    S1 1216 fuse box

    Lancisti colleagues

    I am in the process of sorting an electrical problem (likely a short somewhere), and wanted to check that I have fuses of the correct amperage in the right place. I have looked through my manual and this is not specified. Does anyone know what amperage fuses should be in which position. The photo attached describes in Italian the function of each of the fuses.

    Anyone know?

    Cheers
    Simon

    I am not sure if that is the original specification, but I seem to recall all fuses in the box are 16 Amp. I lowered to 8 for some circuits with light load, but that is strictly non standard.

    Re: S1 1216 fuse box

    From the manual on page 32 I'm seeing:

    "Nine fuses (15A), located in a proper drawer under the dashboard... protect the various circuits as per the specifications given inside the drawer itself. Inside the drawer there are also located the horn relay, the headlamp control and flashing relay and a loose fuse to protect the horn and cigarette lighter circuit."

    I know mine has 8A fuses in a few locations and I haven't had any apparent problems as a result of that.

    Perfect! many thanks. My manual is a bit of a mix of different things from different manuals. I will see if I can find that. Apologies

    Yes, that is what I recall now: all fuses same rating, it was specified as 15 A, but these are probably very difficult to find today, 16 A is standard now. And some lightly loaded circuits can be fused with the next lower standard of 8 A.

    thanks again. Fen Fulvia and I (well mostly him) have now sorted the electrical issues and have the right fuses in place.

    Re: S1 1216 fuse box

    Could someone well versed in Italian provide a translation of the wording for each fuse position as shown in the photo in Simon's first post? I'm sorting a mystery loose wire in my fuse box and am curious as to what the first (or ninth) fuse protects.

    Not sure what car it is. There is a "mystery" yellow wire that goes under the dash, usually hidden away. It was for the radio (option). Goes to the back of where the radio would be if installed. Not sure if this was on all series/versions.

    Sorry, I could have been much clearer. My car is a S1 Fulvia Sport 1.3S. You can see in the photo a wire end from a white wire near the leftmost fuse position. When I opened up the fuse box that wire was merely stuffed inside that fuse holder with the wires splayed and then the fuse was pushed down on top of it. It seems to me that this wire used to be inserted in the clip because it appears there is a broken wire end peeking out from the clip. The wiring diagram suggests there should be two wires in that clip as well. I am curious as to what these wires power.

    Thanks.
