Blown a fuse!

Posted on 10th June, 2016

Journey to pick up the cars. What a sight - 110 magnificent cars all waiting for their owners

Picked up car - all good. RA driving GY attempting to navigate !

We need petrol - WHAT no credit cards????? (editor - amatures abroad...)


All good until 5 miles from hotel when alternator light comes on - no indicators - no wipers - no rev counter ! Checked and blown fuse !!!!

"so, how much did you pay for this...?"

3 fuses later still no further forward.

Problem no more 25A fuses . Off in taxi to auto car industrial area - 550 shops we must have gone in all of them - the fuses are the old torpedo ones !

Auto spares estate - where do you start and who speaks English !! One friendly person did and was so helpful but still couldn't find exactly what we wanted. Classic cars hey!

Found some 20A ones and also a spade fuse and holder  just in case , 2 hours later - ignition barrel touching a relay under the dash.

The long sea crossing must have dislodged it.

Drama over for today. And breath.


All sorted and now we enjoy the sights - just fabulous !
