Hi there good afternoon to you
Ok what actually happened to call the AA ie was the vehicle just turning over and not firing up
Or not cranking over at all
Are we certain it was fuse 31(green 30 amp fuse in the battery fuse box

Hi there thanks
Ok do you have your registration number there so I can have a look through the wiring diagrams to confirm which system this fuse runs. And get back to you

Hi there thanks
I just had to clarify the setup as we don't see many 1.6 pumas
Ok fuse 31 is a 10 amp fuse which runs power through the fuel pump relay and then through the fuel cut off switch and then into the fuel pump
The feed also splices off to the PCM to tell the PCM the fuel pump is active
If fuse 31 is blowing it is either the fuel pump shorting out or a wiring issue (shorting to ground )
