The car is now back here but unfortunately there no useful information apart from a print out of a wireing diagram left by the Ford garage.
I have checked out the control panel and the only thing that happens is the blue and red parts on the left hand control botton and the max fan sign on the top central switch come on.
No digital read out shows.
I checked out the fuse that I put into the wrong space.
In the fuse box on the right hand side under the bonnet, the clear plastic topped fuses on the left hand side of the box, is where I mis-placed the 40 amp blue fuse.
It appears that the A/C fuse is in the 7th slot down,with an empty space above it
When I was checking them out I plugged it into the next space up which doesn't have a fuse in it.
With the fuse in that space the heater fan ran at full power and none of the other controll switches worked.
I replaced the fuse into it's correct slot but nothing worked then.
Is there anything in that fuse capsule that could have been damaged by being in the wrong slot?
The first time we took the car in operator at the Ford garage said that the control panel was at fault .
We then obtained a replacement panel and the next time the car went in the computer showed that all the control switches on the A/C panel all had power to them and were operational, but the fault was deeper within the system.
They wanted us to buy a new 'module' for about £800.00 plus a days labour with no guarentee that it would work.
Hence I hope to find a more economical option possibly using a second hand part.
I hope this might be of help to you.
