Hi there thanks

Ok is there voltage to both sides of fuse 17 in passengers fuse box in passengers footwell

This fuse must be inspected /tested firstly

What commonly happens is the bulb is either the wrong way round or has a short inside it

Instead of blowing a fuse the body control module shuts the system down

As it has a fault code for a short circuit

The system won't resume /power up aga in until the fault codes are cleared from the body control module/ bcmii

This needs to be done by compatible diagnostic equipment

Hi there yes the diagram shows fuse 17

As the power output fuse

If there is no power to this fuse the bcmii should be cleared of all codes to resolve the issue
