical issue. The cars windscreen wipers, indicators and break lights won't work. Also the fuel gauge and the temp gauge won't work either, although these do light up when the headlights are switched on. The interior light, horn, full beam and dipped beam headlights all work along with the speedo and the oil pressure gauge. The back lights also work when the headlights are on. I have a feeling the blower doesn't work either as it only seems to let air through when moving at speed so I suspect this is just natural air movement. The car has a twin fuse fuse box and the top fuse blows (35 amp). The bottom fuse is fine (which I think fits with the electrical diagram I found). Does anyone have any hints or tips on finding the cause?
Thanks in advance
