Fitted new indicaters yesterday, they work and look smart but i fcuked up my car in the process, my hazards, horn, interior light and cd player dont work and my mfd flashes, have i really messed it up or do i just need to change the fuses? What happened was when i stripped my wires i put on hazards to test indicaters, they worked so took indicater off and turned my back, the bare posi and neg wires touched and started melting! Im such an arse, do you reckon ive blown more than the fuses, cant check now cos im in uni, what you guys reckon iv done????

Cheers

likely that you've just blown the fuses, replace the necessary ones and then assess situation

always best to disconnect battery when playing with any wire, takes 30secs, can save whole lotta time and money

When you take the fuse cover off there'll be a diagram on the back that indicates which fuse does what (if its a Corsa B).

If you cant work out the icons then get a Haynes because it says so in there. And will help you with a million other things too. I'd check mine but its outside and its snowing!
