The 'Electrics' Project - Fuses

As stated we have 2 fuse boxes, one contains 4 fuses (1-4) and the other set of six in-line fuses (5-10), so the obvious step was to look at each fuse, determine the rating and the wiring colours and remove each one and see what happened.  This was the result

*   All these fuses stop the Fuel Pump from working but everything else worked


I assume that Fuses 5-9 all relate to ECU/Fuel Pump/Lamda Sensor functions which cannot be evaluated. 


Later:   Found another fuse right at the front of the car mounted just in front of the cooling fan, and that is what it controls.   I will refer to that one as Fuse 11.
