    Pleas help!! Vectr c fuse box problem

    Hi,I own a 2003 Vectra SRi 2.2.
    I know it has two fuse boxes, one on the left side of the dash and one on the left side of the boot.
    I kneed to know what fuse does what, as I removed the fuses one by one to check the ns fog lamp fuse and I think iv'e replaced one or two in the wrong holes.
    Does anyone have a list of fuses/raitings and there numbers for a vectra c ???
    any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Simon.

    Yea I left caps lock on
    The electric windows don't go up automatically now and you have to keep the switch pressed for them to work. They don't work remotley now either. and I still havn't sussed out why the near side fog light is not working, i have checked the bulb (and replaced it anyway) and the tester is reading 0v on the live terminal in the lamp cluster, the off side workes fine, It thought they would share a feed, but obviously that's not the case. I have found loads of lists of fuse numbers for the Vectra b but carn't find any for the Vectra C. someone must have a haynes manual, or as Tom says, a owners handbook.
    Pleas help !!

    Forgot to say-I did remove the fuses one at a time but I must have put a fuse into a previously empty connection.

    re the windows

    open the windows press the button so the windows go all the way up

    then hold the button on the up position for 5 seconds and then they should be one touch again

    as they have been de-powered they need resetting

    its only one if i read correctly that doesn't work.

    so when you turn the fog lights on only one works and there is no volts at the plug for it?

    Only the O/S/R fog lamp will work. It can be programed with Tech 2 to be on the O/S or N/S but not both together. You would need to run a wire from the O/S lamp to the N/S lamp

    re -jack off,
    you mean to say only one fog light will work, not both at the same time?
    Forgive my ignorance but why is this?
    It just seems strange that they don't work at the same time.
    Yes Tom, I have no voltage at the center pin in the cluster, that is why I started looking at fuses (after changing a OK bulb anyway).
    If there is only ment to be one functional fog lamp at a time then I'm not bothered, just I hate it when things don't work as they should, especially on a car as young as mine.
    Thanks all, for the help and advice, would still like a list of the fuse number-function anyway.

    The O/s/r fog lamp works fine, it's the near side rear one that has no voltage at the centre pin. Changed bulb, then started checking fuses. Don't know why this is ?

    Most cars only come set up for a driver side fog light, even though the passenger side one is in there... Don't know why, I would have thought two would set out a clear mark of how wide your car was in fog???

    But yes, it is correct for it to have one fog lamp.

    (Two on the front of course)
