HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

The is most likely a faulty body control ecu, which is also called the central junction box, which is the fuse box behind the dash. It is a combination fuse box and body computer which controls the various electrical accessories. It should be tested with a scan tool and replaced and programmed as needed.

Hi,As I understand ecu supliers power in to the passenger fuse box, but that box does work except 3relays which switch horn, lights, wind screed wipers.
Also side lights and rear lights working well.
So you mean I shy old drive in to local garage where they have plug in computer?
UK Auto Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago

HI,

It has individual circuits for the different components it controls, so not only is it possible for only a couple of circuits to fail while the rest work fine, it is very common for this to happen
