    Hi Everyone,

    Having trouble with the boot opening and iv diagnosed the problem as a blown fuse. I press the button and get no response no noise, nothing. iv got my fuses but I'm struggling to make out which fuse is for the boot release or even the roof if that turns out to be the problem, can anybody help?

    thanks,
    Josh

    Does the roof work? Does keyless entry work? Does central locking work without keyless entry?

    If you rotate your picture 90 degrees to the left, so the fuse puller is at the top of the image, the roof fuse is the 30A to the left.

    The light for the roof being open is switched on but the roof won't open, same as the boot I get no response when I press the button. The keyless entry worked off and on before the key ring snapped off, I no longer use it because the plastic casing is completely bust. The central locking works fine.

    Thanks I didn't even notice those 2!

    Just to be clear 30a is the pink one right? I'm not the most technically informed

    Yeah, the 30A is the massive pink one! :)

    You can make an integrated key - a housing that has both the blade and fob. My video on making the single integrated key is below:

    Another question for you. Been to halfords and they don't stock the fuse it's a bit of an odd looking one to be honest do you know what type of fuse it is any anywhere I might be able to find one?

    Amazon look to have it, but I'd get it from a local, non-Halfrauds, motor factors... lord knows what shit you'll get from amazon / ebay.

    Are you sure it's blown?

    Not 100% sure but looking at other threads on copenworld it's the same simptoms as a blown fuse. What's the specific fuse name though like you've got blade fuses or micro fuses, what's the name of this kind of fuse because it doesn't look like either of those

    They're called Cartridge Fuses, not to be confused with the Blade Fuse or Fuse Link Cartridge. The CFs are not uncommon, but are getting rarer and rarer due to manufacturers switching to use the blade fuses (like the red and blue ones in your photo)... The CF type are good for high current applications - such as your 30A fuse.

    I'm still surprised Halfrauds don't have it, seeing as they have other random bits of tat. Petrol station, maybe? I'd say one that caters to truckers might have it... a car dealers would most likely have it as well - I remember my Mitzi having the cartridge fuses.
