Hi, thank you hkpierce,I had no trouble finding fuse blk 1and2 I also looked under the drivers seat,but no fuse blk 3,page 8w-11-5 shows a fuse blk with 3 columns of 9 fuses which is bigger than fuse blk 1and2 but I can't find any sign of it.I have no fuse/relay blk near the battery,seems the wiring circuits shown in the manual are misleading or maybe useless.If anyone has any suggestions I;d appreciate it.

Benda missed this one! Question do you have active fog lights. there is a dual headlamp switch on your dashboard right hand side. for front and rear fog lamps it was an option only.
If you only have a single icon switch for rear fog lamps then you do not have front fog lamps. as the headlights have different numbers for fog lamp installation.

Hi Richard,my switch has two ikons, top one has two light symbols back to back with crosshatched squiggly lines,the bottom only one light symbol and squiggle,the switch is a rocker with three positions.

Then the fuse is under your steering column, but you may have a relay gone, and that's on the side of your drivers seat.
If relay is blown ! you need to do a continuity test between relay and primary fuse for voltage.

Hi Richard,
A bit OT but, where can you get the blank plastic part to fill the switch holes when you remove switches for some reason?
