Thanks for the info

Hope all is well down under

I feel that the General Module has more then likely bad in your car, Now that being said sometimes they get wet which causes them to blow the fuse immediately

I know of a company that can fix the one that you have

But you need to check a few things first or have some one check for you

1. the general module behind the glove box needs to be unplugged

2. the fuse 14 to the general module needs to be tested with a ohm meter for resistance to earth it should read infinite which means no resistance to earth

THIS IS DONE BY FIRST UNPLUGGING MODULE AND THEN TAKING OHM METER AND GOING FROM EACH SOCKET TO A BARE METAL SPOT ON THE CAR

HERE IS THE COMPANY THAT CAN REPAIR THE MODULE
