:-) I think I may try it. "What could possibly go wrong?" :lol:

After I had a good cup of coffee today, I felt slighly embarrased. Yesterday evening I somehow must have overlooked the fuse box layout in the manual :oops: Maybe I didn't expect to find it there?
It's on page 125 or so of the 300-pages PDF :roll: (online or as download at https://service.citroen.com).
It is NOT, however, in the 90-something pages printed version which came with the car.

I also noticed that the fuse box documentation changes from 23. October 2019 to what Arfur posted yesterday. It seems more fuses are explained in the version before that date but some are only documented in the later one. I thought I could post the superset of both here but I'll need another cuppa first, as some entries don't seem plausible:

before 23. Oct 19:
F1 10A
Electrochrome rear view mirror, demisting rear screen, Diesel particle filter, parking sensors, power steering, LPG system, clutch pedal switch, door mirror adjustment.

really? all that on a single 10A fuse?

from 23. Oct 19:
F1 10A
Door mirror adjustment

:roll:

I agree, it seems a bit odd.

But with all the Citroen documentation, take it with a pinch of salt :lol:

Fuses are designed to 'blow' and drop power to the protected circuit and the said circuit is designed to be powered down in this way.

Pulling a fuse is just like a fuse blowing, so the car sees it the same way and the Citroen engineers have anticipated this event.

I think everything will be fine 8-)

Thanks, I know my way around electronics :-) But you know, "famous last words" :lol:

So, another rainy day and another cup of coffee later I compared the pre 23. Oct 19 PDF - which was actually created in 03-2017 - with the more recent one which is of 10-2019.

Sadly it seems I can't attach PDF or RTF files? And there is no table formatting in the editor? :(

Thanks, but I don't see the button to attach files to a PM.
So I reply here instead to attach a screenshot :)
