Had the RAC man and his backup baffled for an hour when the 2001
Mondeo GHIA X 2.0 petrol died on the wife at the weekend. Driving
along as normal in dry condition and it dies and wouldn't restart. The
10 A fuse 42 in the auxilliary fuse box had blown. The handbook says
this is the engine management system. 10A seems a bit high and a
little disconcerted as to why it blew. Fuse was replaced with another
10A and it's been ok for 150 miles plus since. RAC man says he's never
even heard of the problem never mind seen it for himself.
Obviously drawing too much current but why ?
Although fairly rare, it's not impossible for a fuse to fail due to fatigue,
especially if it spends most of its life going from off to near its maximum
I would only start to worry if it blows again...
