    Suspect OEM fuse?

    While away the last few days the fuse (no 6, rear 15amp) was blown. No horn, tail light or brake light. This was at 27,000kms. I replaced it with one of the spares, but it went soon after. Put in one I bought and made it the next 1,000kms with everything working.  If it goes again I know there is another issue other than perhaps the fuse itself.

    Any other similar experiences?

    Sounds like a short to me.  One that is not always shorting out (such as a wire that occasionally moves when in motion) and on the occasion it does so, blows the fuse.  If so, my sympathies because those periodic/inconsistent shorts can be the hardest to find.

    I hate intermittent electrical problems, as it is hard to track down. makes it harder for the dealer if it is not consistent. Hopefully it will no reappear, but I will have a good look at the wiring while changing the tyres.

    Hi saaz,

    Just a point to note : In my Owners Handbook, it says that Fuse No.6 in the rear fuse box
    ( Horn, Stop & Tail Lights ) should be 10A not 15A ? !

    Edited 25/7/14 to add : "Oops" - that IS for the Trophy NOT the Trophy SE which should be 15A - sorry  :164:

    Pure guess work but as the horn draws more current than the LED Stop & Tail lights,
    that would be my firt area to explore .....

    Cheers,

    On the SE model the fuse is 15 amps (I checked the handbook and had the same concern about using a 15 amp fuse, but that is what was in there) - why I don't know as it seems the circuit is the same? I might just look at the wiring diagram for some inspiration.  I did not use the horn at all after replacing the fuse the first time.

    Did the fuse look blown (little bit of wire melted) If not then probably a bad batch they are pretty cheap things and I have had some fall to bits before that I was just using as spares in the tool kit bag.

    They looked blown but time will tell if they might have been a bit weak.

    same happened to me once, just after I took possession of the Trophy; it was a short, the culprit was a loose electrical connection of the top box
