Hi, I have just noticed that my drivers side window is not working and also the wing mirror adjustment switch isn't working either, I am sure I have had this problem before, but my ex partner sorted it. I can't remember what we did i.e fuses.I know there is a fuse in the glove box but the left hanside window is working, so Ithink itcan't be that. my other fuse box is located to the right of the engine, as you look from the front of the car, but i have no diagram as to say which is which fuse. Any helo will be much appreciated. Thank you

Welcome to the forum headcookie,
I know there is a fuse in the glove box but the left hanside window is working, so I think it can't be that.
There is an extra, hidden fuse box (the 2007 has a hidden fuse box). You can see the fuse box locations and the descriptions of the circuits protected in these links.

If the diagrams have blank spaces in the descriptions of the fuses, check these fuses too :)

I have the fuse box in the engine bay, but not sure which fise is which, even looking on the list provided via the link, there is no mention of window and wing mirrors, i have located the one in the glove box, but there is only one fuse in there and it seems ok, is there another hidden fuse box, and where/how do i locate it, thank you

The hidden fuse box is underneath the glove box beyond or to the left of bonnet release and behind a pulldown cover. This subject has been well covered of late in the forum and suggest you search in there.

Citroen C3 2002 to 2009 Engine Bay Fuse Box Location

its exactly where alsie2 said, above ;)

Just check each fuse until you find the faulty one, if there are no faulty ones, then the problem lies elsewhere. If you do find the fuse, let us know which one it was please :D

If the fuses are ok, then it could be a wiring problem from the BSI up to the door.

A tip for testing fuses is to remove them, test them with a multimeter and replace them one at a time. Multimeter testing is much more reliable then a visual inspection.


A multimeter with a clear display, ideal for testing fuses, and can cost less than £20 or even cheaper on ebay
