    Get your owners manual out. See section 13-12.
    The main fuse box is below the little cubby hole to the right of the steering wheel. Where your right knee would be.
    Check fuse 10. It should be a 10A fuse.

    i am so glad i came back to check out the forum before downloading the service manual! That would not have gotten me anywhere anyway!
    Thanks Rex! off to fix the problem!
    Was just wondering, would you happen to know the best place to hook up the 12V for a USB cable purely for the sake of providing power to USB devices? i was thinking of pulling a cable up to the Dash so that i can keep the cables neat for the GPS and other devices in the future in case i need to charge some of them while in transit...

    done with the fuse. can't find no other path from power source to dash. decided to leave it as it is until divine intervention is available.

    The top 2 fuses (horizontal) are spares i assumed. I used the 10A and will replace the spare at a later date. Thanks Rex!

    As you said, the two top fuses are spares.

    Regarding the 12V supply - What I have done is bought a 3 way cigarette lighter extension socket from 'Pound Land' (no expense spared).
    Removed the plug.
    Cut and joined the cable for the new 3 way socket into the existing cigarette lighter wiring.

    [​IMG]

    I mounted the new sockets underneath the centre console using sticky pads and then keep several adaptors permanently connected - such as phone chargers. This is not a problem as the lighter circuit is only powered when the ignition key is in.

    The coiled lead in the photo is phone charger. I cut a slot in the ashtray (also shown in the photo).

    When I want to charge the phone, I connect and sit it in the open ashtray.

    Needless to say - I don't allow smoking in the Copen!

    Does anybody know which fuse covers the heated rear window?
    I've just found out mine doesn't work and the symbols on the fuse box diagram give no hint as to which one is the HRW.

    Hi opboy,

    that yellow thing in the fusebox should help you pull the fuse.

    The yellow item shown at the top of the above fuse box photo is a fuse puller. Just clip it over the fuse and pull.

    Hi all it works finally, thanks...but I also realsed that one of them is for ABS as i took out and try (See attached pic) . So in the end got the one next to it to replace CIG10 fuse.

    Not sure if it the same as you guys.. mine is a Japanese Domestic model (JDM) Copen 660.

    Glad to hear you got it working.
    UK660 & JDM660 fuse boxes are the same (may even be the same for the 1.3). The ABS fuse is in the same position.

    I suggest you go out & buy a pack of 10amp fuses, rather than using a fuse from another location.
    If the fuse blew once it could happen again if there is an underlying issue.

    Thanks for the advise Adam, will go and get a bag of 10amp fuses. Oh, btw are the 10amp standard size for all car or need specific size?

    What is H/L LH HI...1OA and ST-B...7A which stated in the manual? Thanks in advance

    Could it be (?):
    H/L LH HI...1OA: Headlight-left hand-high beam
    ST-B...7A: No idea

    Spare fuses are left and right of the yellow fuse puller, 10A should be the left one.

    In the owners manual on page 13-14 the usage of the fuse puller is described.

    Thanks Scooty, figure it out a movement agao when testing the ligths... as for the ST-B...7A, it seem default to be empty...think should be fine?
