Which fuse?

Post by BrianP » Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:52 pm

Hi, I have just purchased a 1999 1.4 Puma and wondered if you could help ...

I want to park up (engine off) with the boot open all day, while I fish. Which fuse/s should I remove to prevent flattening the car battery please? I guess boot light could be disconnected and possibly switch off interior light and shut doors.

Thanks for any help.

Fairly sure but you should check but I dont think any other lights come on with the boot open, maybe fit a small switch inline with the light so you could manually turn it off rather than removing a fuse?

The fuse which likely controls that is in the internal fusebox on the bottom row, a red 10A but I believe it's responsible for the Interior lights, instrument cluster, clock and heater module.

Thank you Red! (I like the idea of the switch!)
