    Need abit of help or advice realy. I keep blowing fuse number 46.. Which is for my fuel n temp guage. I'm guessing it's shorting out somewhere. But from what I can see I can't see any problems. Just wondering if you guys have come across this or have any ideas?

    Does that fuse power anything more? If not then does your fuel and temp gauge work?

    If it blows straight away then disconnect items one at a time till the fuse stops blowing.

    i think it powers the clock as well to be honest... just of top of my head, and yes the guages work. if i put a new fuse in, it could stay working for short trip but then other times it would blow straight away... i cant seem to notice a pattern when the fuses are blowing.
