      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

Hi guys , have a wee problem in that my wipers , indicators and blowers all stopped working at once and I cannot find the fuse box in the engine compartment . Stupid I know but even the mechanic I took it to couldn't find it . Any clues

Theres a fuse box on the drivers side of the dash, access it by opening the drivers door.

 

Not sure where the fuse for the wipers, indicators etc is though.

To the right of the battery box. Same place as 90% of all modern VAG cars. Perhaps you need to replace the mechanic as well?

In any case, if that isn't the fuse box you need, there is another in the side of the dashboard on the driver's side. You open the door first and it's basically the end of the dashbiard . You pry it off with your key. Which fuse is which is detailed in your manual.

Thanks for the prompt replies . I know about the fuses on the side of the dash but would need to be really unlucky for all those different fuses to go at the one time .Checked the fuse for the front wipers and it was fine so looked at the manual online and it says there is a 5 amp fuse in the engine compartment for the indicator and wiper levers , if only I could find it . Have left the car at the garage and hope he gets back to me soon . There is a small box underneath the battery cover, checked those and they seem fine

Is your dash display working?  I had this and the dash didn't work either - could drive it but no instrumentation - then it all returned to normal and never had a recurrence since.  I ruled out the fuses, water ingress to the fuse box and the battery etc, and then read a few stories about the instrument cluster being the potential culprit.
